I put the wrong type of spark plugs into a eclipse and the wrong type of gas into the car and rebbed it up it shut down and does not crank anymore. It's a 1998 turbo misutibsi eclipse


What was the difference in the spark plug, long reach, or hotter?

What was the 'wrong gas', not nitro-methane or methanol I hope?

You can try removing the spark plugs and try turning the engine by hand. If manual, put car in second gear and push backwards. If the engine turns, check for compression. If automatic, put a socket on the crankshaft pulley and turn it.

No spark on plugs


you need to run test to determine if the coil or the module is bad. Pull the center coil wire out and lay the end that was in the distributor cap on a ground source under the hood. A valve cover or vehicle frame are good grounds and turn engine over. If you get a spark off the wire to the ground, the coil is good.

I have a 2000 lhs. changed timing belt, water pump. turned engine over twice and checked timing marks. marks were inline. start engine and have a miss. checked out and found dead cylinder. swap spark plug...


Yep, did the old belt break? If yes, you may have a bent valve. Run a compression test on the engine to verify. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

ENGINE TURNS OVER BUT IT WONT START


There is no simple answer, there are to many variables. If you have access to a scan tool, pulling the codes should help. Without them its back to old school hunt and peck method. At this point we need to narrow down the problem. You need to test for spark.
  1. Tag and disconnect the spark plug wires from the spark plugs.
  2. Remove the spark plugs and install the spark plug wires to each spark plug.
  3. Ground (do not hold spark plug) the spark plug; check if spark occurs while engine is being cranked.
Crank the engine for no more than 2 seconds at a time to prevent flooding the engine with gasoline.
If you have spark, You will want to make sure you have fuel injector pulse, along with fuel pressure. If you have spark ..simply spray some starting fluid in through the air filter and hold the gas pedal to the floor and crank it over while spraying. If it fires up, you know it is fuel related( fuel pump, regulator, or ECM if no injector pulse) . If you have no spark then look at ignition coil connection and trace through to the distributor( if equipped ). The crank shaft sensor has a tendency to fail on these as well. This should give you a few things to test and check to start you on your way to narrowing it down. If you have no spark then look at ignition coil connection for power and trace through to the distributor( if equipped ). If it is DIS( no distributor). It may be the Crank sensor or the ECU. The crank shaft sensor has a tendency to fail on these as well.
The ECU uses the signal sent from the Crank sensor to trigger the spark and fuel injectors. ( make certain you have checked all fuses)

How do you test the distributor on the 2000 Xterra? Is there a diagram that explains what the voltage in or out should be?


hi testing a ditributor is usualy done visualy.. you can atatch a lead to the dizzy and the attatch a dummy spark plug, you can get them from auto shops, when you turn the engine over the plug will spark, and you can determine quality of the spark by how bright it is, you can test leads with a multimetre useing ohms for resistance and the leads should have a spec written on them, be carefull not to touch anything when the engine is being turned over because the current can be potentialy fatal

According to the obd code i am getting a misfire in the number one cyln and it kind of sputters what is causing it


1. Bad or fouled Spark Plug at #1 Cylinder.
2. Bad or misfiring Wire going from the #1 on the Distributor/Electronic Ignition Coil to the #1 Cylinder.
3. Misfiring at the #1 on the Distributor/Electronic Iginition Coil.

a. Unplug the #1 Wire at the #1 on the Distributor/Electronic Ignition Coil.
b. Using an Auto electrical testing: Probe, wire and ground clip electrical, stick the Probe into the opening at the #1 Distributor/Electronic Ignition Coil. Use the grounding clip - clipped to a portion on the engine.
c. Start the Vehicle and check for rhythmic spark.
d. If there is NOT rhythmic spark, the Distributor/Electronic Ignition Coil needs to be replaced.
e. Turn off the engine.
f. If there is rhythmic spark: Reconnect the #1 Wire at #1 on the Distrubutor/Electronic Igntion Coil.
g. Disconnect the #1 Wire from the #1 Spark Plug.
h. Again using an Auto electrical testing: Probe, wire and ground clip. Insert the Probe into the end of the #1 Wire and clip the ground clip onto the engine.
i. Start the engine again.
j. Again Check for rhythmic spark.
k. If there is NOT rhythmic spark the #1 Wire needs to be replaced. (Replace all Wires as a Set).
l. If there is rhythmic spark then the #1 Wire is fine.
m. Turn off the engine,
n. Remove and Inspect the #1 Spark Plug. Clean if necessary and Regap.
o. Reinstall the Spark Plug and reconnect the #1 Wire.
p. Restart the engine.
q, If the code reappears:
r. Replace all the Spark Plugs.
Let me know if this helped or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.Com.

96 eclipse need more info..


This sounds like the timing belt is shot. Remove the distributor cap, have your helper crank the engine. Is the rotor turning?? If not, then it is the timing belt. Some engines are rather forgiving when the belt breaks, some will get bent valves. Frankster016
