Check the coil pack and the crank sensor and the timing cause you could have a bad timing belt also go to your local library and there you can get pictures and diagrams showing you detailed instructions

1984 dodge van has power to the coil but not from the distributer, and it doesnt start. van ran fine until the positive post came off while driving down the road, it just died and hasnt fired back up...


Does the coil produce voltage? I know it has power to it, but is it throwing voltage? if so check the coil wire at the distributor. if power is reaching the distributor but not throwing spark from any plug wires, your problem is a bad rotor and or cap. Or bad wires.

No spark from coil pack


The most common reasons for them going out are not using dielectric grease properly when installing, and from washing your engine.

I believe this was a huge issue with Volkswagen vehicles

Starts fine, smell fuel, rough idle-missing.


have you tried testing your ignition coils, there's 3 of them in a pack, i've had to change a couple when my lumina euro was running badly.
the coils send the spark to the spark plugs, if you have a bad coil, the cylinder won't fire. which would explain the gasie smell. a bad coil will also contribute to loss of acceleration, power and a rough idle.
the coil are rather cheap, about $20cdn each. usually one is dead and the others are good.
to test if your coils are working, what you can do is...
- start your car - unplug one cable and replace it and listen for a change in sound in the engine. if there is a noticable change in sound then that cylinder is working. - if you unplug a cable and nothing happens, and plug it back in and nothing happens, that coil is dead. you will have to replace it (one coil powers two cylinders, each independantly. one cylinder on a coil may work while the other is dead).
*please remember to unplug and replace a cable one at a time. and while doing this don't touch the metal framing of your car, our you'll get a nice zapp.
this is a cheap and easy way to test you coil pack. my friend spent about $1000 and 3 mechanics and they never checked the coils. i did, and didn't cost him a thing.

1998 Buick Lesabre How do you test the coil packs?


the coils are one integrated block with 3 separate segments. the coil pack is mounted to the ignition module and can be unbolted from each other. one can test the coils from the underside of the coilpack with a dvom. having said that your car should still start if one paired coil fails, it would however miss on one or two cylinders. I would suggest to scan for codes, monitor live sensor data to see if you have a valid crank signal, check fuel pressure and spark voltage
