A misfire doesn't always have to be ignition... it's just the most common cause. Faulty or plugged injector, low compression. You need to check fuel pressure and test the fuel injector flow. Then check compression. If you don't have tools for these tests, take it to someone who does. Testing is much cheaper than throwing parts at the problem.

Check engine light on engine cranks but wont start and there is no spark coming out from sparkplug


The check engine light is most likely a misfire code. You need to check your coil packs for supplied voltage. If you have 12 volts supplied, check your ground to the packs. If your ground is good then most likely the coil pack is pad.

My 96 volvo 850 gtl2.4L ENGINE CRANK OVER BUT WONT START I REPLACED THE INGNITION COIL \ POWER STAGE WITH NO RESULTS.PLEASE HELP


Reasons for engine turning over and not firing are simple. Spark or fuel. If you've changed the coil packs then chances are it's a fuel issue. Get in cab and turn ignition to second position whilst listening to back seat. You should hear the faint noise of the fuel pump working. If you can't, I suggest you firstly check your manual to find the fuse/relay for the fuel pump and check that. If they are fine, you need to replace fuel pump.

If you can hear it working and it still won't start, remove the fuel line going to injector rail and point into a jar whilst someone turns engine over. You should have fuel coming out. If this is fine, go back to ignition, remove a spark plug and turn engine over checking for a spark.

My bet is your fuel pump has packed-up. Good luck diagnosing.

My coil pack keeps going out in my 2005 dodge caravan.. There is no power going to the coil pack


I don't understand why you would replace the coil if you are not getting power to it.
The coil is powered by the ASD relay. Have you replaced the relay ?

Car turns over but won't start. battery good, alternator about to be replaced, though alt. has nothing to do with the problem. what next?


it sounds like either your not getting spark, or fuel at the engine. it could be the coil packs/plug wires or the fuel pump/filter its hard to say what to do first. when you get in the car and turn the ignition on to the position just before turning the engine over you should be able to hear the fuel pump kick on in an attempt the prime the fuel system. if you can smell fuel at the engine after cranking for a few seconds its probably getting fuel. if you have access to an ohm meter with a wire clamp you can test each of your plug wires as you crank it to see if your getting spark. each coil pack sends spark through two plug wires. if you cant read a signal from two of the plug wires trace them back to the coil packs and if they go to the same coil pack that coil pack has gone bad. if they go to separate coil packs you may have two coil packs malfunctioning. this is where i would start i hope it helps.

TURNING OVER BUT WONT START REPLACED COIL PACK, FUELPUMP, FUEL FILTER, PLUGS AND WIRES. CANT FIGURE OUT THE PROBLEM


Have you checked the injector wiring? Each has only 2 wires you can check. If no power, test the injector power control module.

1994 dodge intrepid wont start


you need fuel and fire to start your car. if you have no power at your coil packs then you will need to check your crank sensor as well to see if you have power there. i would also double check your fuses and relays. if you have a test light then i suggest you check the power and trigger wires at your starter to providing that the engine is not spinning over.

Had same problem with my '94 passat vr6. Started ok then nothing then ok again. Thought it was the coil pack 'cause there was no spark but that didn't solve it. Turned out to be the ignition relay in the fuse block.

Not getting spark


Testing the coil packs.

1. Get an INSULATED wire and hook it to a ground on the car.
2. Get some one to help you
3. pull a spark plug wire off the coil
4. hold grounded wire close to, but not touching, the part where the spark plug wire connects
5. keep hands away from coil and have your helper turn the engine over ( start car and turn off)
6. if there was a spark between the wire and the coil pack it is good. if not, the coil pack needs replaced
7. replace the spark plug wire
8. test the rest
