Hello, this could be your ignition module. This also could be a faulty ECU, crank sensor, ECS computer or TPS sensor. AutoZone can run a free diagnostic on your car to pinpoint your problem for you and I hope this fixes your problem!

SOURCE: 1998 dodge Neon no fire to coil

it sound like you have a bad crank sensor when the sensor gets hot it open circuits inside the sensor and you loose spark if you have access to a noid light see if you are loosing injector pulse also if so then you know its a good chance its the crank sensor

#1 and #4 are not firing I changed the coil pack and still no change any ideas


You said you changed the coil pack and the wires but didn't mention the plugs. Try moving one of the plugs to a different cylinder and see if the miss follows it. It could also be the ignition module. (the thing the coil packs mount to.)

Have fire to coil pack, but no fire coming from it


It sounds like a bad ground. The coils are grounded through the Ignition Control Module and yours may be defective. The replacement of an ICM takes about fifteen minutes and you can do-it-yourself.

Does coil pack in cylinder four fire plug in cylinder one


no, if you have a coil pack, and one cylinder is not firing then you will need to relace coil pack, if you have individual coils (coil over plug) the you can just replace the coil associated with that cylinder.

2001 pontiac cowl pack not fireing.


Here is a diagram of the firing order for you 3800 engine. Cylinders 1 and 4 are misfiring because the operate under the same "Coil Pack" and the coil pack has unfortunately gone bad. O'Reilly sells them for between $30-50 depending on the amount of warranty coverage you want. To replace, simply unscrew the screws that hold the coil pack in place. WAIT before unplugging the plug wires. Place the old coil pack and new coil pack next to each other, unplug one plug wire, then plug it to that same port on the new coil pack. then do the same for the other plug wire. Then screw your new coil pack in place, and start you car. should run fine!
