    Glad to hear your problem has been solved...Note that the repair was made after careful testing...something I stress here all the time. You could have done that testing yourself, but at least you had it done, instead of buying a bunch of parts and throwing them at the problem!!! Good Luck!!!

Need to know why won't get no spark...changed ignition module, ignition coil, cap and rotor still not firing. ....any ideas


What make vehicle ? year an model too ! Before you replaced those parts did you check for battery supply voltage an check the ground for those components ? You need to get a wiring diagram an see what get's voltage an what is ground ! An see what all is involved , crankshaft position sensor , ECM / PCM -engine computer etc...! Then you need a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter to test ! Your looking for a quick fix an doesn't work like that !

Tahoe not getting fire to plugs, when I try to crank it there is an odor of gas and no start! Crank sensor,evap purge valve solenoid, fuel pump and knock sensors have all been replaced.


Things to check:
  1. Timing chain or timing belt (depending on which engine you have);
  2. Coil pack or ignition coil (depending on which engine and year);
  3. Rotor and distributor cap (if your Tahoe is an earlier model);
  4. ECU (especially if you jump-started the car before the issue began);

96 Jaguar XJ6 starts fine, idles at 800 in neutral 700 in gear, at times it gets a bit rough and stalls sometimes, restarts right away with no issues. Will not rev over 2700 rpm in neutral it just bogs. In...


the crank sensor is favorite they are unreliable that explaines why the trans not getting engine speed signal unless its a manual box and that code will allways be logged advise start by checking for water ingress in engine control module located lower rh a post then change crankshaft position sensor or better still try and borrow one from a good running car

93 nissan pick uptruck just quit running no sparkk put new cap rotor and power transister on still no spark,tried portable diagnostic and self


Go to Autozone.com and register your vehicle and get a free wiring diagram and powerbox layout. Although it sounds like you have some info.

Sounds like something dependent on the injector circuit is smoked. A bad relay, a bad fuelpump, find out which connects through the injector loop that is not connected when the injectors are out. You should be able to trace it back.

I mentioned the fuelpump because it coasts until the injectors dump fuel into the engine and runs only shortly until the pressure regulator signals a need to kick in again. Perhaps a fuel pressure regulator?

Would be interested in what you find.

Truck wont crank. we have put new distributor cap, rotor button, coil pack, plugs, wires, and fuel pump. we also checked our firing order.


you said you repl dist cap that means you don't have a crank sensor you have electronic ing module. remove your elec ing module have it tested most auto parts stores could test your module, or check your coil at the neg terminal. should have power. if not you lost your primary volt from your batt.your secondary power is coming from your electronic ing module from the module to the pos terminal on the coil, when the eng cranks,from the coil to the dist cap , from the dist cap center to the rotor then out to the plugs,this all happen pervided the timing belt or timing chain is ok. the cumbustion chainber needs 3 things , thats fuel, air, and spark.
