My main suspect in this case would be the small coil wire.It runs from the ign key to the coil sending power when you turn the key:a quick test can be carried out remove the ign wire from the top of the coil get are replacement wire and connect it back to where you removed the old wire.taking the other end connect it to the positave side of the battery.start car; if this solves the problem replace old wire.hope this helps.adrian

Cylinder 1 and 4 not firing

have you checked for codes. you should have power and ground at the coil plug. note the computer is what grounds the circuit to fire the ignition coil. if you don`t have a ground then it could be a bad coil driver in the computer, which means you will have to have the computer replaced a possibly programed to the car.

Replaced coil pack on 2000 neon, still no fire on 1 and 4 plug...

The PCM - engine computer has drivers or transistors inside that control the coil's . Three wire's to the coil . One dark green with orange trace is power , should have B+ voltage . The black with gray trace is control side from PCM . for # 1 coil . Testing with a test light . Videos on youtube .

05 Ford Escape, coils #3 & #4 not firing. We've replaced the battery, spark plugs, alternator, coil packs, & pcm. Had pcm reflashed. Garage said it had to be coil packs, but just replaced coil packs 3

Check engine light on ? Code's ? What engine ? 2.3 l 4cylinder or 3.ol v-6 This vehicle has coil on plug ignition system , not coil packs ! a coil per cylinder . If new coils an still has no spark , has no B+ voltage to the coil or the PCM isn't controlling them . Without testing i'd only be guessing as to the problem .If the repair shop you had it to can only say it had to be the coils , I'd find another shop to take it to !

New parts can still be bad , check for cracks also check wires for white arc marks on each other or where they might contact a ground source .
