Re: i got this trouble code p1610 and it reads manfacurer...
P 1610 means you have a bad o2 sensor. since the sensor wasn't functioning properly it was telling your engine to run rich which caused alot of carbon build up on your spark plugs they spark but don't put out enough spark to ignite. replace your plugs with NGK platinum plugs. gap them to the correct size. and try again then get a new o2 sensor and that should fix the problem. write back and tell me how it works out!

What is year--make--model?
How long since a tune-up?
Any applicable trouble codes?
Where applicable, if it cranks good but won't start, have helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs, gasoline engine. If spark everywhere, use gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, check fuel injector pulse.
I give guys/gals the same info. I don't know how else to do it.
What is year--make--model and engine size?
How long since a tune-up? Are there any applicable trouble codes? With gasoline engine, if your saying no spark, have to check spark plug wires--spark plugs--ignition coil, primary voltage and ground for the ignition coil or coil pack.
Also, test with engine cranking, spark--proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse. If your missing all three have to check for rpm signal.
What is year--make--model? If it cranks good, but, won't start, have a helper crank it, while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, check for fuel injector pulse.
probabli your ignition coil as it has 4 outputs for the spark plug wires.
have you run ittrough a scaner and read trouble codes?
what did the old spark plugs looked like?too black means exess fuel ,too white its not sufficient
also is recommended to change fuel filter on a regular basis.
The 1st thing u need to do here is run a trouble code test on the engine control system, it is called an OBD 2 trouble code test, but based on the symptom it sounds like u either have a defective camshaft or crankshaft position sensor, these sensors signal the PCM (powertrain control module) when the cylinder should receive spark and when the injectors should fire, if the signal is erratic or just stops all kinds of weird things happen, erratic fuel injector pulse for sure, but as I 1st stated a trouble code test is needed to pin down the sensor, if no codes exist hen it is poss the PCM is defective.
it could be several things. i had a very similar problem with the same car you should first check to see if you are getting spark by pulling the spark plug wire off of the spark plug, stick a screwdriver in the end and cranking it while holding the it close to ground ( any where on the frame should be fine). if no spark then it is probably either a bad ignition switch or bad coil. if there is spark. take out one of the spark plugs and inspect it and the cylinder if the cylinder seems to have alot of gas in it and the spark plug has a lot of black soot on it it means your engine is running rich and that could be the fault of 1. your computer, 2. you have bad injectors 3. bad o2 sensor. check and tell me how it goes
