Hi Jason, Sounds like you have a coil pack and one of your coils is faulty. To check which coil is faulty just pull a spark plug lead off a spark plug and plug the spark plug lead onto a SPARE spark plug, Now earth it to the CLEAN motor or body (make sure the spark plug is touching metal) Start the motor, it's going to run ROUGHER than usual but you'll see if that spark plug is sparking... If it sparks then that coil is good. Turn the motor off and replace the spark plug lead back on to the original spark plug. Repeat with the next spark plug lead and so on until you start your car and the spark plug doesn't spark, THAT'S YOUR FAULTY COIL...
Oh, Hi David it's either fuel or spark... To check for spark just pull a spark plug lead off a spark plug and plug the spark plug lead onto a SPARE spark plug, Now earth it to the CLEAN motor or body (make sure the spark plug is touching metal) Turn the motor over using the ignition, If the spark plug doesn't spark then it could be coil... If it's sparking then you have a fuel problem, The fuel pump is usually in the fuel tank BUT I have no idea about the year, make or model number your car is....CHEERS..
Hi does the motor turn with key but doesn't start?, If so take a spark plug out and replace it back into the spark plug lead and earth it onto a steel part of the body(make sure it's touching something steel). Have somebody turn the key to see if your getting spark. If you have spark then you have a fuel blockage but if you don't have spark but have new coils and battery then it could be a loose wire in the coil harness meaning electrical......
You say car does not crank over, If you mean you turn the key and motor doesn't turn then it's electrical, so no spark OR motor doesn't turn you're better off getting an auto electrician but if you have spark it's fuel problem and you need a mechanic... Sorry and good luck......
u need to ck for spark & fuel,,pull off one plug wire & put a spark plug in it,,lay the plug on the exhaust manifold so u can see the spark plug electrodes,,have someone turn over the motor look for a spark,,,or buy a spark tester,,,
Right at the front of the motor as the motor relates to the car. It is a transverse mounted engine so the side of the motor faces the front and back.
The side that is closest to the radiator has the spark plugs. If it works, the attached sight will sow you a picture and other end of the wire the guy is holding is where the spark plug is located.
If you are inexperienced, be sure to use your hand to screw the plug back in to start. make sure you can turn it several turns before you use a socket. This will prevent you from cross threading the plug.
make sure you have the right firing order for the spark plug wires from the disbutor to the spark plugs. thats the most common for motor turns over and briefly fires and then dies. try looking up the firing order for the spark plug wires.
Check that you have pushed the spark plug wires fully home on the spark plug. If it's not turning it could be the solenoid that connects the battery to the starter motor when trying to start or simply a flat battery. Check battery first, check solenoid by listening to a click sound, check starter motor for connections check any related fuses.
