SOURCE: 1999 Lincoln continential will not start

I would first,change the spark plugs only if they were in the motor,say three years and 50,000. Not just to fix a misfire
Second you can only change a COP Coil, if you have a code or a way of knowing which one is bad. Again,why would you change all of them, when they all now work?
Crank Sensors rarely fail,so what test did you do to determine that was necessary? would you know ,you had a missing coil, if you had no crank signal?
Now lets go from where you are now
Did you check fuel pressure,key-on ,eng off,with a pressure gauge?
Fuel filter fairly new?
Do you have all the ducting from the air cleaner to throttle body on and no vacuum leaks?
Do you have the MAF sensor connected. No signal,no start!!

Let me know what help you need

SOURCE: coil packs keep going bad when it rains

When they dry out, seal them with silicon... or some other like product.

Wrong diagnoses

You will only have (1) bad COP Ignition Coil, at the most

The Spark Plugs are not an issue at all ,unless they are in the
motor over 60,000 miles or more than 3 years,& not the cause
of the misfires.

You can replace a coil yourself in 15 min
They cost $59.00 tops at the auto parts store

On a V8
Wells 5C1179
Wells (duralast/autozone) C1234 Both the same coil
On a V6 you can look on Wells web site or a lot of
internet sites

If you have a V6 & most L/S probably are & you have
to do the right side of the motor,then the upper intake has
to come off ,to do coils or plugs

I own a 2004 LS & wouldn't let anyone touch it

Very few people are good with L/S Misfires or most Fords
Some shops avoid them

There are several ways to look for misfires
You have to have scan tool software & know how
to use $ Mode 6 & have & use an oscilloscope
All testing has to be done on a road test with the
test equipment on the coils
Doubtfull many repair shops even know what I'm
referring to.

You can solve any coil issue yourself ,if you buy one
coil only & put it in a cyl with a misfire code
PO 301 thru PO306 or 8

If you don't get the bad coil, replace the old one &
continue to walk the new one

There are some real serious issues you will someday
face & you will need my help, as a dealer can't figure out

You have to use logic,& get your head around how these
systems work & loose the ford product additude & things go
as they would on any vehicle brand.

Don't even go near a dealer,waste of time & huge amounts
of money
Do it my way
Get involved & install a coil & go from there

Mitsubishi endeavor 2004 coil pack burnt out changed and turns over but no start spark plugs wet from fuel but not starting

There are so many possibilities, fuse, command module, crank signal? Is the module getting 12 volts. It is rarely a whole ignition coil pack goes out unless of a short. Was the unit burned up? If not, it could have a bad crank position signal. The cam sensor is mainly for fuel and crank sensor is mainly for spark.

Melted coil pack.

which engine? 4L or 4.7L?????
the pack shorted,
buy a new pack,
and pray it didnt burn up the PCM.
ALL high voltage coils fail.
Ignition, induction coils.
by dirt, heat, and the fact there is the giant
E fails (electrostat fields)
all three work hard to kill insulation and plastic potted coil packs.
also bad spark plugs can make this happen faster
as the voltage hits 100,000 volts in a misfire.
the heat and time can crack most plastics.
cracks are sure DOOM thing.

the coil can also burn up if the ecu ignitor transistor shorts. causing gross infinite dwell
that burns up all coil packs .
i always check my ignitor for shorts before
putting in any new expensive coil.
if you dont, you risk burning up the new coil in less than 5 mins.
some swap packs and now you have 2 burned
fun to watch that? not.
what i do is crank engine and measure my ignitor pulse. (with no pack there) if good
a new pack works. if no pulses the ignitor is bad.
(where is your ignitor)? INSIDE THE PCM. this year.

swap it out.
why not just read the free FSm, as posted here over 200 times
2000 WJ jeep it is, and the book , see chapter spark.
and error on this page, see instrument cluster and get igntiion
grin, not my error.? grin
chapter 8i -page 10 (8,eye)

4.0L and 4.7L sorry cant guess engines this life.

the 4L has huge 6 pack coil RAIL that?
athe 4.7L has, uses 8 COP got that?

my wild guess, based on tea leaves and dosing rods.
is V8
page 10 covers it

usually the left side goes bad, carbon tracking
most COP i just buy a new cop boot set for small money.
why not youtube 1000 replacing a COP.
you never posted a photo of the melt,
as when i see real damage it talks to me big time.
if the actual coil section melts, bad news

as you can see, it's just 1 screw at id 2.
and one plug at id 3... super simple, to remove
twist CCW, CW, CCW ,say 2 or three time,
the pull out while TWISTING.. to avoid damage.
the put back with dielectric silicon grease on tip
and where body fits tight to head well bore

Number 1 cellender is running to ritch and miss fire ,how do I fix it , how to fix it

Pull the plug in cylinder #1 and inspect it for corrosion, burnt or rich with gas. If corrosion or burnt replace plugs if wet with gas and the plug is in good condition replace distributor cap and rotor, if this model has coil packs replace the coil pack that covers cylinder #1 it may also cover another cylinder as we'll some of the earlier models had two cylinders per coil. Hope this helps

2002 v6 chevy silveraldo keeps burning coil packs quickly please help

coil packs and coils burn out from over voltage supplied to them --Ie 12 volts to a 7.5 volt coil. I would check the voltage in the supply wire connections and check the required voltage from the cpu /ECM. Run fault codes and look for a short to ground situation

Turns over good good fuel pressure but no fire

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

If you have no firing issue, this can be caused by a faulty coil pack. If the coil pack is burnt, there will be no current supply to the spark plugs. One good reason why you are not burning fuel.

The coil pack is located inside the engine. Remove the cap where the plug wires are connected. Once you removed the cap you can gain access to the coil pack. Remember, removing the coil pack can be messy for it is connected to the engine. Have it replaced and you'll be good.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!
