Car cut off in middle of driving would not start again. What's wrong?


I had this happen to me. It was the ignition module, an inexpensive fix as well. The module is located normally at the bottom of the distributer and in other locations that are model specific

Won't start, i take the coil wire off coil an it has a spark but spark doesn't spark at distributor cap when i take wire off


It could be a couple of reasons but from my experience in most cases you are looking at a bad ignition control module. If you are not getting ANY spark at all to the spark plugs. I'm not saying just go and replace it because it could be a number of things like a bad ECM or the fuse going to the ECM or even a bad camshaft position sensor. The ignition control module costs about $70.00 and like I said is the most common but check the others first. I would start at the fuses. The ignition control module is mounted on the side of the distributer and I gave you a picture below of what one looks like for your vehicle. I hope this helps and good luck.

On the side of the distributor there is a ecm or brain to control the spark. If you replace the ecm (electronic control module), this should repair the problem. Make sure you use dielectric grease when installing the new ECM.

Before you change ECM, You must make sure you have spark from plugs..If not pull the distributer it tends to shatter internally which the eye cannot tell unless opened properly.

Car not running on all cylinders


the first thing that comes to mind is ignition system faults. Are the spark plug wires connected properly, in the right firing order? Has work been done on the distributer, or the engine head, recently? Ignition timing can be 180 degrees out, and the engine will still run, sometimes. If it is not the ignition system, the next most likely culprit is the head gasket, which seals the head to the block of the engine. If this gasket is breached seriously, it can cause a cylinder(s) not to fire. Is there water in the oil, as evidenced by a thick, white foam? Is there oil in the coolant? Either of these are symptoms of a leaking head gasket. 
Basically, one cylinder isnt firing for one of a number of reasons. The most common cause is an igntion fault. This will cause the engine to feel and sound "lumpy", and the power would be greatly reduced. The best way to find the cylinder which is responsible is quite simple but care must be taken. Firstly if you hate electric shocks as much as I do, find a proper pair of electricians insulated pliers, and even some decent rubber gloves if you can aswell. Start the engine, and one at a time, use the pliers to remove a lead from the top of one spark plug, if the engine almost stops, or gets worse in any way, it is not that piston which isnt firing. Repeat the proccess, one at a time, you will know which piston ISNT firing when you remove the plug lead, and there is no change in the engine sound, this is your defective cylinder. Its just a case then of looking at the condition of the spark plug and asessing the cause of the misfire before carrying out repairs. BEWARE:- THE LEADS WHICH CONNECT TO THE SPARK PLUGS CARRY SEVERAL THOUSANDS OF VOLTS - HENCE RUBBER GLOVES AND INSULATED PLIERS

Engine will not start!!!


was the timing belt changed, since it overheated the cam may have gotten tight and the belt might have jumped 2-3 teeth and you still would have a spark and fuel pressure.
