Hello Tom,I had the plugs, wires and coil replaced, but no improvements. Can it be a sensor, or the cam nsor? Im going nuts, and broke.


We all know that feeling, especially the broke part. Stop throwing parts at it. You need a good diagnosis. For "cranks, no start" check fuel pressure and spark. For no spark, use a wiring diagram and understand what is involved. The crank and cam sensors are usually part of the mix. The computer (pcm) uses these sensors to determine spark timing, and often injector timing. Also besides coil, plugs, and wires, and the sensors mentioned, don't forget how the ignition system controls the coils- the ignition control module, or ICM. This little part is often the cause of no spark. But, everything can and should be tested first.

How to Test Spark Plugs in Audi A6 car?


1) Test the spark plug ignition. For that disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug.
2) Then touch the spark plug wire close to a metal surface of the car. Then spin the key in ignition switch. If you will see a spark or hear a crackling noise. This means the wire to the spark plug has voltage in it.
3) If there is no spark when you crack the engine it means that a spark plug wire is dead.
4) Check out all the battery cable, ignition wires and coil wires are hooked up properly to their points.
5) If any of the battery cable, ignition wires and coil wires is loose then this can also relate to no spark.
6) But if all the battery cable, ignition wires and coil wires are properly connected then its time to replace the spark plugs.
7) Before replacing clean the old spark plugs connections and recheck.
8) Many a time’s cleaning or moving the spark plug connections makes it work.
9) If nothing is getting the spark plug to spark, then it needs replacement.
This will help. Thanks.

Wiring from coil to distributor for opel monza 1989


Sadly this is a USA site... and Opel data seems to be pretty scarce on your car...

Simply (generally)... You are looking to see steady battery on your coil.. as the distributer turns it SHOULD BE interrupting ground...

and generating a PRETTY POWERFUL spark...

Use a volt meter and measure for battery = good.

... no battery... back up to the BALAST RESISTOR (if equipped)... measure for battery...
Only now do you need to know the circuit back to your starter switch ("B" and "S" leads).

ELSE...
If you have a clever (preferably smaller/tool (we'll call SPARKY)) assistant... you can convince to hold the spark lead REALLY REALLY close to the spark plug... If SPARKY sees (or feels) a spark move on to the FUEL... FILTER & PUMP.

Sparky would be smarter to pull out the center wire of the distributor cap... that way less likely your assistant will get ENERGIZED...

No spark = possibly bad distributor or coil

Now disconnect the ground side and manually apply rapid ground... test for spark = good coil

Still no spark = bad coil,

There is a tool for that (I'll post it below)...

Now no spark = clean/replace points (& capacitor) or
replace inductor!!

89 mustang gt won't start only has spark when letting the key off


Use a 12 volt test light to check for voltage at the coil with the key turned to start. Connect the test light clip to engine ground and back probe the red wire terminal on the coil. If there is no power there, your problem is your ignition switch. If there is power there, back probe the same wire at the ignition module. If no power at the ignition module, the wire must be broke between the coil and the module. If there is power, the problem may be the engine control module. Let me know if you have questions.
