SOURCE: 93 honda civic ex sputtered and died while driving

Is there any white smoke coming out the exhaust? Sounds like the same problem my friend had when he warped his head on his 91 civic. Any overheating at all? Otherwise another guess would be maybe a bad catalitic converter that clogged up. Hope this helps any, good luck

SOURCE: replaced alternator, now car won't start

disconnecting the battery on an alternator is a no no. that was how they used to ck generators but an alternator can be damaged with no load in the circuit. Try changing out your MAF sensor. 1st sensor coming out of the air cleaner. good luck.

SOURCE: car spits and sputters and stalls after driving a while

sounds like a fuel pump problem,with fuel pumps u can have pressure but not enough volume,try goin up a steeper hill in 2nd gear and get about 3000 rpms on the engine and see if it really drops out bad and is really gutless,if that happens without a check engine light coming on it might be yur pump and u should also replace the fuel filter at the same time,hope this helps

Find a station that sells gas for small engines... it is non oxygenated (non E85) and try it again. These are usually the stations that sell only mid octaneg gas (like 89-90-91) and that is all they sell but a nickel cheaper than the low octane 87 at another station.

Their are less additives with it and it solves MANY car gas related problems. It;s a geat tip for those with old cars out there suffering from vaporlock, too.

Sometimes you can get carbon traces across the distributor or coil areas. A good wipe down with a good cleaning solvent can help this. IT's fairly common and in a newer car like yours I;d suspect something more superficial like this.

You are saying the engine cranks but does not start, right ?
Does it sound like it has compression ? If not could be a broken timing belt.

Coil pack diagrams 2000 ford taurus


Yes there is, or at least their should be. I just got my Taurus so I don't know the tips and tricks and pitfalls of Ford cars, but this is how I'd test my ignition coil on both my 86 Fiero GT, 87 Fiero GT, 96 Saturn SC2, and my 93 Geo Storm.

When my previous cars wouldn't start, one thing I'd do was to pull the wire that comes from the DistCap (DC) to the IgnCoil (IC). You'll want to leave the the DC side of the wire plugged to the DC and the other end just needs to be temporarily out of your way.

Ok, in a perfect world, when you try starting the car the (now exposed) IC post should energize and send an electrical charge down the wire you just unhooked to the DC's center post which charges each individual plug in order. With the wire off of the IC, when the car is being cranked, your IC is good if you see the IC Post start sparking (kind of a tesla or plasma ball effect). In summary, if you see sparks, the Ignition coil is good. In the previous example, if the coil showed that it could get and send spark, the next culprit was usually the Ignition Control Module, but that might not apply to your case. I did have 2 plug wires backwards once and it stuttered really bad until I went back and double-checked the firing order diagram for the DistCap-->SparkPlugWires-->SparkPlugs.

Hope it helps.

I think Advanced or Autozone will test ignition coils and Ignition Control Modules for free ().

1995 Saturn SC2 sputters


pull spark plugs check if any are excessively white or have a mineral deposit. This would indicate a head gasket problem. Also check the oil stick & cap for milky substance,also indicates head gasket. Another thing to check is pull the ignition coil off clean up the rust to get a better ground. Basic tune up changing the plugs & wires, filters ect may solve the sputtering.

93 Dodge Shadow 2.2l started having issue of running then dying, replaced fuel pump and filter. Car ran till warm up, shut it down to clean up for a test drive, stalled and now wont start, cranks but no...


I would look for spark, you may have an ignition problem. it would be a sensor that goes into your distributor, the plug should be a round one with i believe 4 wires.
