Had the same problem in mine we found it was the cam shaft positioning sensor. my van had shut off and we had no current to plugs and at first thought coil pack but still nothing. no power to coil pack. then found sensor no good. also we replaced the sensor with an after market sensor and worked fine for couple months then started to shut off again. after a little research found we needed original cam shaft pos sen from dealer and since then no problems. hope this works for you.

Have the trouble codes tested and get back to me, also have the alternator tested for a bad diode, that will cause loss of spark, u can test this by unplugging the alternator from the system and seeing if u have spark

2004 chrysler van 3.8 motor replaced coil pack still doesnt fire number 4 cylinder


If the coil pack has a four wire connector, one wire is primary voltage, the other three wires are ground, one ground for each coil, one coil fires two spark plugs. If problem with coil or ground, you would lose spark for two spark plugs. Did you visually check for spark, everywhere? What about the spark plug wire or the spark plug, itself?

My service engine light is flashing.the van is also running rough.1996 town and country van over 200,000 miles but maintained well


On yours, it's a misfire. Plug, wire or coil pack. Have the codes read. this will tell you where to look. 301 is 1 cylinder 303 is # 3. and so on. Pull the wire off the coil, have it close, no spark, replace the coil. Spark, do a tune up. Plugs and wires.

Replaced spark plugs & wires now vehicle has no spark,help has plenty of fuel can smell it when cranking over,also tried to install new crank sensor,help please.


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

If that's the case then the coil pack can be faulty. If the coil pack is faulty it tends not to give current to the plugs. As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you replace the coil pack. It's located inside the engine at the side where the plug wires are connected. You will need to remove the cap first to gain access to the coil pack.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Ok I have 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee, I have replaced the spark plugs and the coil rail but still getting the code P0351 and I was wondering if this could be caused by some kind of sensor?


The code indicates the coil pack or spark plug is malfunctioning. You can test this using an additional person. by removing the coil pack and spark plug, place the spark plug into the coil pack and ground the tang on the spark plug to the engine. Have someone start the engine and watch for a blue spark. if there is no spark, then the coil pack is malfunctioning. There is also ways to check the coil packs using a multimeter.

also, bee sure you didnt crack the ceramic part of the plug during initial installation.

2000 safari van no spark to spark plugs turns over but won't fire


Sounds like it is either a bad coil pack, cam position sensor or crank position sensor. The coil pack delivers the spark to the plugs and the 2 sensors tell the computer when to tell the coil pack to spark.

1998 Pontiac transport van wont start:


Well you hit all the major ones, could be crank position sensor, ignition module, a bad coil pack (it should have 3), you need to check that you have spark to each plug while the engine is turning over (!!!be careful as this will hurt if you get shocked!!!), this will rule out coil packs. if you have no spark to any plug your looking at a bad ingnition module (which is what the coil packs bolt to). Hope this gets you on the right track!

Car does not seem to have spark.where is ignition coil car


There's a coil pack that usually sits right on top of the engine. Follow the spark plug wires. Usually the coil pack won't fail completely you might lose 2 cylinders but not all 6. Are you getting a check engine light? It could be the cam or crankshaft sensor, they send signals to the coil pack via the power train control modual.

2002 kia sedona 3.5l has rough idle replaced plugs wires and coil


this vehicle has coil packs for the ignition correct? have you ran the engine at night with all surrounding lights outs so its really dark. spray a mist of water on the coil packs and spark plug wires to see if you have spark/voltage leaks jumping out from them. sometimes the tiny sparks will be so fine and skinny you can barely see them so it needs to be dark. hope this helps your trouble shooting. a coil pack could have such a fine crack for the voltage to leak from that you cant see it.
