    I have replaced the cam sensor ,crank sensor , coil pack, and checked timing belt, there is no power going up to the coil pack.

    Ok check the battery terminals and trace the wiring through the harness. Strange things like a sharp rock and what not can fly up and hit and damage or even seperate wires in weird places. check the obviuose areas. places where road debris have a straght shot to the wires. Also check the power to the crank sensor. Make sure the timming belt didn't jump a little. Some time it's diffucult to see. Turn it slowly and check for any damage I hope this helps. Maybe you'll solve this before to long Good Luck.

    Does this vehicle have a Mass Airflow Sensor (or equivalent)?. If everything else looks good, suspect that component.

I'll tell you what....I have a post on here with the same "fixes" that you have done and I am not going to guarantee, but, that MAP (Manifold Absolute Pressure sensor) won't fix anything....and will just be another new piece on the car. I have checked everything that I faults to be read, no check engine light, no popped fuses...even replaced and swapped relays. My suggestion, from SEVERAL web sites I have visited, is to MAYBE recheck the crankshaft position sensor. I know some of them, when purchased, come with a new pigtail assembly (plug/connector). I have seen this mentioned more than anything. Look for broken wires. Other than that, the only ohter thing I have seen is to have the brain checked out....if you can get it to a dealership. There are a few places that you can actually mail it to them and they can test it and do a diagnostic on it for $75.00.

Hope this helps some....cause it ain't done squat for me yet......BTW, the ECM runs up to $650.00 from the dealership!

What causes engine misfires to stay after new plugs and coil packs?

Try swapping the coil packs around - like swap #1 with #2, and swap #6 with #5, see if the misfires MOVE with the coil packs swapped to the new cylinders or if they stay with the cylinders. If they move with the coil packs, the new coil packs are bad. If they stay with the cylinders, there's a problem with those cylinders. You DID replace that camshaft sensor, right?

Have you checked your #1 and #6 injectors?

1994 mustang v6 started running real rough and is now almost dieing when I press the gas I have cleaned.

Many times the plugs and wires are cancelled out with the coil pak.
change all of them, you will be glad you did.
The ignition coil pack is a crucial part of your ignition system. It's function is to convert the 12 volt power of your vehicle's electrical system in to 35,000 or more volts. This produces a high intensity spark at the spark plug which then ignites the fuel in the cylinder. Coils in general will wear out over time and cause a misfire condition. In engines like this that use a coil pack, if one coil goes bad, the complete assembly needs to be replaced. PLEZE LET ME KNOW. there isn't anything else.

Ignition coil not sending fire to number 1 and number 4 on 2005 town and country

Sounds like it shorted out. Never worked on a mini-van. I try to avoid them. Does the coil pack plug into a tray, like on a late 90's cadillac? If so that tray needs to be cleaned or replaced. Make sure the terminals in that tray are not shorted across, meaning the power hole isn't touching the ground hole, with anything conductive.

Autozone says it's #4 not firing and to put some gas treatment in. and new plugs and wires. still misfiring.

Check ignition coil pack for spark, at ignition coil with engine running disconnect one spark plug wire at a time, they should all spark, if no spark out of any of the coil pack, replace coil pack.

After removing all of my coil packs to change my valve cover gasket on my 2002 envoy the bolt on # 1 coil pack broke off level with hole in the head. as a temporary fix i used a piece of flat steel between...

yes you need to buy a tap and die kit and drill out the bolt so can put new one in probably the rubber on the clamp is melting or the the pack itself is from the clamp

Maybe the fuel pump is going out have the fuel pressure checked. Or you have a defective coil pack. You should have taken it back to who ever put the coil pack on, right away when you first started having trouble.
