Sounds like you have a problem with the ignition module. Coils rarely go bad, but possible, but since you already changed it, more than likely its the module.

No sparks on 95 ford escort gt 1.8


If it is in fact a 1995 Escort GT, congratulations. The 1991-1996 Ford Escort GT is powered by a 1.8L DOHC Mazda engine, the same engine is also found in the, 1991-1995 Ford Escort LXE, 1990-99 Mazda Protege, 1991-95 Mercury Tracer LTS and 1994-97 Kia Sephia GS. The engine is over-built - I have a 1995 Escort GT in my garage with over 200,000 miles on it. I recently had the engine out of the car to replace the freeze plugs and I can tell you the following - it doesn't have an EGR valve but it does have a mounting pad on the driver's side of the lower plenum that was cast but never machined for one, it's Vane Air Flow like on an RX-7 or Protege not MAS, and the crank angle sensor is contained in the distributor - it's not part of the harmonic balancer. The PCV valve is mounted on the back of the the valve cover on the passenger side and the hose goes to the middle of the upper plenum not to the non-existent EGR valve. And absolutely none of this is helping you get your car started.

You need to troubleshoot this like a Mazda product, not a Ford since the only Ford parts in the engine bay are the sheet metal and fuel line connectors. There's no quick or easy answer to what's going on, but I would recommend getting a Haynes/Chilton's manual or at least reference one for their trouble-shooting guides before throwing dollars at a problem like this since it can be anything from fouled plugs to the ECU.

Start at the spark plugs and work backward, it's cheaper. Pull one of the plug wires off of a spark plug and have someone turn the engine over while you check for spark by holding the plug wire close to the engine. If you get a spark, then check check the plugs - oil fouled, gapped correctly, etc. If you don't get a spark, check distributor cap and rotor along with plug wires. It just keeps going, that's why you really should get a repair manual of some sort so you can do it in an orderly fashion.

This may take a few steps and a process to find the problem:First check for spark at plug, if no spark replace coil pack. But make sure all wires are attached to coil before anything.

No spark to the coil pack mk5 escort 1.6i


Do you mean no power at the coil or you have power there and no spark? with power and no spark check the ignition module located on the front side of the left hand strut tower, also check the crankshaft trigger to ensure that it is connected and working. Hope this helps, let me know
