it sound like you have a bad crank sensor when the sensor gets hot it open circuits inside the sensor and you loose spark if you have access to a noid light see if you are loosing injector pulse also if so then you know its a good chance its the crank sensor

SOURCE: mercedes c200 elegance 1996 model mis-firing on cylinders 1-4

I beleive your firing order is 1 3 4 2. 1 and 4 are companion cylinders-meaning the piston is up or down at the same time i.e. compression and exhaust stroke both pistons are up and even on the exhaust stroke the ignition fires in order to burn unburnt fuel/ h ve you checked your trigger. There is a good coil testing tool that is placed over the coil and has a magnetic pickup that allows you to see if the coil is being triggered-just because you have power doesn't mean that you will have spark. I would replace your ignition wires and look at your wiring harness very carefully- if it is very brittle and you see bare wires exposed that is your most likley problem because the trigger is working for 1 and 3 and has the crank senser input for all for spark plugs and the cam senser is used for ignition advance and your fuel injection system. try wiggling your harness and see if your coils start to work. wireharnesses are a major problem on mercedes benz vehicles of that era. I hope I have been helpful

SOURCE: 1993 buick park avenue ignition spark issue.....my

the problem has to be wireing.checking with an ohm meter will not tell you for sure how much current the wier will carry so you need need to find where it starts and ends and disconnect bothe ends.put a jumper to ground in one end then hook a test light to your positive battery terminal,put in the other end of the harness and see if the light is bright or dim.

Replaced coils, wires and plugs, condensers still not firing number 5 cylinder. Even switched coil packs still no fire.all other cylinders firing.


Broken wires , break close to the back of the plug. If the wires are good. Check compression for that cylinder.

My 3800 v6 engine is running very bad as if only on 4 cylinders after degreasing it at car wash 6 hours ago .engine shudders under exceleration and vibrates .


There is a good chance that you might have gotten a coil pack or the DIS module wet and the engine is not firing on all cylinders. If the problem does not clear up when everything is completely dry, check for spark on all cylinders. One coil pack fires 2 cylinders and I bet you have one not firing.

Fiat Palio 1.2 firing order


didnt change them 1 by one, you bad boy.

id get the real engine name and google that or buy the FSM book.
at FIAT.

1.2 F.I.R.E engine.
comes in 2 favors
  • 8v SMPI VVT (2007 - current)
  • 16v SMPI (1998 - 2009)
most non boxer engines, are 1,3,4,2 (but this is pcm job not you )
google shows
IT'S WASTED SPARK SYSTEM !
google hit #1
It's cast into the cylinder head. Look across from the passenger side of the car- you'll see 2314 just above the coils.

sounds like this engine is with a COIL pack, You never said.
and with a twin pack , all 4 bangers are wasted spark.
so 2nd 3 fire on one coil (in series) and 1and 4 fire in tandom.
but the PCM sets order. not you,
it only needs to have to pack wired right.
and is clearly marked on most better made coil packs
did you look first.?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
one more google poster , no FSM. shows
coil towards the front of the car is cylinder 2 and 3
coil towards the back of the car cylinder 1 and 4
as shown below

make sure you have the plugs to the coils the right way round thou i

4 ----[o]4
1 ----------------[o]1
2 ------------[o]2
3 --------[o]3

-----------------------------------------------------------------
me.....
when the PCM fires coil 1/4 , it better be wired to 1 and4 or
it will not run. (ir shakes like a wet dog)
simple as can be.

yes, the front cylinder is #1
now where is front. you say?, that be, on the crank pulley end.
not the clutch.side.

if still confused a drawing is easy to make.
1sparkfront, to 1 coil
2 spark to coil 2
3 spark to coil 3
4 spark to coil 4. rear cylinder is 4.
1,2,3,4 front to rear.

05 Ford Escape, coils #3 & #4 not firing. We've replaced the battery, spark plugs, alternator, coil packs, & pcm. Had pcm reflashed. Garage said it had to be coil packs, but just replaced coil packs 3


Check engine light on ? Code's ? What engine ? 2.3 l 4cylinder or 3.ol v-6 This vehicle has coil on plug ignition system , not coil packs ! a coil per cylinder . If new coils an still has no spark , has no B+ voltage to the coil or the PCM isn't controlling them . Without testing i'd only be guessing as to the problem .If the repair shop you had it to can only say it had to be the coils , I'd find another shop to take it to !

MISFIRE ON CYLINDER 4 AND 6 WITH AN ENGINE LIGHT ON


Check the coil packs on the plug if equipped with that type, or the coil packs at the end of the spark plug wires, if so equipped.

Also, check that the fuel injectors are firing on all 8 cylinders.

Definitely, check out what other codes are stored in the computer besides a missing condition.

I have a 1999 Expedition that had a miss on a cylinder, and it turned out to be a bad coil pack. You have 2 cylinders missing, so I would check each cylinder for good spark, or replace the coil packs as necessary to see if that resolves the problem.

Good luck on this repair.

Does coil pack in cylinder four fire plug in cylinder one


no, if you have a coil pack, and one cylinder is not firing then you will need to relace coil pack, if you have individual coils (coil over plug) the you can just replace the coil associated with that cylinder.
