Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I replaced the ignition coil spark plugs wires and battery, on my 1993 Subaru loyale. Before it would just crank but no spark from the coil plugs distributor, it sat for 4-5 months. Now when I turn the key I get a clicking under the guages, no crank at all. It keeps blowing these two fuses, not sure what they go to the fuse box is aftermarket

This sounds like the previous owner fitted a security device to prevent thieft, the clicking is more than likely just a flat battery caused by the power drain from the suspect wires

SOURCE: 93 corolla 1.8 No start Blown ignition fuse

I had a prolem like this one time a while back. what i did was got the wiring diagram and checked everything that was running through that 30 amp fuse. on the one i was working on it ended up being an injector wire pinched under the valve cover and it didnt short out till the car was driven til it warmed up and expanded after the valve cover gasket was changed. hope this helps!

SOURCE: Blown coil fuse

IG fuse powers: daytime running lamps(DRL) module; transaxle control module; A/C amplifier; main, fuel pump, and radiator fan relays; alternator; heated oxygen sensor; ignition coil, ignition noise suppressor; sensing and diagnostic module(airbag); audio alarm module; and just about every gage and light in the instrument panel; so there are no usual suspects. The best you can do is try to rule out these components one by one. There is a breaker you can buy that plugs in the fuse hole, that way you can **** around with it without wasting three dozen fuses.

SOURCE: Car just stopped running. Lost power suddenly.

Find an inductive pickup indicator for spark. Place on distributor cap to see if spark is at coil internal tower. If no spark at internal tower, look at ignition module or pickup coil. Ignition modules are prone to failure on 626's. But if you have spark at tower but not at the wire end, then your rotor is gone.

92 subaru loyale new distributor and coil still no spark

Had the exact same problem and went through the whole dance. Traced problem to relay under the dash , combination ignition/fuel pump relay. The relay was "clicking" but was internally bad, it would not engage circuit for the ignition. Power was indicated at coil and fuel pump would run but the circuit was not complete through the computer to power the ignition sensor in the distributor. I actually had to "gang" 2- 12 vdc coil automotive relays to replace the original relay. Caution... if you decide to gang 2 relays be sure to separate the two circuits, one relay for ignition, one for fuel pump and tie the coil wires together.

I have a 1993 Subaru Loyale, front wheel drive (2-wheel). I pulled the engine, a 1.8L SOCH (according to CHILTON Manual) series 4 (if I remember correctly). I took a 1.8L series 5 from a 91 Loyale, 4-wheel...

I had a similar problem with a ford taurus, had good spark at the coil and sparkplugs, fuel pump, working, fine, computer fine not showing any codes, the problem was the timing, the timing belt went out, most timing gears will have a dot, an x or some other symbol, this works for all cars to set the cams to top dead center, remove the number one sparkplug and either bump the motor or turn the crankshaft pulley until the number one piston rises to the highest point, I usuall insert a long clear fuel line that I can make marks on it so that I can check the highest point, when the number one cylinder is at its highest point, the cams will be at top dead center,even if no marks are shown. if you turn the crank by hand, make sure one side of the battery is disconnected and your car or truck is in neutral with wheels blocked. good luck!

I have a 19992 Subaru Brumby which loses ignition spark

its quite possibly the crank angle sensor as they do this when they heat up,the car wont start,till it cools down,you can get the resistance checked on it to see if its ok,but you will need someone with experience to do it but its not a hard job

92 subaru legacy. Installed new water pump, now car won't start.

No spark on #1 spark plug wire? What about the others? Check it right at the coil to eliminate a faulty plug wire.

The engine is cranking want start

check for fuel .? spray staring fluid into throtle body then crank if engine runs then stalls you have fuel related problem ( fuel pump) if no start you have ignition problem ( coil or distributor check for spark use a screw driver insert into spark plug wire at spark plug end hold about 1/4 away from gronded engine and crank engine see if spark jumps gap if no spark could be coil or crank sensor

Wont start w/ key

Have you checked your starter and battery ? Check that the battery is fully charged or jump the car with another one. If it cranks the engine and starts it is a bad battery and/or connections. Clean the cables.If it clicks only once, it is the starter. If it does not even move the motor. it is probably your ignition relay or the switch itself.

Starting problem

check the wiring for cracks, it could be that the coil is damaged and wont send a spark to the plugs.
unplug one of the spark plugs out put a rcrew driver in it close to the block or something metallic. put it down, have some one crank the vehicle " do not touch the cable if coil is alive you will see a spark coming out of it and will strike you "
if coil is alive then you have a plug problem. remove all plugs and replace them.
