Make sure cam and crank sensor are active. pcm must see these signals before allowing primary part of coil pack to energize. crank sensor will be possible suspect,usually located on engine to bell housing. flexplate or flywheel is the reluctor wheel or like a shutter wheel for the sensor to identify the position of crank for spark delivery. see if you have voltage at harness to coilpack with key on? if not you have another problem.

1998 Ford Escort coil pack question


The small difference in ohms does not sound like an issue. But spark going down plug is not right. If spark is going down side it usually means plug is bad or wires bad. Once spark makes arc down plug it usually has made plug unusable. You may want to get wires and plugs and try again. Don't try checking for spark with wire not fully on plug. Motorcycles I have had used to arc down porcelain and plug was instant junk when it happens.

Ford escort 1996 1.8i - running on 3 cylinders, changed leads have spark


Determine what cylinder is misfiring and do a compression test on that cylinder. Compare it with a cylinder that is not misfiring. You should have no more than 20% difference between the good cylinder and the bad cylinder. If it is low on compression, suspect a burn valve or bad valve seat... and it will require cylinder head repair. If it is good on compression, then look for a faulty injector or some other reason for the misfire on the dead cylinder.

Replace the coil pack. There are four individual coils in it. so anyone of them could be bad without the others being affected.

1999 ford escort I changed the plugs, but broke a plug cap. Bought a generic replacement spark plug wire that had to be modified to fit into the head. I cannot get the firing order correct. The car...


Remove the plugs from the head. Insert into the coil wires. Make sure they are properly earthed on the engine. Crank the motor and check for spark at each of the plugs.
Refer to the diagram. Cylinders are connected as shown on the diagram in blue. 1 goes to cylinder 1(sparkplug furthest from coil pack), 2 to 2, 3 to 3 and 4 to 4(closets to coil pack).
To test the coil pack use a digital volt meter. Measure resistance between coil towers for coil 1(marked 1 in red on diagram) Value should be between 12000 and 14500 ohm. Do the same for coil towers 2.
Measure resistance between I and C1. If the measurement is more than 5 ohm the coil is defective. Do the same for I to C2.
Measuring voltage at I(Ignition start/run) to ground should be 10V.
I is connected to the 15A engine fuse. The radio interference capacitor is connected between this line and earth at the coil. Disconnect it to see if it cures the problem.
C1 and C2 connect to the powertrain control module.
Bear in mind that aftermarket coil wires may cause problems with misfiring, so see if you cant find an OEM coil wire to replace the broken one before replacing anything else.
