2003 buick lesaber new coil pack . still no spark what do I trouble shoot next??????


Did you really replace all 3 coils?
Did you have the check engine light on? You should have the code scanned if it was on to tell you what was at fault.

If you didn't have a check engine light indicate that you had a problem, it seems this problem could have been diagnosed without paying for an unnecessary part by going to a certified shop and having an electronic diagnosis.

Other than a coil pack, the vehicle needs a computer to control the spark. That's what the ignition control module (ICM) is.

You did replace all the wires you disconnected, didn't you?

I have a 91 Chevy Lumina, just replaced the injectors and all the coils on saturday and ran fine but when driving it would have trouble it seemed shifting, starting today when you hit the gas the car dies...


Your ignition spark control module is going bad,your coils pack are located right underneth them. this is what tells your coils packs to produce spark to your spark plugs. they are easy to replace just make sure you mark you coil pack with some tape and make sure you put them back in the same order as they came off the spark control module. Easy to replace,just make sure you use the proper size torx or socket size on the screw heads...

Car mont start. does not turn over


You need to find out if the problem is related to spark, fuel, or air. First thing - when you turn the key to full electrical power (right before you crank the engine), do you hear the fuel pump kick on? It's a slight whirring sound behind you, and lasts about two seconds. If not, check the fuel pump relay (blue relay in the driver's kickpanel), and check the fusebox to be sure the fuse isn't blown.

If you hear the pump come on, chances are the rest of your fuel system is probably OK (the Z isn't known for common failures of the fuel pressure regulator or leaking injector O-rings). Time to turn to the spark side of the equation.

Unbolt a coilpack (look between the runners of the intake manifold and remove the two 12mm bolts you see, which secure a bracket - that's the coil pack bracket). Pull the coil pack out and remove the spark plug. Put the plug into the coil pack, make sure the coil pack connector is plugged in, and have someone crank the key for just a second, while you hold the coil pack with the spark plug ground touching the manifold. If you have spark, you'll see it flash. If you don't see a spark, there's a very good chance that the power transistor unit (PTU) is dead. This was the one and only recall on the Z32. It's a small black box on the front of the engine, passenger side, bolted to the upper timing cover. It has a 6-7 wire harness coming into one side, and going out the other side. If it dies, your car won't start until it's replaced.

If neither spark nor fuel is the problem, then clean or replace the mass airflow sensor. Also, have the cam position sensor checked (this is the round metal device on the driver's side timing belt cover) - that thing is the root of all Z evil and can cause many different problems with these cars.
