SOURCE: my 1989 grand prix wont fire, i replaced the coil

The crankshaft position sensor is located above the oil pan on the back of the engine block. Look between the oil pan and transmission pan and you will see it on the engine block. I used a 8mm box rachet wrench with flex head. Difficult but not impossible. I tried fixed head box end wrenches but couldn't get them on the nut that hold the sensor in place.

98 mercury villager no start , code P 1320

Here is the entire description for the code -

When is the code detected?When the ignition signal in the primary circuit is not sent to Engine Control Module (ECM) during engine cranking or running.

Symptoms- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

P1320 NISSAN Description The ignition signal from the Engine Control Module (ECM) is sent to and amplified by the power transistor. The power transistor turns on and off the ignition coil primary circuit. This on-off operation induces the proper high voltage in the coil secondary circuit
Possible causes - Faulty power transistor unit built into ignition coil
- Ignition primary circuit is open or shorted (circuit to ignition coils)
- Ignition primary circuit poor electrical connection (circuit to ignition coils)
- Faulty ignition system condenser
- Crankshaft position sensor circuit

help.png Help with this Tech notes The most common cause that will trigger the P1320 code is the ignition coils, one or more ignition coils may have failed. Even tough the coils may be working OK, the resistance for one or more of the coils is greater or smaller that what the Engine Control Module (ECM) is expecting. Measuring the resistance with the coil out of the vehicle may not show any failures, usually the coil fails under heavy conditions (hard acceleration) or certain temperatures.

The P1320 code means that there is problem with the "Ignition Coil" or the wire to the ignition coil. For some models without individual ignition coils the Ignition Coil is inside the distributor and the distributor need to be replaced to fix the problem.

Van idles fine but when going the the road giving it gas it acts as if it isn't getting the proper gas ... it back fires....repleaced fuel filter and pump, crank and cam sensior

sounds like the timing is off. check the firing order to be sure your plug wires are on the correct positions on the coil packs. if that checks out, possibly a timing chain may need replaced. i hope this helps

Ignition coil not sending fire to number 1 and number 4 on 2005 town and country

Sounds like it shorted out. Never worked on a mini-van. I try to avoid them. Does the coil pack plug into a tray, like on a late 90's cadillac? If so that tray needs to be cleaned or replaced. Make sure the terminals in that tray are not shorted across, meaning the power hole isn't touching the ground hole, with anything conductive.

The car motor wont start, the coil is not sending fire to the disterbutor,bypassed the coil to the batery and still no fire to the coil what's the problem?

Hello, Bridget! I am sorry that I couldn't help you sooner but I have been ill.

I got hit by lightening in my home that bruise me up and burnt my feet (this is the third time over 50 years now). Then I got that infamous cantaloupe but which isn't good for ones health.

The ignition system comprises of the van computer, ignition module, coil, distributor with two major component inside of the distributor--high voltage rotators cap, and the module pick-up coil, coil wire, plug wires, spark plugs. Also, all the sensor that are sending different types of signals to the computer, such as; air/fuel mixture, ambient temp, air flow, throttle position, engine temp, ATM pressure, humidity, altitude, barometric pressure, CO2 mixture, vacuum negative pressure, etc. GB...stewbison
