The first thing you need to do is run a fault code test on the electronics, to do that go here.

No spark from coil to distrubuter


Disconnect the ignition coil output wire at the distributor cap.
Connect a spark plug to the end of the ignition coil output wire which you just disconnected.
Connect a ground wire to the threaded portion of the spark plug.
Disconnect the ignition coil ground wire from the negative terminal on the coil (Green Wire).
Connect one end of a ground wire to the ignition coil negative terminal.
Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
Tap the other end of the ignition coil ground wire jumper on an good grounding point (for example the battery negative terminal) and look for sparks at the spark plug that correspond to the frequency of your tapping of the ground wire.
If you have a good spark at the spark plug, the ignition coil is good.
If you don't get a good spark, check for approximately 12 VDC from the coil positive terminal (black wire) to ground with the ignition switch in the ON position. You should also get approximately 12 VDC from the coil negative terminal (Green wire) to ground
Ignition Coil Resistance Check

In addition to the test above, you may elect to perform an ignition coil resistance check as confirmation of the coil's condition.

Check the ignition coil primary coil resistance by connecting an ohmmeter between the positive (Black wire) and negative (Green wire) terminals on the coil. The resistance should be 0.4 to 0.6 ohms.
Check the ignition coil secondary coil resistance by connecting an ohmmeter between the coil output terminal and the ignition coil negative terminal. The resistance should be 5000 to 7200 ohms.

You may have a bad coil or bad ground or wire connection

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.

Jeep 3.7 cylenders 2 & 4 not firing


3.7 V6, mileage?

most likely the HV wires bad.

then bad coil pack.

did you check spark directly at the coil pack?

i use 2 known good HV wires to do that and 2 good test spark plugs.

both plugs grounded to engine (shell)

that is how you test any wasted spark coil pack. 3 coil pack.

if that fails the FSM shows, unplugging it and check the coil resistances. if wrong the pack is bad,

keep in mind the res. can read ok and coil be bad ,due to internal insulation break down (internal shorts)

if thats ok. the resistance , make sure the wires are not (primary)

to the coil (the low voltage connnector)

if that is ok, its mostly likely a bad coil, (pray not bad PCM)

if tool-less? start with cheap parts , work to expensive. (guessing)





now wasted spark 101.

if one line opens , both spark plugs die. no spark

the wasted spark is wired in SERIES. ( like Christmas lights)

the magic cuts cost of 6 coil\'s.

so if the HV wires are say, cheap , carbon wire and open

you lose, both spark plugs. use MAG wire and end this issues.

get some nice NGK mag wire or Bosch Mag wires.

you can see i hate carbon wire. for good causes.

(carbon string wire)

mag wires is real wire that is coil spun and is inductive. it

has the correct impedance but is not a resistor its and inductor.

and lasts the longest , and worth every penny.

I HAVE OPEL VECTRA B(ENGINE X16XEL)MODEL 1999 THE ENGINE SHUTDOWN SUDDENLY DURING DRIVING AND NO FAULTS ARE RECORDED IN THE ECU


Check gas and spark. Check if fuel pump is still working. Do you have fuel pressure? Or can you check the fuel pressure? With key on, the pump should have put fuel under pressure in the lines and up to the injectors.
Check ignition system by checking for spark at one of the spark plug wires, with the engine cranking over. You need to see a blue, snapping spark to know the ignition system is good. If no spark on one wire, check another or all of them. If no spark, and no trouble codes-could be a bad crank position sensor. This sensor helps the computer calculate the timing of the spark, the main sensor the computer uses to signal for spark. It signals to the ignition control module (which controls the coils and the primary current to the coils ((the coils-where high voltage is created to cause spark at the plug)) ). So no spark? Could be a bad crank sensor...or a bad ignition control module...
If you have a single coil and not a coil pack, you might want to test that coil, but if shut down while driving, sounds like computer related, so check ignition controls: that would be crank sensor or ignition control module, or in worst case a bad PCM.

Not getting spark


check the coil first with a spark plug tester. then go to the leads at your spark plugs if no spark at the coil change it. .if spark found at the coil but not at the leads at the spark plug. then check the distributor cap and the rotor arm clean the contacts then check the plugs smell them of fuel if that is found change the spark plugs.

The 1992 Caprice I'm working on has no Spark to the Coil I've changed the coil and the electronic spark control module. What else besides the Fuel pump or something else could cause the problem of no start...


You say no spark to the coil. does that mean that you have checked the power to the coil & getting none or are you getting no spark from the coil to the distributer cap? If you have no spark that is most likely the problem of not starting but you can always just check your fuel pressure to see.

I was driving and it just died,we now found we do not have any spark on driver side,can you tell me what it may be,or what we should try to fit it.it will not turn over.Thank you sherry


No spark.This is indication of faulty spark plugs.But spark plugs get power to spark from coil pack. So get the connection between coil pack to spark plugs checked.If it checked out ok then its faulty spark plugs that has to be replaced,but if coil pack has no power then its faulty coil pack that has to be replaced.But if coil pack and spark plugs both checked out ok then this problem is fuel related problem.In this case the fuel pressure needs to be checked.The fuel pressure can be easily checked at any local car garage.If its low then its faulty fuel pump as well as clogged fuel filter,which has to be replaced. The voltage for spark plugs and coil pack in voltmeter will show 12 volts.Its a 12 volt part.If there is no or low volt then there is problem with the part. ------------------ Keep updated with any more queries.Thanks.

I am not getting spark out of two of the 6 coil posts, I have changed the coil but still no spark from the same two positions. 2000 Dodge caravan 3.3


check or replace your crankshaft sensor. this senses notches on the crankshaft that tells the coil when to spark. follow the wire from the coil pack back to it. if the sensor and the crankshaft gear are ok, you have a computer issue.

Checked spark at coil and the spark tester shows the spark being erratic, will fire sometimes then just dies cannot get a steady spark, possible coil or pick up?


Hello,
I would check for a spark leak through the coil wire to the dipstick as it happens comonly. If thats not the problem check the PU coil and module. There are some parts stores that can check the module as there is no self diagnostic for it. The Pick Up coil can be checked with an ohm meeter or mv test if you crank it over while testing it should produce a mv oscilating from positive to negative.

NO SPARK


No spark, means that you need to take it one step further and check if spark from the coil wire but not from the plug wires. If that's the case, you probably have a bad cap and rotor. If you had no spark at the coil wire when cranking engine, check for voltage at the + and - terminal at the coil. If none, check ignition switch. If there is coil voltage at terminals, coil may be bad. You can have it checked at an auto parts store that has a tester. Depending upon where you have voltage to allows you to troubleshoot the location of the problem.
