SOURCE: Service Engine Soon light keeps coming on

When the water pump leaks, it leaks right onto the Opti-Spark distributor. It will cause the same issues you are having. Replace the Opti along with the spark plus and wires.

SOURCE: how to check a 2002 kia sedona ignition coil

first, does the motor have 2 or 3 coils? if so, check the ohms on the ones you know is good, then check the ohms on the other one. if they're about the same, they might be fine. other than that theres the ignition module usually located under the coil packs. i dont know how to check it, but if you think its bad, contact your local trusted mechanic and see if he knows how to check it. modules usually run about 70-100 dollars, depending on the manufacturer. you could also check the crankshaft position sensor, but usually if that goes, the whole engine will misfire.
also, the ingition system has what you call a "dead spark." for example, you have 3 coils on the car, and two cylinders are fired by 1 coil. while one cylinder is on its compression stroke, the other is on its exhaust stroke, and when it fires it sends the spark to both cylinders at once. thats why the spark going to the one on its exhaust stroke is the dead spark.
hope this helps!!!

SOURCE: engine turns over but no spark at the plugs.

You can change pick-up coil, you need to remove distributor (mark where rotor is pointing first) Then you need to remove pin in cam gear on end of shaft to remove gear so you can remove shaft from housing. Then you can replace pick-up coil. Install in reverse. Note when removing distributor rotor will move to the right as you lift distributor out, move rotor to right of mark you made when installing distributor back in.

My 1996 Taurus when I press the gas pedal when cold it sputters and lacks power. When it warms up it runs great.


Possible causes - Faulty spark plug 5
- Clogged or faulty fuel injector 5
- Faulty ignition coil 5
- Fuel injector 5 harness is open or shorted
- Fuel injector 5 circuit poor electrical connection
- Ignition coil 5 harness is open or shorted
- Ignition coil 5 circuit poor electrical connection
- Insufficient cylinder 5 compression
- Incorrect fuel pressure
- Intake air leak

The P0305 code means that the cylinder 5 is misfiring or is randomly misfiring. Start by checking for intake leaks an if no leaks are found the next step is to replace the spark plugs on cylinder 5. If the problem persist more tests needs to be done to diagnose problem, see "Possible Causes



When is the code detected? Engine Cylinder 5 is Misfiring.


When a misfire occurs, engine speed will fluctuate. If the engine speed fluctuates enough to cause the Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor signal to vary, the Engine Control Module (ECM) can determine that a misfire is occurring.

CHUGGING ALONG WITH FLASHING CHECK ENGINE LIGHT....???? 2002 FORD WINDSTAR WHERE TO BEGIN


A flashing Check Engine light means you have a ignition Misfire, start by replacing the spark plugs and spark plug wires, one or more is defective. If you have a electronic engine control fault code reader the cylinder or cylinders that are misfiring will set a fault code, the codes are P0300-P0306, the last number being the number of the cylinder ( cylinders 1-6) the computer has detected a misfire in.

If it rains my 01 ford windstar will not want to run. It will back fire and miss. When dry for few days it will run better engine light is on but if you clear the codes it will run like nothing is wrong....


Windstars are known for lean codes caused by upper intake plenum gaskets. Also, there is a small tube going into the air intake hose that will pull out if you tried to install an air filter. It goes into the air intake hose between the air filter box and the throttle body on the firewall side of the hose. Check it. As far as the EGR concern you would need to provide the exact code. The lean codes won't cause what you're describing. The symptom you're describing sounds more like a misfire. Windstars are known for ignition coils going bad due to hairline cracks allowing moisture in and causing the misfire. The coil is located behind the intake plenum. Also, windstars are known for fouling #'s 1,2 and 3 plugs with oil. Good luck. Be sure to have your rear axle and front subframe checked for cracks at a ford dealer. There's a safety recall on them and if it's too bad, Ford will purchase the vehicle for 1.5 times the book value if it's unsafe.

My ford 2001 winstar engine is misfiring what can I check, I cleaned the injectors changed plug and wires still the same problem


You don't clean injectors by adding 10 oz
of anything, to 18 gallons of gas

The plugs while good to change at
70,000 miles ,won't be your problem

Wires should last the life of the car

Check,not change the ignition module .

I believe you have a Mazda

Misfire


Good Evening, I can understand your frustration with a misfire on your van. There are only a few things that go wrong with the windstars, mainly the ignition coil or the intake/plenum gaskets but i will not rule out spark plugs or spark plug wires. The first thing to do is try and isolate which cylinder is misfiring and then checking that spark is coming off that spark plug wire and going from there. I hope this helps point you in the right directions, and if you have any other questions please feel free to ask.

2002 ford windstar misfire!!!


Hello

Check your ignition components, spark plugs, wires, if they are in good shape. Check with Ford technical service bulletins. There is a TSB for the upper intake plenum gaskets leaking when engine is cold. The TSB also has a reflash for the Engine Control Module.. I tried just doing the upper intake gaskets and so far so good. The reflash (reprogram your original computer) has to be done at the dealer. Hope this helps..
