2001 geo metro is firing orange from all coils, it's getting gas and the timing and compression is good


You have a problem with your coil packs . One of them is bad likely the main one . The spark should be blue and have a good snap sound . Look for bad connections to the coils and oil leaking from them . Its wireing or a bad coil its to hadr to be more specific with out seeing it

Im sorry,its a 1997 ford 302 (1997 mercury mountaineer) codereader indicates 'no. 7 cylinder misfire'


remove the #7 spark plug if it does not look fouled start the vehicle with the plug still connected and look at the ground electrode for any spark it should be a white arc which indicates a high intensity spark if its orange/red it is a weak spark. If you get a poor spark try removing any other spark plug and test it on the #7 coil wire If you still get a poor spark then your plug wire or ignition coil is to blame and would need to be replaced. You can swap your plus wire to test it in the same way as well. hope this helps
