With as many sensors as that thing has, go to Autozone and ask for a free diagnostic tool check.

1992 geo storm replaced distributer have fire out of coil wire but no fire spark plug wire module in distributer checks out

storm is an ISUZU
and had 3engines,which one? below is off wiki on storm.
1.6 L SOHC 4XE1 I4
1.6 L DOHC 4XE1 I4
1.8 L DOHC 4XF1 I4

coil makes 50,000 volts (even 1kv makes fire, but is too weak spark
spark plugs dead , right? all 4 right?
ever do a 60k mile tune up ? if not why not, it gets new spark parts then..
also, if the cam timing is off. the dizzy sparks between towers
make the distributor useless, it cant distribute spark.
so the first tests are .
static ignition timing. (yes, a tool, called a timing light for $20)
if timing is good the the wires HV are bad.
if timing is bad, bingo..... this is the first test on any motor.
if the timing belt or chain on any SOHC or DOHC engine slips
the dizzy will be way to h3ll off.
learn to use a timing light, and works 100% cranking.

look at that distributor cap (replace it)
see the coil wire , center, that is at 50kv spark.
and see that rotor, if the spark is good at the cap pins 1 to 4
then the dizzy is timed.
if the spark dont reach the spark plugs that means
the wire are bad or the spark plugs are shorted, or both.
its that simple. using a real spark testing tools tells you the KV.
kv = kilovolts. the best tools $5 bucks have and adjustable gap
this car is not 100kv, like newer cars and must be set (tool) to 50kv or tad less to show full powerful spark.

take care not to get shocked, keep hands off the parts
as friend cranks (or remote start button tool)

Engine cranks but won't turn over

MY dad gave me the best advise on car engines...two things that keep the vehicle from starting. gas and fire. If possible remove a spark plug with to see if there is spark...if not, your problem could be a bad ignition coil and/or faulty distributor parts. If you have spark the nyou have a fuel problem which could be a clogged fuel filter or a bad fuel pump. I would start with the cheapest test first and at least ellimnate some of the easy fixes. Good luck.

My plug wires keep fouling up. changed three sets in two months. The keep going bad. Possible cause.

Plug wires could go bad because they are being sprayed with a conductor, like oil with carbon in it; or it could be the voltage is going to high, such as from spark plug gap too wide. Make sure plug gap is around .032".

#1 cylinder misfire and exahust smells bad . could it be converter plugged and car is missing on highway and no power

Hi Friend:

#1) Go ahead and Change your Plug Wires. Check your Timing and make sure its set right, now check the Coil that #1 Plug wire runs to, It could be you have a Bad coil. Each coil will have 2- Spark Plug wires that it gives you the Spark that goes to 2- of your Spark Plug Wies and to Spark Plug.

#2) If your timing is set Right and your Getting Fire from all your Coils to your Spark Plugs then you can rule them out.

#3) Then your Loss of Power and the smell you have is a Faulty or Plugged up Cataletic Covertor.

#4) Before replacing the Converttor ,Check to make sure that your Oxegen Sensors are good. ( A scan will tell you and Pin Point the various Emmission ,Electrical parts that are not Functioning properly.

#5) The convertor is very Expensive, So i'm going to give you a few more parts to check.

#6) Check your Air Filter make sure its not Dirty or Plugged up, Also check your PVC and The PVC line make sure the line is not Calasped.Check and make sure that your getting good Fuel Pressure. And check to make sure Fuel Filter is not Plugged or Restrited.

#7) When You Scan your Vehicle it will also give you codes that will eliminate some of the Problems i've Listed.

#8) And Last thing it could be is a Faulty Control Module.

Sir This will get your Vehicle running right and eliminate your problems.

Need to change sparkplugs on a Nissan Maxima

Tools : Socket Wrench
Socket Wrench Extentions
Sparkplug Wrench Attachment
8mm Socket
12mm Deep Socket
4mm Hex Tool
Phillips Screwdriver (Optional)
A Bowl(cereal bowl)*to keep all the screws and washers or anything small from going to far from you A box top(from a paper box or file box)*keep coil packs away from dirt or anything to dirty them

For a Maxima 4th Gen (95-99) i personally, and it is recommended, use NGK' Spark Plugs. Could go to your autozone/kregans/Napa etc to get them. BKR5EIX-11 you can use those its a bit pricey but they last a little longer and a bit of better spark. If not BKR5EGP will work okay to. You really don't want to use cheaper ones because of faster waste on spark plugs. Get also some additive for the spark plugs so they don't stick. you can ask them at the auto part store to show you it or if they have a small kinda sample bag. Once you get ready and your car is not hot anymore your going to pop of the lid where it says Nissan V6 3000etc. it comes off with the hex 4mm tool. Under there you will find 3 of the coil packs. your going to need the 8mm to take it off. Be sure to be real careful with the removal of them because they are not sensitive but they will cost you a pretty penny if you do loose them. Make sure you keep them in the same order you took them off (for example 1 the one to the right, keep the coil pack on the right so it is put back in the same spot.) Then after the removal get a flash light and see if any rubbers came of from the coil pack or if there is anything possibly stuck there. If there is get a metal hanger bend it and shape to take off if needed a "bootleg" tool. Once the coil pack is off and its clear take the socket wrench and the extension, should be a really long one i forgot exactly the size but should be at least a foot long, and attach the right size spark plug socket, when searching for the socket at the auto part store just when the spark plug is given take it and go to the location of tools and figure the right size(i recommend the ones called spark plug socket because they have a magnet so it wont loosen up or a type of rubber to keep it snug), then slowly take out the spark plug. Repeat for those 3 and put back in, after also putting the application for the spark plug, and make sure they are tight but not as tight as if you do not want to remove them, then put back to cover then onto the next 3. Max sure you put all the screws on and etc. the next 3 are found in the far back part of the engine. They are not the 3 that are close to the cover you removed. Do the same steps and make sure you don't lose screws or anything that will end up making you look for at night.

Car runs bad after replacing spark plugs and wires

Make sure the part store gave you the correct plugs and wires. Consult a third source for a firing order.
