    If you mean the ignition coil in the distributor, then yes it has. It does smell of petrol occasionally, but as soon as it gets up into 3rd and 4th it runs perfectly.

  • sb13127 May 06, 2010

    Ok. I will get that changed and see how we go. Thank you.

  • sb13127 May 06, 2010

    The coils are built in to the distributor on these i've been told.

  • sb13127 May 06, 2010

    I didn't think so either, but it has no centre wire. Toyota said it's built in and expensive.

    The ignition coil is connected to the distributor from the center hole. When the coil starts going not enough spark is generated, your talking about points and condenser.

  • Jason Johnson May 06, 2010

    I have never heard of coils in the distributor. Only ignition modules or points and condensor on anything pre 90's The center wire on the distributor cap goes to the coil which supplies spark to the motor. The rotor rotates and causes spark to each cylinder in the proper order.

  • Jason Johnson May 06, 2010

    Here is a link for your coil.

    If it is inside you should have 2 small wires going under the cap to it.

I have a 1996 chevy Corsica with a code PO300.I have tried many repairs and still cannot repair this code


code p0300 refers to random/multiple cylinder/s ---misfire detected=== causes spark plug/s--HT lead/s--injector/s---ignition coil/s--low compression --wiring
Seeing as you have covered all the electrics, now concentrate on the injectors and fuel pressures
If you will do all injectors and the fuel pressure is where it is supposed to be ( pressure test) then you will have covered all bases
Low compression will be in the one cylinder only ans will remain in that cylinder regardless of injector or plug changes
I would leave that to the last resort as if it is random, it may be a loose valve seat insert that moves randomly causing a compression problem

missing is not always the plugs ,HT leads distributor . Most times it is from misfiring injectors and low fuel pressure.

Cylinder 4 misefire


That leaves the valves and the injector.
If you have normal compression, I would aim for the injector being bad.

My engin seems to be missing, what could be the problem?


It may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

•Faulty spark plugs or wires
•Faulty coil (pack)
•Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
•Faulty fuel injector(s)
•Burned exhaust valve
•Faulty catalytic converter(s)
•Stuck/blocked EGR valve / passages
•Faulty camshaft position sensor
•Defective computer

If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.

The underlying cause of random misfires that jump around from one cylinder to another is often a lean fuel condition, which may be due to a vacuum leak in the intake manifold or unmetered air getting past the airflow sensor, or an EGR valve that is stuck open.

Engine code p0307 miss fire cylinder 7 ? looking for possible other problems. transmission shifting hard at the same time this code appeared.


A code P0300 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • Faulty spark plugs or wires
  • Faulty coil (pack)
  • Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
  • Faulty fuel injector(s)
  • Burned exhaust valve
  • Faulty catalytic converter(s)
  • Stuck/blocked EGR valve / passages
  • Faulty camshaft position sensor
  • Defective computer
Possible Solutions If there are no symptoms, the simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.

I have a 2001 Nissan Sentra 1.8se and I am having problems getting my car to start. When I do it will not accelerate properly. It misses really bad. I have replaced the computer, the mass airflow sensor,...


Check the fuel filter. Do keep in mind that the fuel system is 'always' under pressure!!! Also check EGR. Your fuel pump must be working or it wouldn't start at all. The C02 sensor could be part of the prob. A real bugga to change! But should be changed every year. Do start with the filter, then move on. You have spent enough already! Frankster016
