SOURCE: Is the coil pack what the spark plug wires go into

Yes....one end of the plug goes to the spark plug in the head and the other end plugs into the coil pack.

SOURCE: replace blown headlamp bulbs mx5

Raise the hood. Look to the back of the lamp assembly-there will be either a plastic cap or a rubberlike dust cover that the wires run thru for the lights. If you have the cap turn it 1/4 turn counterclockwise and pull back. You should be able to take the bulb socket out and change the bulbs. DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS PART OF THE NEW BULB. Skin oils can cause it to fail. Reinstall. If you have the dust cap you may have a clip that holds the bulb in that looks like a bent paperclip. This is SUPPOSED to squeeze and release so you can remove the bulb. Replace.

I have a 98 vw jetta gl ABA and it wont start run.


I would check for spark on the ignition coil and the spark plug. If no spark, check the power and signal to the ignition coil. The ignition coil large wires are 12volts power and the other three is a signal to electronic firing circuit from ECM. Testing the power is easy, for testing for trigger signal, use a 12v LED test light.

1998 Ford Explorer, 4.0 SOHC No Spark. Engine will crank but it won't start. Replaced the Crankshaft Sensor, Coil Pack, & Spark Plugs. Still no spark. What next?


You are at thhe right trail what controls spark is coil pack crank sensor sparkplugs and plug wire but the most important is power . I mean 12 volt connections and ground This includes checking fuses you need a simple volt meter doesnt have to expensive or fancy just to pick up 12 volts let start with fuses in the engine juction box (there not mark to what it belongs to) make sure none are open. especially fuse 19 and 24 , next go to the crank sensor make sure the tabs are snuggly on now to the coil pack there is a red and light green wire this comes from ignition and feeds 12 volts at the coil pack measure that voltage is it 12 volts if not correct it this is from ignition switch ( you can make a tool that feed 12 volt with a wire and a fuse in series and attatch it to battery and the primary wire this is known as hot wire) next go to the ECM wiggle the wires see if that get a connection going if not go back to the ICM here are the wire you are to measure the tan light green, this is from ECM and it is pulsed it measure 5vlts to 0 volts switched then measure the tan orange the same thing 5 volts to zero,then tan white again 5vlts to zero. any one of these 5 to zero fails you fix is the ecm

I was driving and it just died,we now found we do not have any spark on driver side,can you tell me what it may be,or what we should try to fit it.it will not turn over.Thank you sherry


No spark.This is indication of faulty spark plugs.But spark plugs get power to spark from coil pack. So get the connection between coil pack to spark plugs checked.If it checked out ok then its faulty spark plugs that has to be replaced,but if coil pack has no power then its faulty coil pack that has to be replaced.But if coil pack and spark plugs both checked out ok then this problem is fuel related problem.In this case the fuel pressure needs to be checked.The fuel pressure can be easily checked at any local car garage.If its low then its faulty fuel pump as well as clogged fuel filter,which has to be replaced. The voltage for spark plugs and coil pack in voltmeter will show 12 volts.Its a 12 volt part.If there is no or low volt then there is problem with the part. ------------------ Keep updated with any more queries.Thanks.

No spark runns fine then loses spark wait 10 minutes starts


The spark plugs receives power to spark from coil pack.Check the power at the coil pack and also check the voltage at the coil pack with meter.If the coil pack shows proper power as well as voltage then its fault in spark plugs.Otherwise its faulty coil pack.The coil pack receives power from battery.so also check the voltage of the battery it should be exact 12 volt.
If the battery shows low voltage then the battery needs to be re-charged.
Then check out.
Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

No spark to the coil


No spark to the coil or is it no spark from the coil? First verify that you have 12 volts to the coil when you turn ignition switch on if not you will never have spark from the coil going to the plugs. If you do have 12 volts to the coil and still no spark you have a bad coil. To see if the coil is firing, unplug a spark plug wire from it's plug and hold it to a chasis ground while attempting to start the vehicle. There should be a strong spark and popping sound. Remember to wear leather glove or thick work glove if holding the wire by hand to avoid shock. If there is a strong spark then coil is good.

If you have a volt/ohm meter, you may want to first ohm check the resistance between the two spark plug towers on each ignition coil pack. Simply remove the spark plug wires from each coil pack and test. Both (if good) should test about the same resistance, (about 5-7 kOhms, but I don't have the exact specs handy on this particular vehicle. The reading may be higher, maybe around 7-12kOhms) but nonetheless, the reading of the 1-4 coil pack should closely match the 2-3 coil pack. If not, the new coil pack may be faulty and should be returned for a replacement.

Also, when you remove the 1-4 coil pack, take a look at the primary spade connectors (2 lugs) coming out of the ignition module. Make certain these are clean and free of rust or corrosion. If so, simply (and gently) use a finger nail file or 400 (or equivilent) sandpaper to file the corrosion off and re-attach the coil pack.

If one or both of these don't fix the problem, you may have to look at replacing the ignition module. But only do that after exhausting the other simpler and less expensive tests! :)

I hope these tips help you out or at least point you in the right direction! :)

CAR WONT CRANKS BUT WONT START


There is an easy way to determine wether your getting spark or not. Take a plug wire off a spark plug and put it next to a solid piece of metal like a bracket (somewhere you can see the end of the wire sparking) hold the wire behind the connection point, and crank the engine (have someone help). If you see a spark, you are getting spark to the plugs, but may still have a problem with the coil pack. There is only one way to find out. Take the coil pack off, and look at it. There are two types of coil packs - 1 piece and three piece (others may be possible) on a three piece, you will need to have each one tested to determine whether it's bad or not. On a one piece, pull it off and look at the glue like material underneath it, that part is called the modular (the coil pack(s) will screw down to it. The modular may be bad, and may be able to test it as well.

Car wont start


these cars go through coil packs regularly as the packs overheat due to their position on the end of the engine. I have 3 lanos and have replaced all coil packs at around 90,000 k's.
Hope this helps.
