After spending 900 dollars today doing the valve adjustments and new spark plugs including changing #1 Direct Ignition Coil I drove off and the engine service light came on including the VSA light and Exclamation for the airbag also came on. Took it back to the mechanic, he commenced to put his code Machine on the car, faulty code for anti knock came up! Bring it back tomorrow! Oh Dear.

Cold just be a ground wire not put back on and the sensors aren't able to check in with the ECU. Check those and make sure all harnesses are connected and tight. Doubt the sensor is bad if it was working fine before you had adjustment done

SOURCE: 99 TL engine roars and shakes when pressing on gas.

a flashing chack engine light means you have a catalyst damaging misfire the tcs light comes on because this system will not function with certain codes stored for the engine or trans. knowing that you have a misfire you very well could have a bent valve the question is why. have someone check the engine timing incase the timing belt tensioner has failed. i have seen this happen on the 3.2 before or a burnt exhaust valve . as far as the distributor goes the 99 tl does not have one it has cop (coil on plug ignition) . this means you have a seperate coil on top of every plug one of these could have failed check the code to see if the problem is isolated to 1 cylinder rhen start looking at that one and you better hurry that light flashing means you will damage the catalitic converter if the car continues to skip good luck and i hope this helps you.

SOURCE: VSA CHECK ENG LIGHT COMES ON

Take your vehicle to a parts store and have them run a diagnostic on it. It will tell you what code came up and that will give you a good start.

SYMPTOM
The MIL is on, and DTC P1457 [leak detected in EVAP
control system (EVAP control canister system)] is set.
PROBABLE CAUSE
The EVAP bypass solenoid valve can fail due to
corrosion. Replace the bypass solenoid valve first. Clear DTC's and test drive.

My van won't start after driving a short distance, it will start again after 3 to 5 minutes but then will act like it's going to stall while I'm driving. What's wrong?


Hi Greg, I'm AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair in St Charles Mo

Greg, I read your complete message, but nowhere did I see that you replaced the Cam Sensor. The EGR will cause it to stall at stops but usually will not prevent it from restarting. I would try replacing the Cam Sensor before anything else. If you should need further assistance go to my website by clicking here: Auto Repair

I'm only getting spark out of one of the coil packs and the car turns over put won't start, please help me. Thank you


Try switching the ignition coil with the other coil and plug it in and check for spark again. If it works in the other coil location, then you need an ignition coil. Your engine is bad for valve cover gasket leaks which deteriorate the spark plug wires, so if you are going to put in plugs and wires with the new coil, I would recommend replacing the valve cover gasket and spark plug tube seals(included with the valve cover gasket set).

2008 CHARGER MISFIRE IN #2 IGNITION COIL


the valve cover is leaking oil in to the sparkplug area and getting the coil to plug boot wet and causing the spark jump.

Ignition coil installation


It doesn't have a coil. It has a bank of 3 coils with direct contact to the plugs.
Remove the cover on each side which is on top of the valve covers. This will expose the coil packs.

Extended starting time


Sounds like an ignition problem..
The Direct Ignition module in the turbo model can fail but is easily tested and replaced.

Remove turn the , Direct Ignition module put the spark plugs in the holes, ground each plug to the negative battery terminal by use of a wire about 2 feet long and stripped at each plug. Crank over the engine over watching the spark plugs. If there is a problem with the cassette, one of the plugs will have no spark or a very weak spark. Also, when you turn the ignition key off there should be a shower of sparks that runs all of the plugs simultaneously several times.
DANGER BE CAREFUL ! ! ! EXTREMELY HIGH VOLTAGE! There have been occasions when the Direct Ignition module would test ok when turned upside down but would fail when turned back over to install into the valve cover ?
Also: Oil leakage from the individual coils of the Direct Ignition module have also been a problem. Oil leaks can be identified by noting that there is oil surrounding spark plug hole.
Hope this helps.
Cheers MMP
