Question about 2003 Ford Taurus
How do ya tell if the coils are firing if engine wont start but only turns over. went to start car and sounded like it fired on one or two cyclinders and never fired again. whats up with that
What you do is take either and old sparkplug from the car or pull one from the car and connect one of the sparkplug wires to it. Then with an insulated set of pliers hold the sparkplug so the electrode is grounded. Then have someone crank the car over. This is best done at night so you can see if there is a spark. During the day however you should be able to here a spark. If not probably a bad coil.
