I have a 95 eclipse and had the same problem. Replaced the coil, plugs, wires. I had it taken to 3 garages before I found out. It's a problem with the anti-theft system. I don't have the exact location, but the guy who finally found out the problem said it was under the front bumper. Sorry I can't be more specific, but I know how puzzling the problem is. I spent a good 700 dollars and 4 months on two "I don't know"s and a little under $200 to actually get it fixed.

No fire comes from crank sensor and cam sensors but their are 2 sometimes 3 sensors hooked on the firewall right above the battery change those they also will keep one from starting.

Hello, Watch you tac while your tring to start the car. If the needle doesn't move you probably need to change your crankshaft position sensor.

Why no spark


There should be three coils mounted on the ignition module.
Each coil fires two plugs, one positive and one negative.
If one of the three coils is dead, it could be the coil. If every other plug is not firing, it could be the module.

I have a 2002 ford taurus SE, coil pack has been replaced because Advanced Auto ran a diagnostic and said my coil pack was bad. Well its not and im still not getting fire on #3 and #4 spark plugs. changed...


You visually checked for spark and there was none? #3 and #4 show to be on same coil, each coil fires two plugs. Battery has a full charge? The red wire at coil pack is voltage, it has good voltage? Any applicable trouble codes?
The yellow wires with different tracer colors are grounds controlled by the pcm, one ground for each coil. Did you check voltage on ground wire engine cranking? I can't rule out a faulty coil driver in pcm. It's possible your old coil pack damaged the coil driver in pcm? If that is the problem, hope it didn't hurt the new coil pack.

I have a sebring 2004 v6 2.7 which is misfiring. put it a new coil and changed plug on cylinder that doesnt fire still no spark. im getting power all th way to the plug tested with volt meter.it reads 14...


Invalid test. When plug fires, the wire shoots around 40,000volts. When not firing, there is no current in the wire.
Try switching the misfiring plug wire with another that is firing. Switch them both at the plug and at the coil tower. If that was a bad plug wire, the misfire will now be on the cylinder where you put the suspect wire. This will confirm a bad plugwire.
Good luck.

Engine miss firing installed new plugs still miss fires


You may get one bad spark plug in 50 years of driving

Does that answer your question?

You did not diagnose your problem, which
was a misfire.

Do you have codes PO301 thru PO306?

Ignition Coils cause misfires

Have to know the system your working on

Im not getting fire on my 2001 jeep cherokee. coil rail is good and the cam position sensor is new and still no fire. im getting fuel but i think there is no fire. any idea as to what im overlooking? jeep...


If no spark at the plugs, engine cranking, did you check primary voltage at the coil assemble, dark green wire with orange tracer, engine cranking, use a test lite on the wire check for voltage. If no voltage that will lead back to asd relay. There are some fuses involved. I believe the computer has to see both the cam and crank sensor signals or it won't ground the asd relay. All I can do is make testing suggesting.

You are mis fireing on cyl 1 and 3 if you replaced plugs and wires and coil this is going to be a fuel injector issue or valve issue. See if you can swap the injectors with known good cyl. and see if it changes. Or have a shop do a fuel injector service on it to see if it helps. It may be to late for the fuel injector service.
