I assume it was running before you changed the plugs and wires, verify you didnt disconnect accidently another wire such as a crank position sensor or an oxygen sensor on or near exhaust manifold
also check the wire firing order make sure that is correct...

I have dodge stratus 2004 engine light keeps coming on I have change all spark plugs cables and ignition coil and it still says miss fire 2


Check that spark plug to make sure it isn't getting fouled inside the cylinder. Also, make sure the boot on the end of the ignition cable is intact and doesn't have any oil on it. You can check for a spark leak by driving into a dark area and, with the engine running, spray water on the spark plug cables. You'll see sparks if there are any spark leaks.

Hi, to change the spark plug, remove the engine cover and intake manifold plenum. Remove the spark plug cables. CAUTION: When pulling off the spark plug cable from the plug always hold the cable cap, not the cable. Remove the spark plugs.
Hope it helps.....

1995 Grand cherokee 5.2 engine, when cold takes forever to start up. once hot will start up on first try. i changed the spark plugs but same result. idles fine runs good. Spark plugs were dry when...


Living in New England we have some cold days. What I find helps, but not necessary your problem, is to turn the key to the "on" position for 5 seconds or so and then turn the key to actually start the engine. Its starts right up without major pull on starter or battery.

Car will not start. it cranks but won't turnover. have lights so thinking it's not the battery. could it be the starter?


Hi:
If your cranks, the starter is working. If the engine doesn't start, then you are either not getting spark or fuel.

If you can borrow a fuel pressure guage, that would tell you if your fuel pump circuit is working. You can check for spark by inserting a spare spark plug into one of your connected spark plug wires, and ground it to a metal part of your engine.
Good luck on your hunt.

My 1986 Chevy S-10 Blazer stopped running while i driving


If your engine timing is good, (meaning the cam is timed to the crank, and distributor) and you have spark and fuel, your engine will run. Try a compression test, and back up and re-test fuel and spark. Make sure the spark works with a HEI spark tester. (Coils can go bad and give a weak spark)

2001 Ford Focus stopped running while i was driving and wont start. Makes a churning sound but no power is going to engine. I changed the ignition coil, still wont turn on. Any suggestions?


Can you explain more so I can help. What do you mean still wont turn on, engines doesn't start or starter motor doesn't turn. Have u taken out a spark plug and connected it to the cable put the end of the spark plug to a ground and make someone turn on the engine for a few seconds you should see some blue sparks. Carefully use gloves. If no sparks, spark plug is bad next thing to check instead of putting the spark plug in the cable put Philips screwdirver put the screwdriver near a ground not touching about one inch make someone turn the engine for a couple of second you should see the spark jumping from the screwdriver to the ground, If there are no sparks ignition coil or spark plug cables are not good. But u say u changed ignition coil so maybe your cables are not good. There is a connector near the ignition coil disconnect it and turn ignition switch on measure the voltage you should have in between 12vdc + or - .5 vdc if no voltage present there is a blown fuse, Check for it

check spark plugs.
with the engine running (idle)
disconnect one spark plug cable,
see if your engine goes at lower speed or notice engine speed variation.
if it does, the spark plug is OK. it no change, the spark plug is bad.
reconnect the first one then disconnect the next plug.
do this untill at the last spark plug connection.

Hi! i think you must describe more problem symptoms;
DESCRIPTION The starting system includes the battery, starter motor, solenoid switch, ignition switch, inhibitor switch(A/T), ignition lock switch, connection wires and the battery cable. When the ignition key is turned to the start position, current flows and energizes the starter motor's solenoid coil. The solenoid plunger and clutch shift lever are activated, and the clutch pinion engages the ring gear. The contacts close and the starter motor cranks. In order to prevent damage caused by excessive rotation of the starter armature when the engine starts, the clutch pinion gear overruns. http://hmaservice.com/viewer/dispimg.asp?path=/data/Passenger/HY/HMA/ENG/SHOP-images/HY-SM13-IMAGES-ENG/ebkd010a.gif INSPECT SPARK TEST 1. Remove the spark plug cable. 2. Using a spark plug socket, remove the spark plug. 3. Remove the ignition coil. 4. Install the spark plugs to each spark plug cable. 5. Ground the spark plugs. 6. Check is spark occurs while engine is being cranked. 7. Using a spark plug socket, install the spark plugs. 8. Install the spark plug cable and ignition coil.
