Not normally, the wires should still be good, maybe replace the plugs because of the age of the vechicle not because of the mileage.

My 1997 Suzuki Sidekick 1.6 liter doesn't always start. When it does it runs great. I was told to check the ignition coil but I can't find one. Can I get a photo or a descriptive location from somebody?

I can't find the manual between my docks, but most ignition coils look like this and there are 2 pic's explaining how there work.
But don't start replacing things when you are not sure it is defect. You could try to clean all contacts. Remove all oxidation. (not with sharp tools, because the oxidation will run much faster then)

I have a 1996 RAV 4, but it won't start when the air is damp or it has been raining, it only starts when we've had a few dry days, & although I don;t drive it when started, if it's damp again the

no mileage state, nor from last full tune.
it needs a tuneup this decade.
oldest story on earth (cars) (bad spark)
no ignition parts (high voltage) last the life of any engine,. 300k+
so we do what is called a full tuneup at about 60,000 miles.
also called doing the 60k service point list.
open glove box, take out operators guide, yes, really
turn to the 60k page. bingo.

high voltage breaks down all the insulation,
over time.
even your power company must do this. or BOOM,
Have 2 dead friends from BOOM. 17kv distra. systems.

no engine stated so can not be specific.
my guess, is tghis.
The third-generation 3S-GE was produced from 1994 to 1999.
1996 is a big change year, OBD2
and from Distributor spark to none, at Aug, 1996 they swiched
to the DIS system. with a wasted spark coil pack only.
replace the HV wires, and spark plugs.
end story.

if the scan tool shows, P030x errors. fix X
if x is 2 cylinders it might be a bad coil pack,(last thing to replace)

there are 3 spark systems , at this evolution
Distrubutor with internal coil.
wasted spark coil under TB, with 4 HV wires.
and coil over plugs, later, called COPS, 4 coils.

yours may be wasted spark system with 4 HV wires,. replace them.
show a photo of the engine, and i can ID it. in 1 second.

good luck.

My Pt hesitates when it starts and the acceleration is not as powerful as it use to be mechanic told me to replace coil. What are the symptoms of a coil going bad? What else could it be?

This does not sound like a bad coil. I would check the fuel pressure first. How many miles and have you ever replaced the fuel filter? Replace the filter if it has been more than 60K since it was last changed. The chances of this being the problem go up as the mileage increases. If this doesn't fix the problem well it needed to be done anyway. Let me know and I can continue to help if needed. Thanks and please rate.

1998 vw jetta turns over but won't start check engine light on

The coil pack on these are bad about being defective. You need to check to see if you have power coming from your coil pack. If you do not try changing it out, this produces 60k +/- volts that goes through your ignition wires, to your spark plugs and ignites the gas on combustion with the piston. If it's not giving off a spark, thenyou're not getting power to fire off the engine.

Engine light goes on

I've had this problem for the past year. I've had the PCV recall (TSB # 2204H) issue fixed. . German Mazda dealer said it was the Ignition Coils so I replaced all the Spark plugs and all 6 Ignition Coils and I still had the problem. In another posted Tech Service Bulletin it specifically addressed this concern. TSB # 01-023/05 , Engine Misfire Detection Procedure . Basically, the Mazda maintenance crew has to scan it for Misfires and then if this is the problem, fix it in accordance with the Mazda Workshop Manual (section 01-03 No. 11). I'm statoned in Germany, so it's been a real pain and I'm still trying to get this problem fixed. Should be easier stateside. Hope this helps.
