Remove your valve cover and have someone try to crank it over while you watch the camshaft to see if it turns, your timing belt may have jumped a tooth ( causes bad running and back fire ) and then broke

I also agree it might be your timing belt, but since your car is dohc your valves might have bent so remove the head and hve a machine shop fix the head and have a profesional instal it because just by a tooth the head could mess up too

97 neon cranks won't start changed crank cam sensors also the coil pack still no fire to plugs


Possible ASD relay? This is an auto shut down feature for many dodges and can cause a lot of problems. Ensure all fuses are good as well. Just swap a relay from another position into the ASD spot. Use a relay that is not used to start the vehicle.

EF ford on gas cranks but will not fire have changed coil pack and have power to the main loom (plug) to coil pack


Check crank position sensor or cam position sensor if applicable. Is it actually sparking? If so either its not being told when to fire or there is something else telling it there's no fuel etc. Check the relay box for fuel relay etc.

My 1997 jetta vr6 glx does not have spark in number 3 and 4 at the coil. changed the coil and the ecm, still no spark at coil. whats going on?


Check to see if the cam position sensor or the crank position sensor is misaligned or has a corroded connector plug. The ECM needs to get a firing pulse from all cylinders. If the engine is a dual cam and is not attempting to start, some engines have a timing device (chain) for each bank. If the chain broke on one bank, the cam sensor can not possibly fire because the cam is not turning.

No 8 volt supply from pcm


You likely already checked this but how about a broken timing belt. If the cams aren't turning the cam sensor isn't working and the pcm won't fire the plugs.
