Aside from coils being of low quality (internal transistor doesn't sustain the flyback voltage and shortens) or incompatible with the engine (wrong connector pinout) the only possibility I can see is fried ECU output - it keeps ignition signal high which turns the transistor inside the coil on and keeps it on. This will cause the effect you're describing in a matter of seconds. Any of the cylinder is got loose and this is making the spark.Remove and reconnect all injectors back.Clean it properly before reconnecting.And connect it to the proper positions.Then check.If still the same problem then this problem is related to Ecu.Its making the coil to get melted. Get the car scanned by local car service center. Thanks.

Po301 number one plug on block 2003 ford windstar v6

the code means a misfire has been detected it could be a few things so check for (a) take out the plug/s and check the boots for cracks by flexing the boot back n forth and by squeezing it the littlest crack will leak voltage from + to the - and thus a misfire (b) a antifreeze leak that is running down into the cylinder will show a wet plug === instant misfire (c) to much dielectric grease on the plug wire boots will liquefy and run down the plug from a running hot motor====instant misfire (d) cracked insulator on the plug (porcelain white part)====instant misfire(e) plug wire insulation is burned or melted ==== instant misfire (f) coil towers has a hairline crack here's one /or the plug is broken on the inside you must use a magnifier glass to find them and this is best for all crack finding issues anything you suspect in the slightest crack is definitely the cause (g) dirty injectors will do it too so you see it's not as easy as you may think please post back with progress and all symptoms still present after work done I'm a 40 year taxi/regular mechanic and every thing will be done for you till we get there even at 3 a.m. we'll get to the cause stephen

96 chevy truck, fuel pump relay switch (located under the hood, driver's side wheel well) keeps shorting out and melting fuse panel

I would replace the fuel pump and the fuel pump connector, both have problems in this year that cause excessive current draw and blow the fuse and overheat the system. If the relay socket terminals are discolored from heat that must be replaced as well. Of course before replacing any parts have a GM dealer confirm the problems i have guessed are to the cause.

I have a 96 isuzu rodeo,3.2 and the brakes will lock up on their own, gradually then it takes about 15 minutes for them to release, any thoughts?

this could be caused by a few things, first you need to jack the truck up you will need all 4 wheels off the ground, put the transmission in neutral and have some one get in the truck and wile turning each wheel have the person in the truck push the brake pedal the wheel should stop instantly then have the person release the brake the brake should release instantly,( do this to each wheel ) if all brakes remain locked ( wont release instantly ) then replace the master cylinder if the both rear brakes wont release instantly replace the brake hose from the frame to the rear differential, if the both front brakes wont release replace master cylinder, if only one front brake wont release open the bleeder on that brake caliper if the wheel releases replace the caliper hose if the brake still wont release with the bleeder open replace the caliper, you should replace the caliper and brake hoses as a pair.

Liberty 3.7l, stalled and would restart. Has had new cam and crank sensor. Was checking crank sensor and ASD fuse blew. Replaced fuse and continued to crank ove, smelled something hot, found #3 coil was...

Well, some things need to be done systematically. Check for spark to make sure the coils are in fact working. Check for fuel to make sure you don't have a bum fuel pump and/or plugged filter. Ignition coils will get hot. The very fact that it melted may be the sign of a computer issue. Let me know what you find and then we can move forward.

96 Sunfire overheating after replacing radiator, pump, thermostat

Do you did you take out the rad. or have a shop do it for you. Your problem sounds more like the rad is not the right size for your car. The difference is very slight. The rad for a 4 CYL And the 6 CYL look very much alike. they even interchange with one another. But if your car has the V6 and you are running a 4 cyl. rad you may run hot like this. Now if that is NOT THE CASE, IF THAT IS NOT THE CASE >. You still have air in the rad. Open the drain port a small bit remove the rad cap, start up the engine and let it run till it reaches temp -- tighten the drain port and refill the rad, and the overflow to full. try all that and God Bless.

Same damn thing...

To help cut cost of replacing everything I suggest getting a scanner on the car to find the PC problem.

96 old bravada multiple misfires

I think the problem is more in the plug wires/plugs. Get a long piece of plug wire, long enough to fit to any plug, and check the plugs, one wire at the time. You'll rule out wires and find the bad one if there is one.

Simplest way? Go to your nearest Autozone, and ask to hook up their portable handhelt and check your engine.

Bet it is plugs and/wires. You checked two with no response? Replace those!
