Witch wire is spost to be hot running into a coil

Don't know the wire color, but it would be the wire going to the primary positive side of the coil. Does the coil have a + and -, where the small wires hook up? The one with the +, that is the hot wire to the coil, with key on.

My 1995 jeep grand cherokee has power starter is turning over but jeep wont start.

Please check if there is spark at the output of the ignition coil, situated on the left side (passenger side) of the engine.
1. Get a paper clip.
2. Remove coil wire from the distributor cap. Double check that the other end of the wire is firmly snapped onto the coil terminal
3. Place paper clip inside the loose coil wire end, making sure it makes contact with the coil wire conductor, and let it protrude from the end of the wire.
4. Using pliers with insulated handles, hold the end of the wire with he protruding clip ~3/8 in. from the terminal of the cap where you disconnected the coil wire,while an assistant turns the key for 3-4 seconds.
Caution: Stay clear of the fan and any rotating pulleys.
5. Is there a spark arcing from the coil wire paper clip to the terminal on the cap?
6. If so, what color?
7. It should be bright white in color.
8. If blue or orange, the coil may be at fault.
9. If no arc, the coil is bad.

There is a tool available at the auto parts storethat can be clipped onto the coil wire and it will indicate the condition of the of the coil output.

High consumption of fuel,smoking alot and sometimes hardstart.After consulting with some experts and doing computer diagnosis it showed opening and closing idling coil and airflow sensor were all faulty.I...

Have the wires to the airflow sensor been cut and spliced back together? Because it sounds like someone put an airflow sensor from another vehicle on the car and rewired the harness so it would work. If that's the case, find where the wires have been cut and spliced and put them back the way they were The wires should be different colors, match the colors.

Wont run smooth &misfires has code po 352 ignition coil #2 primary circut

First you should have a Haynes Manual for your specific car that's available at most parts stores. Since it states that your "Ignition Coil B primary or secondary circuit malfunction", then I would first measure the Coils Resistance which is listed in your Haynes Manual. If it comes up incorrectly for the values given, then replace the coil, if not, check the Z2 Circuit which is the Ground to your PCM or computer. It should be a 12 gauge wire, black & tan that's bolted to the Engine block for a corroded condition. This corrosion will throw multiple codes except for the PCM's Ground. In the Haynes Manual there is a wiring diagram of your PCM in the back that, if I'm wrong about the color of the wire, will give you the proper color.

1998 mustang gt coil wire diagram

If the colours on the new plug are different,no problem. Just make sure the same amount and colour go back to the original holes/terminals.
If you still need help, you should let us know which engine you have.Also if it is a 2V or 4V.

I need to find a wiring diagram for a 73 corvette on the coil

Look at the HEI distributor. You will see a rectangle shape coming out of the side of the coil cap. Observing it closer, you will see that there is abbreviations on it, raised up from the rectangular area.

BATT is Battery. This is where the thick Red wire goes. It comes from the starter, but doesw not receive power until the ignition switch is turned to the On position.

TACH is Tachometer. This is a wire smaller than the BATT wire, and is usually Brown in color, but color codes vary. May be Blue.

There are three flat blades, looking underneath this rectangular shape.
Flipping it back and forth, you can see that one of the outside flat blades, goes to the Batt wire.
The other outside flat blade goes to the Tach wire.
The middle flat blade goes to Ground.
