If the coil pack was bad, there would be no spark and it probably wouldn't start at all. Plugs and plug wires would be where I would start.

It will start then die if i hold the gas peddal down it will run for a min but it sputters really bad and backfires it has a new crankshaft sen dont know were to go next all this just started one day


sounds like your ignititon control module is going bad,this controls you spark and timing by a electronic brain.. THe location of your ignition control module is underneath the spark coil packs. if you follow your spark plug wires from your spark plug backward to the coil packs. if it is a 6 cylinder you will see 3 black coil packs with 2 wires attached to each coil. the coils are held in place by a few screw each,just make sure you mark each coil with tape so you do not get them mixed up when you take them off, I dont know what year your vehicle is but if it is more them 10-12 yrs old and has never been replaced,then i would replace it .I know because i have experienced these same kinds of problems with my general motor vehicles i have owned..

I have a 91 Chevy Lumina, just replaced the injectors and all the coils on saturday and ran fine but when driving it would have trouble it seemed shifting, starting today when you hit the gas the car dies...


Your ignition spark control module is going bad,your coils pack are located right underneth them. this is what tells your coils packs to produce spark to your spark plugs. they are easy to replace just make sure you mark you coil pack with some tape and make sure you put them back in the same order as they came off the spark control module. Easy to replace,just make sure you use the proper size torx or socket size on the screw heads...

2001 saturn dies after it starts.restart it and dies ,


A car that starts over but doesn't start and dies , in many cases this problem will be due to a bad fuel pump, a broken timing belt, an inoperative cam sensor or crank sensor. Also this problems are related to faulty spark plug. Check the spark at spark plugs when you start the car. Do you notice any spark. Actually you should see. If in case there is no spark then it's a spark plug problem. Also the coil pack gives power to spark plug. So check the voltage at coil pack. It will show 12 volt.If there is no voltage noticed at coil pack then its faulty coil pack that has to be replaced.If all the possible options checked out ok then check the car starter. The starter gets power from battery to start the care. If the starter is faulty then it will not let the car to start. Also check and confirm that there is fuel in the car. If it very low fuel then in some cases this causes the problem. Also check and confirm that fuel pump is functioning properly and the fuel filter is not clogged. One of the easiest ways to check for a fuel pump related problem is to spray a little starting fluid into the air intake while trying to start the car. If the car starts momentarily, then there's a good chance the fuel pump is not working or the car is out of gas. You can also listen for the fuel pump's humming sound when the key is first turned on. Also if a inoperative fuel pump is suspected, a good technician will always check to verify there is power and ground being supplied to the pump, to eliminate the possibility of a bad relay or electrical issue. Fuel pressure can be checked with a pressure gage and if there is pressure, pulse can be checked at the fuel injectors in several ways including the most common, with the use of noid lights. If the injectors don't have pulse the engine won't start. ---------- This troubleshooting tips will help you to solve the problem.Thanks.Helpmech.

Got the same make/model/year, but haven't had that problem. Does your temperature gauge run at half or above when this happens? If so, start with a cheap fix - new thermostat.

Another thing to consider is that some of the QR25DE engines equipped in the 02 Sentra SERs has an active recall on the crank position sensor. This fault would cause the check engine light to come on and the car would stall unexpectedly. It should start back up but the frequency of this will only increase without repair.

Also, no need to change plug wires, you have coil pack ignition - there is no distributor. If a coil pack is bad, you will have constant misfire and SES light.
