Maybe check the flex plate. I had a 94 concorde with a similar problem. Scanner said it was the cam and crank sensors. The flex plate can get a crack around the bolt pattern which allows it to shimmy when running. throwing off the cam and crank somehow as the mechanic tried to explain to me.

My service engine light is flashing.the van is also running rough.1996 town and country van over 200,000 miles but maintained well


On yours, it's a misfire. Plug, wire or coil pack. Have the codes read. this will tell you where to look. 301 is 1 cylinder 303 is # 3. and so on. Pull the wire off the coil, have it close, no spark, replace the coil. Spark, do a tune up. Plugs and wires.

First check the plugs. Pull the #6 plug and look at the electrode. If it's wet and/or dark (black) it's probably not firing correctly. What is the spark plug gap? Is the center electrode eroded (not flat on the end)? Swap in another plug and see if it makes any difference. How old are the plugs?

Second, check the wires. Did you replace the wire(s) when you changed the coil pack? They should be replaced periodically (I replace the wires on my '96 4Runner at about 100k miles). Check the wires with an ohmeter. Resistance should be around 16-17.5k ohms (depends on length).

FYI, each coil pack on your vehicle fires two spark plugs. The #6 spark plug is fired by the #3 cylinder coil pack, so if the coil pack were bad, most likely both the #3 and the #6 plugs would not fire.

Ignition coil problematic primary feed


older post.
how many miles, how many miles for the last tuneup.????

The PCM CREATES spark. on all cars since about 1991.
the only changes are where they hid the IGNITOR.
or how may spark coils you have.
my guess, is your enigne is 3.8L just like my 08
where is the coil pack, well see those spark plug wires.
the go directly to the top mounted coil pack. see that?

the PCM monitors the rail coil , the 3.8 has a 3 COIL pack.
and each coil runs 2 cylinders. like this.
so what is the first thing to do here.
easy , put in new spark plugs.
try doing the tuneups. in the glove box guide.
page 433 , at 102,000 miles. spark plugs and cables.
mine has only 60,000 miles, and they both were bad.
spark plugs and HV, wires so I upgraded to NGK mag wires.
and new NGK plugs.
if it still fails, then try a new coil pack.


HV= high voltage wire sets.

2000 ford taurus jerks at driving speeds, and stalls when i come to a stop can anyone give suggestions


If you run the OBD II codes,it'll give you an idea. I would suspect the usual offenders......old spark plugs,wiring,or coil pack problem.
An EGR can cause jerking and dying, but so can a vacuum leak,usually accompanied by rough idle before the engine dies.
I just did my sister-in-law's plugs,wiring, and coil pack in THAT order,because the code only showed `MISFIRE,cyl. #2.'
Even though the plugs and wiring were pretty worn,it turned out the coil pack had gone bad.
Also,how long since you replaced your fuel filter? don-ohio (:^)

cfor saturn due to poor piston ring seal. Goto a chevy dealer and tell them you need the stuff to clean the rings in your saturn they should know exactly what your talkin about. You pull all 4 plugs pour that in there and let it sit for atleast 24 hours. then turn engine over with alot of rags over the spark plug holes to catch most of chemicle and let sit for a bit to dry out. Put plugs in and go. that stuff eats the carbon buildup that causes the rings to seize up. Second white plugs in that motor ar again common as it runs pretty hot. If you put plugs in it and it runs good them no need for wires. and the rumor is correct. you have plugs, wires and a coil pack then under the coil pack is the ignition module. hope that helps ya

I would perform a compression test on all cylinders if you've already changed your plugs and wires. This willtell u if u have ay mechanical problems with the engine. Also even tho you've changed your spark plugs and wires did you check your injectors or coil packs to ensure they're good. A problem with either will also cause misfires.

Coil pack should in the front top of motor, with engine running remove one spark plug wire at a time from coil pack ( careful not to get shock ) they should all have spark, if one don't replace coil pack.

2000 chrysler concorde no spark on #2 cylinder


If it ran good prior to spark plug replacement, then yes, I'd be looking real close at the plug wire to that particular spark plug. Perhaps it pulled apart inside boot upon removal. It may even be an indication that they are all getting weak, and time to think about a new set if it's originals.
