It does sound like the problem is related to the ignition coil and the distributor, or a loose computer ground wire (usually found at the rear of the cylinder heads), and you should also inspect the distributor cap and ignition rotor for damage. It is most likely the ignition module inside of the distributor, or the pick-up coil inside of the distributor that is causing the problem.

You should be able to replace the ignition module without removing the distributor and some parts stores can even test the ignition module for you.

Be sure to clean the mounting surface inside of the distributor for the new module, and be sure to completely cover the bottom mating surface of the new ignition module with the die-electric grease that should be included with the new ignition module.

My 1992 dodge dakota 318 magnum left bank back 2 cylinders not enough spark


First. That motor sometimes has carbon build up issues. But. Make sure u have good spark plug wires. Not cheap parts house wires. Also no I mean NO Bosch plugs! Anything but Bosch. Then if prob still there check injectors by swapping them to fry two cyl.

Three time in the past six weeks, when I tried starting the car, I got clicking sounds. Eventually, the car started and I was able to drive it without any problems.


sounds like your starter is going out. is your car automatic or manual? sometimes when you turn the key and it just clicks it want to start but not firing. I would do three things and go to auto zone and have your spark plugs checked then have them check your altenator and starter. After doing this it should give you an axact idea on what the problem is before you go and spend money on something you dont need. Narrow it down first then replace it. Mine did that and it was the starter then later after a year did the same thing and this time one of my spark plugs was not firing so it only cost me the plugs the second time. goodluck

I have a 92 camry 4cyl. Won't fire at the sparkplug. Replaced plug wires and plugs, distributor, igniter and still won't fire. Any suggestions?


Take out a spark plug, lay the plug (with the spark plug wire attached)on the engine and turn the motor over, if it sparks, your getting fire, Try each plug, works best a night so you can see the spark.

1992 Buick Century won't start sometimes but has spark in the plugs.


Faulty cam sensor maybe - it controls the injectors. To diagnose, when you get a non-start, spray a V.small squirt of easy-start(ether) and if it runs a little then you have a fuel issue. The spark timing is controlled by the crankshaft sensor so that can be faulty and cause a mistimed spark but usually you'll get a mis-fire in those cases.
