    Are you talking about a coil or coil pack? 89 jeeps didn't have coil packs,They used a single coil and distributor,So if you don't have a distributor,then it's not an 89

I am working on a 1993toyota Corolla 1.8 no fire changed whole distributed assembly tested power coming to coil it's good still no spark checked all fuses there ok any sugestions

if the coil is tested fully and is good where have you checked for it being good? have you checked if the HT lead from the coil to the distributor is carrying power? If you have power at the distributor cap , all the contacts are good, the rotor is fine, (check current at the distributor cap centre pin) then the likely problem is the machanism for firing, i.e. Hall sensor . I would check all the HT leads, distributor cap, rotor etc. you should carry out the checks systematically. I.E. First check at the coil with a multi meter. Then check at the end of the Ht lead from coil to distributor , actually within the lead itself , for current. then attach it to distributor if it shows a current...if you are getting a current from the distributors centre pin the issue is probably the cap itself, the rotor arm, the firing system, it will probably be electronic as mechanical distributors went out some years before I think. or if that is okay, the leads themselves. I would guess that is is distributor cap or firing system related'

Why is there no spark on the plug?

Two things spring to mind Pamela.

Immobilizer? Are there any warning lights on the dashboard?

Coil pack faulty. Some vehicles have one coil and a distributor. Some have a coil pack with individual coils that are electronically fired. To test a coil, you disconnect the positive connection, and leave the ground connection. Attach a wire to the battery and touch the positive connection on the coil. When you RELEASE the positive wire, the coil should spark to the High Tension lead to the plug. You can put one of your old plugs on the end of the HT lead and hold it to a part of the car that is earthed/grounded.

I have a 2.3 93 lx not firing on all 8 plugs each coil pack is firing only two plugs per pack new wires plugs coil packs and computer

Take the Ignition Control Module and have it tested at Auto Zone or Oreillys. If it tests ok, buy a tube of dielectric grease and coat the back of the module and reinstall it. Sometimes that will take care of it. If it still isn't firing right, then it could be the Crankshaft Position Sensor. The new ICM would cost around $90. Not sure about the CPS. Myself, I would go ahead and replace the ICM, even though the old one tested positive. Good luck. I hope this helps.

Change the coil pack. Or have your ignition module tested. If all is good then maybe distributor.

No fire at distributor

The 1997 Chrysler Sebring 2.5L has a distributer with an intergrated coil. All other models have a distributerless ignition ("coil packs").

Start by testing the ASD (Automatic Shut Down) relay, then the CPS (Crankshaft Position Sensor) and CMH (Camshaft Position Sensor).

The CMH test the same way likethe CPS; the ASD is located on cowl, at left rear of engine compartment.

Hope helps.

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.

My 3.0 ranger cranks but will not start is not getting fire to plugs changed coil pack cps crank senser what else could it be

Sounds to me like a bad control module. The control module controls the order of which the coil pack fires. If that is bad you get no spark. Seems to me that it should have been your second option right after replacing the coil pack.
