bad fuel injectors. bad spark plugs - inspect and or replace -- bad spark plug wires - test ohms resistance of the spark plug wires with a multi meter (5 bucks at harbor freight) -- or simply replace the spark plug wires.

I'm only getting spark out of one of the coil packs and the car turns over put won't start, please help me. Thank you


Try switching the ignition coil with the other coil and plug it in and check for spark again. If it works in the other coil location, then you need an ignition coil. Your engine is bad for valve cover gasket leaks which deteriorate the spark plug wires, so if you are going to put in plugs and wires with the new coil, I would recommend replacing the valve cover gasket and spark plug tube seals(included with the valve cover gasket set).

your spark plug wires have a rubber boot on the end of them and some times they come off and stay on the spark plug to where you can't get the socket on the plug. If you have oil on your plug wires than you need to replace the valve covers. You can use a long thin screw driver to get the boots off the plugs. It may take some time but they will come off.

yes, the valve cover gasket is the only thing that can cause this, and yes, you have to remove the cover and put a new gasket in to fix. Please let me know if you have more questions.

They are the ignition coils, the spark plugs are under them. When you have them off before pulling the spark plugs make sure the holes the plugs are in do not have oil in them, if so you will need new coil boots, plugwires and a valve cover gasket as well.

How do i plug in the spark plug coils? what order?


If it's the four cyl., the first coil pack bolts over the #2 spark plug. The #2 coil pack wire plugs into #3 spark plug. The number two coil pack bolts directly over the number four spark plug, and the #2 coil pack wire plugs into the #4 plug. The firing order is 1-4-2-3.
