SOURCE: No spark from coil pack

The most common reasons for them going out are not using dielectric grease properly when installing, and from washing your engine.

I believe this was a huge issue with Volkswagen vehicles

SOURCE: 2000 golf GTI problem, misfiring when idol

If it is hydrogen sulphide it could be coming from an overcharging battery, but in view of the misfire it sounds more like an over-rich fuel mixture could be fouling up your catalytic converter. Best course of action is to get a proper diagnosis at your garage or if you are technically minded you can buy a cheap interface cable and download free VAG diagnostic software and then do it yourself.
Hope this helps! D.

SOURCE: how do I get the coil packs off to change the

Once the Coil packs are exposed, Disconnect the connector. You may need a flat tip screwdriver to press the retaining clip at the same time you are pulling the connector out of the socket.
Once the connector is disconnected the coil packs can be pulled off of the spark plug. It may be snug so a little persuasion with a large flat tip screw driver may be needed. Do not be too rough with it. The coil packs are easily damaged so brute force may not be your best friend here.

Getting a rapid misfire in cylinder 5 changed spark plugs ,cleared the code came back on the day later ???


Hi Jason, Sounds like you have a coil pack and one of your coils is faulty. To check which coil is faulty just pull a spark plug lead off a spark plug and plug the spark plug lead onto a SPARE spark plug, Now earth it to the CLEAN motor or body (make sure the spark plug is touching metal) Start the motor, it's going to run ROUGHER than usual but you'll see if that spark plug is sparking... If it sparks then that coil is good. Turn the motor off and replace the spark plug lead back on to the original spark plug. Repeat with the next spark plug lead and so on until you start your car and the spark plug doesn't spark, THAT'S YOUR FAULTY COIL...

Where is the 5th coil pack located on a 2005 buick rendezvous?


Hi patricia, If you have a faulty coil and your car's running rough to find the faulty coil just pull a spark plug lead off and start your car, If it runs (ROUGHER) than before then that coil is ok. Turn the car off and replace that spark plug lead back on to the spark plug. Repeat with the next spark plug lead and so on until you start your car and it runs the same as if THAT spark plug lead is on or off, NOW TO MAKE SURE THIS IS THE FAULTY COIL, Put a spark plug into the spark plug lead that's off and earth it to the motor or body (it has to be touching steel), Start the motor and if that's the faulty coil the spark plug won't spark I hope this helps.....

Why is there no spark on the plug?


Two things spring to mind Pamela.

Immobilizer? Are there any warning lights on the dashboard?

Coil pack faulty. Some vehicles have one coil and a distributor. Some have a coil pack with individual coils that are electronically fired. To test a coil, you disconnect the positive connection, and leave the ground connection. Attach a wire to the battery and touch the positive connection on the coil. When you RELEASE the positive wire, the coil should spark to the High Tension lead to the plug. You can put one of your old plugs on the end of the HT lead and hold it to a part of the car that is earthed/grounded.

Initial start up the engine sounds like its running on 2 cylinders under powered intil the temp gauge reads normal ???? any body got the answer please


Cold starting misfires can often be caused by either tired high tension spark plug leads or ignition coil packs. If replacing leads, then replace with a full, new set. Coils can be changed individually, but it is often the case that if one has failed, then the others aren't far behind. Some cars have individual coil packs on each spark plug. Some cars have a single pack for all plugs and some have coil packs which may control two or more plugs.

To check for a misfire (ignition failure) follow these steps:

(Cold start) (Use a pair of insulated pliers)

1) Start the vehicle

2) When the vehicle starts misfiring, disconnect plug leads or coil pack connections one at a time. If the vehicle idles even more roughly, then that plug or pack should be considered fine.
Replug each connection before disconnecting the next one. Once you disconnect a plug lead or coil pack connection and find no difference in poor engine running, then you have likely found the offending cylinder. Check the spark plug condition, lead and/or coil condition and connections on that cylinder.

3) Replace components as necessary.

Im trying to change the ignition control module in my 1997 astrovan but i cant get it out


does it have the 6 cylinder engine with the 3 coil packs on top? If so, remove spark plug wires from coil packs, remove 2 screws that hold each pack down, remove coil packs (but remember to put everything aback as it was when finished! includes where wires were on coils), remove screw that holds the connector to the module, install new module to connector and reverse to install.

The trailing spark plugs have no spark


I have only recently fixed this problem on my 2004 RX8. My trailing sparks were not working causing misfire in 2nd cylinder. Common problem is the coil packs. Each plug has a seperate coil pack and unfortunately not cheap.

I changed all four plugs and all four coil packs which cost me around 30 per plug and 80 per coil pack. If you call around you will get these prices, however mazda charge over double so do not go there!

You can get away with only the trailing as a cheaper option but the strain may cause the leading to go aswell!! I only got my rx8 a week ago and already shelled out 800 on it!! Wish i kept my BMW now!

PO307 check engine code. i have changed spark plugs, ignition coil and ignition wires. Still cant figure out problem


Causes: A code P0307 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
* Faulty spark plug or wire
* Faulty coil (pack)
* Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
* Faulty fuel injector
* Burned exhaust valve
* Faulty catalytic converter(s)
* Running out of fuel
* Poor compression
* Defective computer

Possible Solutions: If there are no symptoms, the simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.

If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.

Hope this helps (remember to rate this answer).

I disconnected the coil packs and after i reconnected them the car wont start back up, what can it be?


If the car starts before disconnecting the coil packs, it might be the ground connection, have it checked. Check also the connections and the terminals if they are loose.
