Possible cause would be no fuel to injectors. turn the key to the on position and listen for the fuel pump to come on and pressurize the fuel rail. If you do not hear the pump come on then look in the fuse/relay box for a blown fuse/relay. If you hear the fuel pump come on then turn the key off after the pump has completed running and disconnect the negative cable from the battery. Go to the fuel rail and there will be a round test port,remove the black plastic cap(like a valve stem cap on a tire) using a shop towel partly cover the port. Using a very small screw driver press down on the valve stem, if the fuel comes out at a high volume then the pump and filter is ok. If not then replace fuel filter, that is if you heard the pump come on in the first place. If you never heard the pump come on and the fuse/relay was ok then the pump will have to be replaced. hope this will help you.

2004 chrysler van 3.8 motor replaced coil pack still doesnt fire number 4 cylinder


If the coil pack has a four wire connector, one wire is primary voltage, the other three wires are ground, one ground for each coil, one coil fires two spark plugs. If problem with coil or ground, you would lose spark for two spark plugs. Did you visually check for spark, everywhere? What about the spark plug wire or the spark plug, itself?

Engine is shakeing really bad


This is typical of a mis-fire. Check the spark plug wires to se if they are all connected and ensure they have no cracks or wear. Secondly, check the distributor cap and rotor for excessive wear and replace if so. Third, change the spark plugs. If this doesnt work it could be a mis-firing fuel injector.

Replaced the CDI unit, new spark plugs, but still one spark plugs will not function, only the three spark plugs is running. why?


Mark the one not firing. Now swap it out with one that fire. Does it fire now. If No then you will need a new CDI.If it doesnt then you have a wire issue. also check spark plug wires.

It turns over just doesnt fire up


WELL IF IT TURNS OVER BUT DOESN'T RUN YOU MAY HAVE A NO FIRE CONDITION, NO FUEL CONDITION, OR A FUEL/AIR METERING ISSUE. IN ORDER TO CHECK TO SEE IF YOU HAVE SPARK, TAKE A SPARK PLUG OUT AND CONNECT IT BACK TO THE PLUG WIRE AND HAVE SOMEONE TURN IT OVER IF YOU ARE GETTING A SPARK THEN IT MOST LIKELY IS A NO FUEL ISSUE.

The " FIRE" doesnt come to the coil from any of those things you have changed.......The "fire" comes from the coil TO those items!!!! Good luck, RC
