Question about 1995 Hyundai Elantra

1 Answer

1995 Elantra has no spark from plugs

I have replaced the coil pack and still nadda. I am about to buy a rebuilt or used Camshaft Sensor but would like to know if this is most likely the problem.

Everywhere I have read it seemed people have replaced both the coil pack and the camshaft sensor, but still will not get a spark. I just don't wanna spend more money on something that won't fix the issue.

Please Help!

    Yes its a DOHC. It does have a timing belt that seems to be fine.

    It was driving fine at about 40mph and suddenly gave out. Car then would not start. I have checked all fuses and seem to be fine. I have not checked to see if I can get a pulse yet, mainly because I do not know how.

A couple of Questions first. Over head cam? If over head does it have a belt? Have you checked fuses? You can check to see if you get a pulse at cam sensor. It will be in mill volts. You need to check power at coil and also going to cam sensor. Did it die quick or ? Check these then I'll get back.

2001 dodge stratus will the coil pack spark if the vavles are bent

if your valves are bent ,then i take it your timing belt has snapped .which means your camshaft can not turn ., so you can not get a spark at the plugs.if it was the old distributor you would have been able to check the coil with a spark plug tester the trouble is with a coil pack it is controlled by both sensors and your ECU but due to the camshaft not turning so your camshaft position sensor can not tell the ECU to fire the coil pack.

Far more likely than a defective camshaft position sensor: bad spark plug wires, fouled spark plugs, or a bad coil pack are the most probably culprits. Also, verify that you haven't developed any vacuum leaks anywhere.

Car is running really rough with code p0300 multiple cylinder misfire.. 2003 Chrysler sebring 3.0 just rebuilt engine...

A code P0300 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

  • Faulty spark plugs or wires
  • Faulty coil (pack)
  • Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
  • Faulty fuelicon1.png injector(s)
  • Burned exhaust valve
  • Faulty catalytic converter(s)
  • Stuck/blocked EGR valve / passages
  • Faulty camshaft position sensor

The spark gets power to spark from coil packs.If the connection between coil pack to spark plug is weak or loose then it will not fire.But if the coil pack as well as the connection between coil pack to spark plugs checked ok then its faulty or dirty spark plugs.Clean the spark plugs with the carb cleaner liquid and let it completely dry.Then check.Also check the voltage between coil pack to spark plugs.If both checked out ok then the other possibility can be weak crank shaft sensor. Thanks.Helpmech.

Misfire in two cylinders

Check to see if the two cylinders misfiring are on the same coil pack. If so, change the coil pack in question.

This happened to me on 1997 Cadillac Deville Limousine.

Also, check for a blown head gasket with compression test.

I have a 1996 Plymouth Grand Voyager SE with a 3.3 liter V6 Engine. It hasn't been firing on the 6th and 3rd spark plugs, and is only running off of 4 of them. I was told to replace the camshaft position...

The coil pack unit's circuit #3 drives plugs #3 and #6 directly from the PCM. If the cam sensor was defective, it should not fire any plugs. Suspect bad wiring from the PCM to the coil pack, the PCM unit itself, or a segment of the camshaft position sensor surface has lost magnetism causing missing signal to the PCM. An oscilloscope is the best test instrument for chasing down a missing pulse problem. The missing timing signal also explains why the PCM would report a 'bad camshaft sensor'. Hope this helps!

I need a engine diagram to replace camshaft sensor

there is actually no camshaft sensor,,,it will set a code P0341 camshaft performance code but there is NO cam sensor,,,,it means secondary ignition is the fault,,,,,like old and worn spark plugs and wires,coil packs corroded,ignition module high resistance,coolant temp sensor bad,crank sensor going bad,those are all the possible reasons for that code,if the plugs and wires are old replace them FIRST also when you remove the wires from the coils make sure there is NO corrosion on the towers,if there is you need a new coil pack,,,,DO NOT use platinum spark plugs,this will cause this code to set,these cars are VERY sensitive to this,,,use regualr plugs like ac delco or ngk but no platinum,,,,,clear code and see if resets

Check engine light

A multi misfire may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
Faulty spark plug or wires, Faulty coil (pack), Faulty oxygen sensor(s), Faulty fuel injector(s), Stuck/blocked EGR valve / passages, Faulty camshaft position sensor, Defective computer.

The engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wire, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the the problems were faulty fuel injectors. 

Random misfires that jump around from one cylinder to another (read: P030x codes) also will set a P0300 code. The underlying cause is often a lean fuel condition, which may be due to a vacuum leak in the intake manifold or unmetered air getting past the airflow sensor, or an EGR valve that is stuck open.

Good luck and hope this information helps, keep me posted, be glad to help you get the truck running 100% again. Not sure if your running a K&N air filter, and if you are there may be a flim of oil on the MAF sensor that is making you run lean. You may want to spray down the MAF sensor with a can of MAF cleaner.

No spark to the spark plugs just replaced the coil pack

Replace the spark plugs and cables also, but mainly the coil pack ignitor. Also check or replace the camshaft position sensor which is most likely the culprit.
