I have a misfiring problems with cylinders 1 and 6. Which ignition coil do i need to change?


Ignition coil one and six or course.The 3.7L uses separate ignition coils for each cylinder. The one-piece coil bolts directly to the cylinder head. Rubber boots seal the secondary terminal ends of the coils to the top of all 6 spark plugs. A separate electrical connector is used for each coil.
Because of coil design, spark plug cables (secondary cables) and a distributor are not used.
Two knock sensors (one for each cylinder bank) are used to help control spark knock.
The Auto Shutdown (ASD) relay provides battery voltage to each ignition coil.
The ignition system consists of:
² 6 Spark Plugs
² 6 Separate Ignition Coils
² 2 Knock Sensors
² Powertrain Control Module (PCM

Firing order mitsubishi 3.5


Mitsubishi Montero 3.5 V-6n24 valve

Looking from the front of engine to the rear on the passenger side 1-3-5
Looking from the front of the engine to the rear on the drivers side 2-4-6


The engine has coil over plug with coils only on the drivers side. The spark is shared via spark plug cables to the plugs on the passenger side. So If you are replacing the spark plug cables:

#2 cyl.coil drivers side shares spark with #5 passenger side-
#4 coil drivers side shares spark with #1 passenger side-
#6 coil drivers side shares spark with #3 cylinder passenger side.

Where are soark plugs


Vehicles: 2000 Kia Sportage 4-cylinder 2.0L MFI DOHC 1998-2002

They're hidden underneath the coil cover, which is partially obscured by the accelerator cable bracket, which is obstructed by the air intake.

They're accessed from the top of the engine.

If you don't have a compressed air line to blow dirt away from around the plugs before removing them, one may blow through a plastic drinking straw (while closing eyes), or use a can of compressed air (with a little red plastic straw) sold for use cleaning computer PC boards/keyboards.

Where the manual (below) says "carefully install the spark plug into the cylinder head", you may consider one or another of a couple of experienced mechanic's tricks (used to avoid cross-threading the plug thus damaging the head):
trick 1: start plug by putting plug onto the end of a piece of stiff-ish hose, and
start the threads by gently turning the end of the hose. Once plug has
safely started turning into its threads, switch to a spark plug socket.
trick 2: use the spark plug socket, but carefully start the plug by gently
turning the plug COUNTER-clockwise, until the plug drops a hair - at this
point you know you've found the start of the first thread. Then gently thread
the plug in clockwise.
--------------------------------------------------------------
Spark Plugs - Removal & Installation

WARNING
Do not attempt to remove spark plugs when the engine is hot.

(1) Disconnect the negative battery cable.
(2) Remove the air intake hose assembly.
(3) Remove the accelerator cable bracket.
(4) Remove the six bolts and coil cover from cylinder head cover.
(5) Remove the four bolts and the two coils from the cover.
(6) Disconnect the high tension leads from the spark plugs by twisting the boot and removing.
(7) Use compressed air to remove any dirt from around the spark plug hole.
(8) Make sure the spark plug socket fits squarely on the spark plug, and then remove.
--------------------------------------------
To install:

(1) Be sure the spark plug gap is set to 0.039-0.043 in. (0.98-1.09mm).
(2) Apply anti-seize compound or light lubricating oil (WD-40 or 3-in-1) to the spark plug threads.
(3) Carefully install the spark plug into the cylinder head and torque to 11-17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm).
(4) Reconnect high tension leads to the spark plugs.
(5) Install the two ignition coils and torque four mounting bolts to 14-19 ft. lbs. (26 Nm).
(6) Install the coil cover and secure with six bolts
(7) Install the accelerator cable bracket.
(8) Reconnect the air intake hose assembly
(9) Reconnect the negative battery cable.

Firing order. took the spark plug cables off and don`t know where they go back


First,look at the coils see if the towers are numbered.Each coil fires 2 cylinders!
look on intake manifold for fireing order display! The v6 engine fires from one bank across to the other in a straight line example,cylinders 1&2 3&4 and 5&6 at the rear of the engine or farthest right side. 1&2 left side faceing engine 3&4 in the middle. All you need to do is find cylinder # 1 hook up the # 1 wire to the # 1 coil tower to the # 1 plug or cylinder,follow the fireing order 123456,its simple if you cant see coil tower numbers look at another car with same engine that has distributor less ignition.The coil pack for the 4 cylinder gm has plug wire terminals or towers numbered as well.Only in a harder place to see like behind and underneath!

How to change spark plug where are they located at


Your spark plugs can be located in 2 different locations.
1 if your engine is sitting front to back of the vehicle your plugs will be located on the drivers side and the passengers side of the vehicle.
2 if your engine is set from one wheel well to the other than your spark plugs will be located on the front of the engine ( front towards the bumper/grill.) and next to the firewall.

4.6L, 5.4L & 6.8L Engines
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the coil on plugs as outlined under Ignition Coil in this section.

  3. Remove the spark plugs.
  4. Inspect the spark plugs
  5. Adjust the spark plug gap as necessary. Proper gap is 0.52–0.56 in. (1.32–1.42mm).

installation.
  1. Install the spark plugs and tighten them to 13 ft. lbs. (18 Nm) for 4.6L and 5.4L SOHC engines. For 5.4L DOHC and 6.8L engines, tighten the spark plugs to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).
  2. Install the coil on plugs.
  3. Connect the negative battery cable.

Changed the alternator ,now the car wont start .plz help.


Assuming that your battery is good and it can crank the starter motor, Check the ignition system of your car.(Spark plugs - see if spark well'; Ignition/spark plug cables - for insulation breaks; distributor cap/rotor; and finally the ignition coil). Also check the carburetor for the right air-fuel mixture)
By the way, check your spark plug cable sequence.. It must be placed 1-2-4-3 or 1-3-4-2 according to
to the cylinder/pistons starting from the front.

Change sparks plugs on 06 hyundai sonata v6


You didn't specify whether you have the (4) cylinder or the (6) cylinder engine..... I have a 2004 Hyundai Sonata 2.4L 4 cylinder and I just changed the spark plugs in it. I believe that the 2005 2.4L engine is the same. To locate and change the (4) spark plugs on a 2004 Hyundai 2.4L 4 cylinder engine: Remove the (4) 12mm bolts from the decorative plastic engine cover. Remove plastic cover from engine and place it off to the side out of your way. Standing in front of the car, the (4) spark plugs are located laterally (left to right) in the recessed area underneath where the plastic engine cover was removed. Note: This engine has (2) coils....They are located above spark plugs number (2) and (3) from left to right. Starting with the fist spark plug on the left: Remove the spark plug cable by pulling straight up on the insulated connector. Using a spark plug socket, remove the old spark plug and install a new one in it's place. To access the second spark plug from the left, remove the electrical connector and the spark plug cable wire from coil number (1) and then remove the (2) 12mm bolts that secure the coil to the engine. Spark plug number (2) is located directly under the coil. Lift the coil straight up removing the insulated connector from spark plug number (2). Using a spark plug socket, remove old spark and install a new one in it's place. Repeat same procedures for spark plugs number (3) and (4). Note: If you have the (6) cylinder engine, the front (3) sparks pluge are readilly accessible but in order to access the (3) rear spark plugs, you will have to remove the intake manifold

CHECKING IGNITION COILS
1. Measurement of the primary coil resistance. Measure the resistance between connector terminals 3 and 1 (the coils at the No. 1 and No. 4 cylinder sides) of the ignition coil, and between terminals 3 and 2 (the coils at the No. 2 and No. 3 cylinder sides).
54c280c.gif

2. Measurement of the secondary coil resistance. Measure the resistance between the high-voltage terminal for the No. 1 and No. 4 cylinders, and between the high-voltage terminals for the No. 2 and No. 3 cylinders. Be sure, when measuring the resistance of the secondary coil, to disconnect the connector of the ignition coil.959e0ec.gif

CHECKING SPARK PLUG CABLES 1. Check the cap and outer shell for cracks. 2. Measure the resistance Spark plug cable (SOHC)
Resistance should not be higher than 10,000Ω per foot of cable. If resistance is higher, replace the cable.
