Connect a spark plug test gauge tool. It has an adjustable tip which allows you to see if there's a spark.

SOURCE: 1992 plymouth vayager no spark from coil

Voltage is applied across the coil primary only in brief pulses too short to light the typical troubleshooting light. The 2 seconds you are seeing it light is just before the coil is hit with pulses. After that brief span, voltage is applied and removed too quickly to detect that with a light.
 If you are getting no spark, it is because this rapid application and removal of the voltage isn't happening at all. This can be caused by a failed ignition module or ECU. In your engine, there may also be a pulse transformer in the distributor that supplies signal to the coil instead of the pulse coming from the ECU. Pulse coils will normally measure from 6,000-12,000 ohms if they are still OK.

SOURCE: Random Misfire of cylinders

Look for a vacuum leak.

Look at your scanner for fuel trims, if it adding that is a sure dign of a vacuum leak.

When all else fails you will need a REAL scanner with MODE 6 if what you have does not have the misfire counters as part of the normal PIDs.

$50 code scanners will not do what you need, it may be time to find a shop with a real tech, look for a shop that has a tech with an ASE L1 certification.

The only other alltenative you have is drive it until you can get a miss on a particular cylinder. (but that may not happen)

If it was in front of me I would be scanning cylinder misfire counters under MODE 6.

SOURCE: 1992, 4.9L f150 has no spark. I have a new

Help,
I have a 92 F-150 XLT with a 5.0. The ignition switch block burned up so I replaced it. Now it will not get spark when I crank it over, but when I crank it and let off of the key, I get one spark jump from the coil; to the distributer. (I have a spark tester I placed on the cap to the wire) I have replaced the coil and the ignition module that is on the fender attached to the brain, I have replaced the ignition cylinder and key (It was acting up) and I took the dash apart to see the wire harness to ensure there was no burnt wires. (The wire connection to the ignition block is not damaged from when the switch burned.
Does anyone know if there is a part that tends to go bad when the ignition block burns up??
Help, Thanks, Todd

SOURCE: 2002 ford focus zts no spark at cylinders 2 and 3 battery voltage at electric connector coil towers ohm at 10.6 and 10.6 at connector 0.08 and0.08 but no spark out of coil

Swap coils over ie: put 2 / 3 coil where 1 / 4 coil go and viser versa. If your no spark moves from 2 & 3 to 1 & 4 you have a faulty coil which is what I think yur problem will be.

Coil quit firing


If you have no spark from two of the four towers of your coil pack, you need to check the wiring between the coil pack and the ignition module. Since you have spark at two towers, that proves you have power to the coil pack. Both sets of coil windings in the coil pack are fed by the same B+ feed,(red and light green wires to both coil packs too). The control side wires from the ignition module to the coil packs are tan/light green and tan/light blue for one coil pack.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

92 buick lesabre ran great to store, when leaving, starting car resultedin chuging and popping noise, then fail to start. very good cranking speed. lots of gas in tank. i hear fuel pump operating, and gas...


I would recommend that you check to see if you are getting spark from the coil/coil packs. If this is not the issue, then you may be looking at a timing problem.

Hesitating realy bad bucking like it not getting gas


probably an engine misfire ( pretty common ) try a tune up with new spark plugs and spark plug wires, also check the ignition coil output ( its easy just test for spark at each spark plug wire) also replace the fuel filter ( it is under the car along the sub-frame rail )

My 1999 buick lesabre will not start. I have gasoline and the battery is good.


Hmm, do you have spark? fuel pressure must be between 30 - 40 psi test the ignition coils by connecting an ohmmeter between the coil towers ie 1and 4 with the key in the OFF position do the same with the others as well there are 3 coils all together...you should have readings between 5 an7 thousand ohms if so the secondary side of the coils are good, if there is no spark at all try an ignition module. this is under the 3 coils they sit on the ign module..You can also test and or replace the spark plug wires, if a wire is 10 inches long it should read 10,000 ohms or less.. No more than 1000 ohms per inch is the spec.. hope this helps good luck
