James what can I do to check coils on ,2003 accord lx 2.4


Not James, but maybe I can help: Under the dash in the fuse/relay box is the ignition coil relay. This sends battery voltage on the black/white wire to all four coils. With key in on, all 4 coils should have power to them on this black/white wire. If no power, check fuse #2, a 15 amp fuse which sends power to the ignition coil relay, and on to the coils when the relay is energized by the ecu/pcm. Only thing else to cause spark is when the ecu/pcm sends a signal to the coil's Ignition Control Module (housed inside each coil assembly), which controls the primary circuit (the black/white wire), and causes high voltage to the spark plugs.

So check the black/white wire to the coils. If power there with key in on, check for spark at a spark plug when cranking the engine over. If power to coils but no spark, possibly a crankshaft position sensor or cam position sensor giving a bad signal to the ecu/pcm. Good luck.

2002 mitsubishi galant 1 and 4 spark plugs no spark ....i need help . . i change the coil and plugs already still no spark..


Look more closely at the 1 and 4 coil, also, check for trigger signal to these coils. I mostly suspect the trigger unit.

After replacing my distributor on my 89 toyota corolla it wont start


It is possible that if you replaced the distributor, you simply have the plugs in the wrong firing order. Another possibility is that you need new spark plugs, wires, plugs, distributor rotor and possibly a distributor cap. A long shot problem is the ignition coil, but since you have spark in one plug, it is unlikely.

My ninja is losing power when i get into it. Idles great on all 4 but when i get going it loses power and seems to be just running on 3 cylinders. I have change spark plugs and wires and that didnt help....


Test the Coils . The coil produce the high voltage for wire plugs+spark plug+motor. If the coil is defective you ignition system can be wrong. see the diagram attached.

When i start my 2001 kia optima my car putters. i changed my bad o2 sensors. but not sure what the problem is. and when i drive sometimes it jerks. what could the problem be


The spark and fuel system needs to be inspected.--------- The spark plugs are getting fouled or very loose, can cause sputtering problem.Inspect the spark plugs and coil packs.The spark plugs gets power from coil pack.If the spark plugs are very old and dirty, then it needs to be replaced.--------------- The **** problem also relates to faulty worn out spark plugs or clogged fuel filter or low fuel pressure or problem with ignition coil pack.----------- When coil pack stops giving power to spark plug the car will **** while driving.---------- So very first thing you get tested is spark plugs and ignition coil packs.If they are tested good, but looks very dirty/ worn out, that can also be the reason.----------- But if spark plugs and ignition coil tested ok and cleaned properly, but still same problem, then get fuel pressure tested.If fuel pressure is low, the fuel pump and fuel filter are the cause of problem.----------- ------------------ Also one more thing, " IS there check engine light coming ON dash" ? If yes, then get the car scanned at autozone service center.Its absolutely free to get car scanned at autozone.They do it for no charge.------- In scanning you will get error codes, as per error codes, it will point towards faulty part, causing this sputtering and jerking problem.----------------- But if there is no check engine light ion dash, then get the above mentioned possibilities checked.That will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Cranks but will not start.


Ignition coil or distributor cap. Not knowing the Avenger I couldn't tell you where to find either but follow the HT leads from your plugs and you should find them. If you aren't getting a spark on any plug then the perp is your ignition coil and it'll need replacing, if you're getting a spark on some then it's the dist cap, check the contacts and give them a clean and see what happens. F.Y.I. the dist cap is the first thing back up the line from your plugs with all the HT leads going in, and the ignition coil is after the dist cap.

I think that the coil packs has installed wrong because you said that the problem started when you replaced them... so i think you should re-install.
