2003 neon not firing


could be many things, why did you change the starter? was it cranking the engine? if so you didnt need to replace it. I suspect the ignition module or coil pack. BUT, is it turning over or nothing at all, if there is nothing at all I suspect the ignition wire {not battery wire} on the terminal on the starter., does the car have a security/anti theft system? See if you can get a code reader on it to give you an error code, then research the code, that may tell you something, tough one guys without seeing it. hope I was of some use. good luck.
ps, just for fun...check ALL your fuses.

I have a 97 Ford Explorer AWD 8 cylinder. Check engine light comes on and I get code p303. Vehicle bucks at times, uses lots of gas. Believe it may be 02 censor, spark plugs and wires tested ok. Any Idea


code says #3 cylinder misfire, check the coil pack for this cylinder to see if its got spark, bad o2 sensor will spit another code, its most likely the coil

Need the firing ordering


There are two different 2.0 liter engines for that year. One is a DOHC and the other is a SOHC. I have posted both for you and I hope since the coil pack is different in the picture you will be able to understand. I hope this helps you and good luck.

You check the right firing order?

1991 Ford Mustang 2.3 liter SOHC L4

1991 Ford Mustang 5.0 liter V-8 HO

Also, need check the PCM for someone short; sometimes this is the reason it wasn't sending a signal to the coil. You have constant power at the coil but the ground signal doesn't fluctuate from on to off while the engine is cranking. If the hall effects switch in the distributor is bad it won't tell the PCM when to fire the coil and the hall effect switch also operates the tachometer. So if this switch is bad the tach and the coil would not work.

Good luck.
