SOURCE: car wont start

I noticed you replace the crankshaft sensor, but not the CAMshaft sensor.
The Ignition module takes the input of both sensors to tell the coil when to energize.
This sensor should come up as an error code when you attach a obd reader.
Even if your light is not on - there may be a code. If it is not your vehicle originally, some people pull the bulb!

The piston rings in your engine might be needed to be replaced already... go to a local shop with a compression tester.. have your engine tested for compression leaks.. if it does have compression leaks.. then you need to change piston rings. Note** white smokes = engine is burning oil..

A misfire doesn't always have to be ignition... it's just the most common cause. Faulty or plugged injector, low compression. You need to check fuel pressure and test the fuel injector flow. Then check compression. If you don't have tools for these tests, take it to someone who does. Testing is much cheaper than throwing parts at the problem.

Why are two spark plugs not firing?


This is likely a waste fire ignition system where one coil is firing two plugs. This is a less expensive system for the OEMs and is used in many models. I would swap the coil with another to assure that it is the coil and not the Spark Control Module.

If problem moves with the coil replace the coil.

My mpv wont turn over no spark


If the van was running before you changed the wires, I don't see how it is not firing the plugs now unless you got the wrong wires and they are not making contact with the coil towers and the plugs.
If there is no spark on any of the wires, something happened to the coil pack or the crank/cam sensors. Or a fuse or relay for the coil pack.
I would probably try an old plug wire to make sure, then check the coil for voltage.

My husband did a tune up on my car yesterday and now it wont start it will turn over like it wants to start but it wont he said that its miss firing we have bought 3 new coil packs and still will not start...


If your car is miss firing and your husband changed the coil packs,the wires leading from coil packs to sparkplugs must have got crossed.This will change car timing which will result in the car miss firing.He needs to go over wiring and correct problem for car to run right.You can go online to autozone.com and type in Info about car to get the correct wiring layout.Your problem isnt the new plugs n wires.Its the wiring layout.

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.

02 camry firing on only 2 cyclinders


If 2 and 4 won't fire no matter what coil is there, then you likely have problems with either spark plugs or spark wires. If rotating the coil packs doesn't make a difference, it has to be something that's always "with" those cylinders, which would be plugs and/or wires. A new set of plugs is very inexpensive, and isn't a bad idea, especially if it's been awhile since they were changed. I'd try them, see if it works, and if it doesn't, try swapping spark wires between cylinders (at both ends - undo the wires from the coil AND plug and move them to another cylinder and see if the fault follows).
