If you have replace both spark plug and wires and you are having a multiple misfire after, most likely you have a bad coil/ coil pack.

Change ignition coilon clylinder 1 in 2009 Toyota corolla? got the code P0351


First of all, even though the Issue says Coil Pack, that does not necessarily mean the Coil Pack is Bad. It could be a Loose Connection, it could be a Bad Wire, it can also mean a Bad Spark Plug or fouled Injector but to answer your question...

The Coil Pack is located under the Plastic on top of your Engine and Directly connects to the Spark Plug. If I was you I would Swap the #1 and #3 Coil Packs and see if the Fault Code follows the Coil Pack. If it does then replace the Coil Pack. If it stays with the Cylinder, I would be checking the Connectors, Wires, Injector and Spark Plug.

Why does the coil pack keep goin bad on my 2004 dodge neon?


How do you know the coil pack is bad ? Did you test it , or are you going just by the P0302 - P0300 ? These codes do not mean the coil pack is bad ! Could have a vacuum leak , could have weak fuel pump , partially plugged fuel filter ! The engine could have a mechanical fault , burnt valve , bent valve , bad head gasket ! Sounds like you need stop wasting your money an take it to a pro !

Coil pack


Generally speaking the coil will not fire the plugs.
If you have the 2.2 engine, we usually swap the coils to see if it is a coil problem or the ignition module.

1993 eagle talon es with 2.0 dohc engine and 5 speed manual transmission there are only 2 cylinders working 1 and 4 are good but 2 and 3 dont work wht can i do


So i think you have 2 ignition coil packs on your car, each one connects to 2 cylinders.
But i dont know what cylinders each one controls, but the coil connected to cylinders
2 and 3 may have gone bad. Thats where i would start. If you check and find out that
one coil pack connects to cylinders 2 and 3, remove the coil packs and switch their positions.

Reconnect the wires and see if then cylinders 2 and 3 work, and 1 and 4 dont. That would tell
you whether that coil pack is bad. Thats seems most likely to me.

I dont have any spark. have power to the coil pack just nothing past that. what to do??


Check the crank shaft postioning sensor. If you are getting power to the coil pack and there is no power coming out of the coil pack the coil pack might be bad or have corrioson between the coil pack and the mount. Thanks

Number one cyl on coil pack not firing, all others are, codes reads misfire on 1 cyl should i replace the coil pack and how do you test the pack


Check the spark plug first. then if the plug is good you wil need a digital ohm meter to test the coil pack. if you need to know how to remove the coil pack let me know, to test put on ohms should not have more than 2 1/2 ohms restance betweent coil lead to coil connector. If you test the coil pack on both sides of the pack and get a reading then the coil is bad, if it does not read then you haave a bad fireing plate diode.

1998 Buick Lesabre How do you test the coil packs?


the coils are one integrated block with 3 separate segments. the coil pack is mounted to the ignition module and can be unbolted from each other. one can test the coils from the underside of the coilpack with a dvom. having said that your car should still start if one paired coil fails, it would however miss on one or two cylinders. I would suggest to scan for codes, monitor live sensor data to see if you have a valid crank signal, check fuel pressure and spark voltage
