Depends on if it a 1.9 or a 1.8. The 1.9 is simple, follow the coil wire coming out of the distrubuter thats not going to a spark plug and remove the wire from the coil the electrical connerter that has two small wires and the bolts that hold the bracket to the cylinder head. on the work bench saparate the bracket from the coil and put it on the new coil then bolt it on the engine then plug in the wires and go. The 1.8 is the Mazda derived motor and the coil is inside the distrubuter heald on with 2 bolts and nuts and 2 bolted on wire connections. Be careful as the parts are expensive and seldom fail so the parts store may have to sell you the whole expensive distrubutor to get it going. Coils selodom fail. You did'nt ask what to do if you don't have spark. the coil is unlikly to be the cause on an engine that ran OK last time you drove it. Timing belt breaking and the cam and dist. not turning, are real common.

Did you get the wire on in the right spot? The coil should be marked for which cylinders they go to.

Ignition problem on ford escort.


The battery might seem ok but I would take it to a place like Sears or a large auto parts store.Call them first to be sure they have a load tester.. Tell them the battery needs to be "load tested".When you turn the key to start it takes alot more amp power to turn the engine over.
I hope this helps you.

Where is the ignition module control located on 1996 ranger 2.3 e


It does not have an ignition control module. The PCM (powertrain control module) fires the coil pack based on signal it recieves from the crankshaft position sensor and the camshaft position sensor.

94 ford escort no fire


Hi there!

You've done the most obvious, and we're still in the process of elimination -
You said -"no fire" so that's completely dead - not even a missfire?

The problem should be at the coil, or 12V side of things.

The coils usually fail at high voltage, - so test OK with a meter, just break down in use as the insulation is defective.
I had a car that was stripped of everything - and it ended up being a defective coil - which is what I suggested in the first place.

Make sure you are getting 12V to the coil with the ignition ON.

If possible test the coil by using the HV output directly to a spark plug (one of the old ones) - then ground the other terminal.
(make sure you have both contacts) You should get a spark when turning ignition on and off.

Any noise from the coil during testing will indicate a fault also.

Check battery condition and clean contacts as a precaution.
Don't shock yourself! - take safety precautions against this.
