If there is no fire at the ignition coil, look to your ignition module as the culprit.

    Yes, you had misfiring before you had no fire at the coil.

Sounds like the crank shaft positioning sensor. Is the car getting spark?

SOURCE: 2004 Audi A4 misfire

it is always a good idea to stay with o.e.m parts and yes there is updated parts in the newer coils. and yes the M.A.F will also cause misfire faults but will not make check engine light flash or make car shake and shudder. also check you wire harness going to your coils make sure your ground wires are not cracked. That could be the main culprate. good luck hope this helps

New battery and it still won't crank at times.


you would need an ohm meter or a test light to figure out what is drawing voltage. you probably have short some where or, just perhaps the ignition switch is bad.

1987 ford crown victoria shuts down after 20 mins


I would check for spark when it happens. If no spark you probably have a thick film ignition module / profile ignition pickup issue. Replace both pieces if your going to do the job. It'll save you a headache later on down the road.

Random Misfire on 2 & 3


I had a problem with a chevy with random misffires on all cylinders. It was the computer. Fords have very few problems with there computers. Does the check engine come on? Maybe have it scanned.

If it was an old police vehicle it has probably got an ignition kill switch located somewhere. This will have to be removed. And the wiring put back to factory standards. If not an old police car you are not getting voltage to the starter which is a bad relay. Do you get a clicking sound when you try to start? If yes, have someone keep hitting the start and listen and look for a relay under the hood.
