    Hi john sanchez, I want to help you with your problem, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? when I crank the car over there is no spark going to the plugs I put a new rotor cap and rotor and plug wires and plugs and still I'm not getting any fire to the plugs. I did wash the motor with a power washer at the car wash I let it set for 30 min. and it started up and I drove home and now it wont start

My guess, is you did NOT replace the wires 1by1.
and messed up the firing order. (engine size not posted)
or
you bought one of this china,no-name POS rotors that fit 3 ways?
or the cap is on backwards
or the wire terms(HV) not seated.

ill assume the dizzy was never unbolted.

never power wash an engine, you force water to places that never must be...
let it dry for a day or 2.

what does FIRE to plugs mean.
i used a grounded tests spark plug , at the end of each spark plug
and there is no spark.

i ask that, because some posters say that , but only mean
the cylinders are dead, and call it no fire.
takes spark, compression and injection and timing to fire.
4 things.

SOURCE: 1991 honda accord "no spark"

There is a relay mounted way up under the dash on the driver side. It is about 1"x1"x2" and it says Mitsuba on it. This is the PGMFI relay, sometimes called the main relay or fuel injection relay. It is very likely the problem. You can buy another one, or there was a bulletin on how to repair it. You need to take it out, pop the cover off, and resolder the cracked solder joints on the pc board that the relays are mounted on. Really not that hard if you have a little soldering experience. If not, just buy another one, about 50 bucks.cb28323.jpg

SOURCE: my 92 accord turns but have no spark

You need a new distributor, these are a common problem and available new at just about any auto parts store. There are three inductive pick-up coils, a module and coil inside this thing and they go bad. You could try changing the module first, but they are non returnable, if it doesn't fix it, you're stuck. If it does fix it, chances are, the pickup coils are on their way out soon.
I would just get the whole new unit, about a 100 bucks on Ebay, $185 at the store.

SOURCE: 92 Honda accord no spark to the plugs I've changed

Check all of your grounds: There is one in front of the transmission leading from the negative wiring from your battery. Another goes from your battery wiring to the inside of your fender area. 10mm bolt. There is another on your driver's side motor mount to the valve cover. Check all relative fuses too.

or...

Main Relay : Up above your gas pedal. Above your cruise control computer. It will be a gray box or a brown box about 3" square. TO DIAGNOSE: Try to tap it while you try to start it, you might need a helper. If this is it... Don't buy a new one, just pry the cover off of it and look close to find the broken solder connection. Heat the faulty pin until the solder puddles around it and your good to go. It's smaller than a human hair, look close and you'll see the loose connection.

SOURCE: 1996 Honda Accord Rough Idle Even After tune up

Perform a valve clearance inspection and adjust if necessary. Tight or sticking valves will cause a misfire or rough running concern. Note: Perform valve adjustment when the engine is stone cold. 4cyl: INT 0.26mm EXH: 0.30mm (V6 engine are hydraulic and no adjust necessary.) Also check for a sticking or stuck open EGR valve. For diagnostic purposes only: Remove the EGR valve. Place a business card over the EGR passage and bolt the EGR valve back on. This plugs the EGR ports and if the misfire goes away the EGR valve is partially stuck open and is defective.
Check for low fuel pressure. Check for low compression. Check cam timing. Check for a weak ignition coil. Also don't over look the possibility of worn or broken engine mounts which cause excessive engine movement and engine vibration. -hope this helps

Y is my 97 chevy only fires on the number one cylender


if you have fire on the number one cylinder,it means that the ignition coil is working so your problem can come from spark plug wire or cap and rotor . unplug the wire from ignition coil to distributor and check for fire you are suppose to have fire because you saying having fire on cylinder one. from there change cap of distributor and rotor plus a set a spark plug wire.

I guess you could have the ignition analyzed on an oscilloscope. Maybe a tech could see something then.
I always heard the only gap was the spark plug gap-the rotor has no gap-are you sure you got the correct rotor? And does it touch the top distributor cap coil wire tower?

Let us know. It is a mystery worthy of a solution.

Change my spark plugs and distrubutor cap and the 85 ranger want start


You may have got the spark plug wires out of sequence.
Reseat the coil wire going to the center of the distributor cap Check the spark plug wires at the distributor against the firing order as follows:
The spark plug firing order is 1 - 4 - 2 - 5 - 3 - 6 The distributor rotor turns CLOCKWISE The engine cylinders / spark plugs are numbered :
firewall 3 - 6 2 - 5 1 - 4 front

1. Double check the connections at BOTH ends of the wires- at the distributor and at the plug. 2. Make sure each spark plug boot has proper connection. 3. Double check the plugs to make sure that they are all gapped correctly and no contamination. 4. Hold each spark plug upright and make sure that the ceramic insulator near the tip isn't loose and sliding down and possibly covering the metal tip..(had this happen more than once) 5. Check for spark at each plug (be careful) 6. Open the distributor cap and double check all the exposed metal connectors are clean. 7. buy one extra plug and change out the suspect plug.

I had the same problem with my 85 cj7 this week, I relpaced the ignition control module, plugs, wires, cap, rotor and the the coil; still had no fire to plugs. the problem turned out to be my distributor, replaced it today and she fired right up. Most likely it was the pick up module in the distributor that went bad.

Plug number 5 misfiring


Put in a new spark plug set (might as well do all of them) and new spark plug wires. They're wear items and eventually have to be changed, so now's a good time. You might also change the cap and rotor - they're what trigger the plugs to fire. If they're corroded or worn down (which does happen) it will cause problems. I'd lean more toward the plug and wire though - if the cap and rotor are worn, I'd expect that all the cylinders would be firing funny.
