Since both one and 4 are fired using the same coilpack if the location of the coilpack is easy to get to you can swap it with the 3/2 coil pack and see if the miss moves to 3/2 thus eliminating the ignition module and related circuits and confirming the coil is faulty

White smoke cylinder misfire and smell of gas on my Volvo 2002 v70xc


4 cylinder? Blown head gasket. 6 cylinder, look to the throttle body. It has coolant lines on it, it can and will corrode though the throttle throwing coolant in the intake. 1 And 2 are the first to misfire. But usually have multiple misfires.

Running on two cylinders


The removal of # 3 & # 4 tells you those cylinders are
contributing the most ,as removing the wire causes the motor
to stop
My guess is that the other cyl #1 & #2 are not firing at all, if there
is no change

If you had a V6 or V8 it would continue to run,not so with only
4 cylinder

Learn or study the ignition system & replace any ignition control
module that fires the first two cylinders

Get an HEI Test Spark Plug & put the plug wire to that & ground it
& see if you get spark,check all the plug wires one at a time.

Don't forget timing belts that are worn & slip,battery voltage,alternator output & A/C Ripple coming out of it

I would check compression or better yet, do a cylinder leak down test.
Could be you have worn valves in #1 & #2 thus little spark
Check fuel pressure at motor with a gauge

Plugs 1 & 4 no fire?


V-6 I ASSUME? MORE THAN LIKELY, 3 COIL PACKS CONTROL 2 CYLINDERS EACH. MAKE SURE YOU ARE GETTING A SPARK FROM THE ONE THAT CONTROLS 1 &4...OR ALL WIRING IS INTAVT
** IF THIS IS A 4 CYL. SAME THING...LESS COIL PACKS IE: ONE COIL PACK FOR 174 AND ONE FOR 2 & 3

2002 ford focus zts no spark at cylinders 2 and 3 battery voltage at electric connector coil towers ohm at 10.6 and 10.6 at connector 0.08 and0.08 but no spark out of coil


Swap coils over ie: put 2 / 3 coil where 1 / 4 coil go and viser versa. If your no spark moves from 2 & 3 to 1 & 4 you have a faulty coil which is what I think yur problem will be.

Replace spark plugs in 1997 4 cyl. ford ranger


Hello, I will suggest you get these few tools before you with the replacement.
(1) Spark plug socket with rubber insert to hold plugs in place while inserting & removing.(2) 6inch extensions for your 3/8ths inch socket wrench,(1) Swivle Socket extension for your 3/8ths inch socket wrench.(1) 1/2inch socket for exhaust manifold screws. A little quantity of anti-sieze for the spark pluggs to be applied to the pluggs if they are proving difficult to get out.
Start with the 1st cylinder at the front of the engine on the passanger side.
STEP 1.
Twist & remove the spark plug boot from the existing plug.
STEP 2.
You have to use a very small flat edged screwdriver to open the clips that hold the plug wires together.
STEP 3.
Use a 6" extension & a 3" extension & your deep socket for the spark plug.
STEP 4.
Remove the first plug and replace the old plug with a new Bosch Platinum Plus 2 prong plug and use some anti-seize on the threads and tighten to the appropriate torque.
STEP 5.
Remove the old plug wire from the coil pack. It will be going to the 2nd coil pack (located to the rear of the first coil pack) and install the new plug wire in the coil pack.
STEP 6
Repeat steps 1-7 for plugs on 2 & 3.
STEP 7.
To remove Plug #4 which is the last plug on the passanger side,you have to remove the two (2) 1/2inch bolts that holds a bracket to the exhaust manifold. Make sure you spray the studs these bolts are on with some DW-40 or liquid wrench. The exhaust manifold studs might have a lot of rust & being difficult to turn nuts off without shearing off the stud. It has some sort of aluminum box ontop of this bracket with some sensor wires coming out of it, Slip the bracket off and simply lay it to the rear of the engine to provide better access to this last cylinder.

STEP 8.
Repeat steps 1-7 for plug #4 and then Remount bracket containing the aluminum box with sensor wires.

Upon completion of the passenger side,you now have to proceed to the driver side.
STEP 1. The first cylinder at the front of the engine the spark plug wire has a grey handle sticking up next to the A/C compressor. Using some pliers (needle nose plier) twist & pull this grey handle. The spark plug boot should pop out.

STEP 2.
With the help of the small flat edged screw driver, unhook the spark plug wire clips that hold the wires together. There are 3 - One just after the 1st coil pack located at the front of the engine, another just on the other side of the valve cover and a small 2 clip located about 1/2 way back on the valve cover under the intake manifold.
STEP 3.
Remove the spark plug wire from Cylinder #1 on the Drivers side
STEP 4.With the help of the small flat edged screw driver,press the 4 connection points on the grey handle that is attached to the wire,it will separate down the middle and allow you to remove the wire, Replace the wire with the new wire,you have to ensure you line up the rubber round plugs with the round holes in this grey handle & snap it back together with the new wire in place.

STEP 5.
Hold the spark plug socket in your left hand down near the plug,feed a 6" inch extension below the A/C Compressor line (black pipe) and the A/C Compressor with your right hand and attach the spark plug socket into the extension.
STEP 6.Slip the socket onto the plug,afterwards,attach an additional 3 or 6 inch extension to the existing extension & attach your socket wrench.
STEP 7.Remove the plug & proceed to replace it with a Bosch Platinum plug & anti-seize on the threads. Feed the new Spark Plug wire over to the 1st coil pack & replace it on the coil pack.

There is only spark on cylinder 1 & 4


Swap your sparkplug cables #1 with #2 and #3 with #4.
If #2 & 3 still don't spark, then replace the electronic ignition module.

If 2 & 3 spark, then replace sparkplugs and/or wires.

No spark on no. 1 & 4 cylinders


Bad coil...you didn't list your motor size so it is either ignition module or coil.
