Dear Sir,
As you said coil is getting currant but not sparking further to spark plug , then check few things.

1 Check the connector is proper fitted on ignition coil.

2. No lose connection with pin of connector or pin should not be lose.

3. All pins are clean of connector and no rust is there.

4. Check High Tension cable (cablle black couler which run from ignition coil to spark plug) if found ok then try with new cable if it wont start.

5. It is problem with ignition coil replace it problem will solve.

Problem can solve at any step from 1 to 5 i did arrange all steps by easy to check and less expanses, final step will more expansive than earlier step.if any issue let me know. thanks

My 1995 Toyota Camry is sparking at the distributor at the #4 plug while it s running feels like it wants to turn off but it doesn't.

If this is sparking out of what appears to be unexposed (covered) portions of the spark plug wire replace the wires. It might also be a good time to change the ignition cap and rotor as well. It may be "sparking" out of more places than you know. To test this start the car and watch the under hood in the dark or very low light.

Instructions for replacing the battery in my 2006 Chevy Equinox

take the support bracket that holds battery secure off unloose your cables and twist them while pulling them up. you may need to leave the bracket on then once the cables are loose take the bracket off make sure when you install your new battery that once you put one cable on make sure that the free cable touches nothing metal and also when putting on the last cable try to keep sparking to a minimum.

2000 saab 9 5 wires by what i think is the starter sparking and smoking. area below manifold and has a large wire from battery

Poor connection, bad cable & or faulty starter. Remove battery cables at battery & check for tight, good connection at starter, & tighten if necessary, or replace cable if worn out or damaged, then reconnect battery & try it. Spray penetrating lube on nuts before trying to loosen or tighten. Is there a heat shield missing that should be protecting that area by chance?
