Your going to gt spars if its working correctly. on coil paks...if youDONT get a shots of electricity,then either the plug going to the pak,or the pak itself is bad.

i have a 97 and boy i dont think i would have the balls to do that with my car.
but i believe that could be caused by carbon tracking.. get some carb spray and clean the whole area coil packs and wires..but i haven't ever heard of any one doing that, i did that when i was younger on my 69 charger, i went to reseat the coil wire while running and receievd 20,000volt shock and hit my head and arm on the hood. i dont know which hurt worse!

Isuzu 2ltr bakkie nmbr 2 and 3 no spark?


post 3, adds, no spark , 2/3 (and still no year, no country stated)
bad coil pack?
wired wrong, this pack.
no photo of the engine, nor real name of it, Petrol.
btw, we dont have "BAKKIE" here. not a single one.
nor KB trucks, either.
what spark system this car has, im clueless.
4 coils or 1 pack.? if one pack , replace all spark wires
if one pack system , if either 2/3 wire opens, both cylinders go dead. try new spark wires. high voltage,

or you measured spark wrong, on 1 pack car.
it takes 2 spark plugs do do that. 2 good plugs and 2 good wires,
#2 and #3, due to the fact they are wired, in SERIES.
see its called wasted spark system, with 1 coil pack and no distributor..
the testing is unique. on this, setup.
try new spark plugs, gapped correctly
and 4 new HV wires,
I bet its go. if not the coil pack is toasted.

1999 ford escort I changed the plugs, but broke a plug cap. Bought a generic replacement spark plug wire that had to be modified to fit into the head. I cannot get the firing order correct. The car...


Remove the plugs from the head. Insert into the coil wires. Make sure they are properly earthed on the engine. Crank the motor and check for spark at each of the plugs.
Refer to the diagram. Cylinders are connected as shown on the diagram in blue. 1 goes to cylinder 1(sparkplug furthest from coil pack), 2 to 2, 3 to 3 and 4 to 4(closets to coil pack).
To test the coil pack use a digital volt meter. Measure resistance between coil towers for coil 1(marked 1 in red on diagram) Value should be between 12000 and 14500 ohm. Do the same for coil towers 2.
Measure resistance between I and C1. If the measurement is more than 5 ohm the coil is defective. Do the same for I to C2.
Measuring voltage at I(Ignition start/run) to ground should be 10V.
I is connected to the 15A engine fuse. The radio interference capacitor is connected between this line and earth at the coil. Disconnect it to see if it cures the problem.
C1 and C2 connect to the powertrain control module.
Bear in mind that aftermarket coil wires may cause problems with misfiring, so see if you cant find an OEM coil wire to replace the broken one before replacing anything else.

Where and how to change 2001 olds aurora spark plugs, 6 cyl? yhanks


1 - remove the engine vanity cover. 2 - Disconnect the electrical connector from the coil pack. This is the silver thing the electrical connector goes to. 3 - remove the coil pack (about 6-8 bolts). It may require some jiggling as the rubber boots that go to the plugs will have some resistance. 4 - Note, you should so this with the engine warm. 5 - Now you have access to the plugs. Rear: 1 - a little more difficult. You have to remove/loosen some of the assembly covering the coil pack to get it out. 2 - getting it back in is harder, because you can't see well in the back of the engine.

Coil pack only firing 2 cylenders


I'd add the information on how to test the coil packs yourself to make it a more complete thread...

QUOTE
How to verify if your coil packs work!
Engine worked with: 1996 maxima
Requires: An ohmmeter (cheap purchase at radio shack....)
Conditions: Make sure your engine is cold, or it'll be hot on your hands
you have 6 Ignition coil packs. 3 up front and 3 near your firewall. (when asking for new ones, they are referred to as L and R)

3 are hidden behind the plastic piece on your engine that says NISSAN... simply remove the bolts and remove the plastic piece.

once removed, you should see 3 coil packs. un plug and test them one at a time.

I won't go into how to remove them since it should be fairly obvious Simply remove both bolts (do one coil pack at a time...) and pull the coil pack out. i had one where it was very hard to get out... so you may have to pull hard...

Once out, look at the area where you removed the electrical plug. You should see a "+" on the back end of the electrical plug. There should also be the letter "B"....
the spot where you see the positive symbol, means that's prong number one on the electrical connector.

To test:
Turn on your ohmmeter and place the positive wire on the 1st prong in the electrical plug of the coil pack. The negative wire should be touching the middle prong. Verification of the ohmmeter at this time should say "0" aka infinite... if it's anything else, the pack should be changed. Next test: reverse the wires... positive on the middle prong and negative on the 1st prong.... on a new coil pack, it should give a value of approximately 1.3-1.7 mega ohms. If any of the readings are off, replace the coil pack.

Note: Firewall coil packs are extremely easy to find, simply look in the cracks of the intake header. you'll see 3 similar looking coil packs to the front ones. The exception with these is that they are longer and look a slight bit different. removal is the same process as the front coil packs. Simply pay special attention to not dropping the screws in the intake area... it'll be hard to get out.

to test: follow the front coil pack testing method. Look for the Positive symbol, this is your first prong... and go from there.

Good luck (remember rated this help).
