You need new coil then cuz the one there sounds like its cracked or could be a bad wire depending where the sparks are coming from

It turns but it wont start,it has gas and power


Pull off the coil ignition cable at the distributor and check for spark coming out of coil when cranking engine over. Use a heavy rag or glove to hold the wire 1/4 inch from a metal ground. Should see a strong blue spark when cranking to verify ignition is good. If no spark, check for battery voltage to coil on the coil primary. If you have current to the coil, suspect a bad coil, ignition module, crank position sensor, or cam position sensor, or pcm. The coil, ignition module, and sensors can be tested before replacing.

The car is a 1999 plymouth neon the spark coming out of the plug is weak and yellow engine will turn over but wont start it is getting enough fuel and replaced the plugs


check the spark output at the coil. If there is still weak spark than make sure there is 12 volts to the coil. If there is than the coil is probably bad.

Also make sure the engine is turning over properly. If the battery is low or the starter is drawing to many amps than there may not be enough power left over to deliver enough spark from the coil.

2000 blazer wont start


If you don'nt have spark check for power from coil.If theirs no spark coming out of the coil then replace coil.Just pull the coil wire off the distributor side and ground it against metal and have someone else crank it over while you watch for spark.Be careful don't hold wire by hand you will get shocked.

I have a 1995 dodge van which wont start due to no spark I have tested right at the coils sec. I do have injector pulse but no pulse at ign coils primary there is power at primary of coil at first we...


A test light connected across the coil primary leads should flash on + off when engine cranks(coil sparks when 12v turned OFF due to collapse of magnetic field).If you get pulsed 12 volts,and no spark from the coil,the coil is bad.If you don't get the pulsed 12 volts,trace back to find out why(the PCM turns the coil ground on and off,12 volts comes from switched IGN source)
