The #1 plug is not firing. It does not seem to be getting fire, if I move the plug to a different cylinder it fires. Any plug I install in the #1 cylinder does not fire.


Most likely the coil for that cylinder is bad. Unfortunately, you can't just replace a single coil - the entire coil pack is a sealed unit.

My cabrio wont start it will crank but not fire


When you squirt water on plug wires and the car stalls, that means that your plug wires are bad. PLUG WIRES (not rotor, cap, or any sensor).
Replace your spark plug wires with new, and you should be fine.

I installed new spark plugs and wires in my 1999 voyager and now it won't start. Van started perfect before installed new ones


What type of plugs are you trying to use? I had a serious performance issue with the 1999 Dakota after putting platinum plugs in it for a tune up . I found out that with the old-style ignition coil and distributor cap setup that there was not a hot enough spark to fire the platinum plugs properly. Went back to the old copper-core OEM plugs and everything ran fine. High performance plugs on a "low performance" ignition system equals major headaches. Here was one case where better wasn't better.

Y is my 97 chevy only fires on the number one cylender


if you have fire on the number one cylinder,it means that the ignition coil is working so your problem can come from spark plug wire or cap and rotor . unplug the wire from ignition coil to distributor and check for fire you are suppose to have fire because you saying having fire on cylinder one. from there change cap of distributor and rotor plus a set a spark plug wire.

Igniter no spark


Try the Pick Up Coil, it's located inside distributor remove rotor and piece that holds rotor in place, it has a small wire coming out of it. If you don't want to deal with the hassle then just replace the distributor, try one from a junk yard see if it works. Good Luck.

NO SPARK PUT A NEW COIL ON DID NOT FIX TOOK IT TO A GSRAGE SAID IT NEEDED A CRANK SENSOR CAM SENSOR WIRES PLUGS DIST CAP AND ROTER RAN ONE DAY NOW THEY SAID A HOLE DISTRIBUTER AND A TIMEING BELT.I REALLY...


If you are sure they said, a distributer cap a roter and a distributer, there is a problem! Because on a 1998
plymouth, there is no distributer or cap or roter.
Your cam sensor along with the crank sensor-temp sensor and a few other sensors, send a signal to the
powertrain control module, that sends a signal to the
coil pack(that you said was replaced) that fires the
spark plug. I would hold off from having any further
work done there, until you can check out what they
say they have already done. Ask if you can have the
old parts they replaced so far. You will want to have
an OBDII scan test done, to see what codes come up. It should have one of the first tests they did.
If I have read your post correctly, have them write an
estimate for what they will replace next. This info. is
based on the car being a 1998 plymouth and not a
1988 I would not wan't to acuse somone of anything
based on a typo. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Have another look at your plug wires, and make sure that you have them in the right order. As you probably know, if the firing order is wrong, you can have problems. That is somewhere for you to start, anyway.
