    engine turns over very good, gas at carb. it quit when driving home and would not start. After about 5 minutes it started and I drove home (8 Miles). Next morning it started and then quit right away.

    This truck was running great,it is full of gas and fuel pump and carb is fine. quit while driving home,checked out and there is no fire to spark plugs. You can hold them and not even a tickle! That is why i replaced coil,it has new spark plug wires and rotor is in great shape.

    When driving truck home from work it was running great. It is full of gas and carb is fine. After checking it out found there was no fire to plugs. I changed coil and no help. You can even hold plug wire while cranking and not even a tickle. (I know this is not a good way to test)

    Have you replaced the Ignition Module? It sounds like it's a fuel problem. Have you changed Fuel Pump and Fuel Pressure Regulator? Are you check for any intake leak?

    Maybe a bad pick up in the distributor, try another dist cap and rotor make sure all the wires snap in the cap tight should hear them click. Ii would also check all the wiring that has to do with the ignition, especially in and around the coil.

    Tell us news.

Hi! Few things to look at... Please check if the battery has a good charge, check if the engine has good compression and the timing should be set at the right mark. May I ask if the engine cranks? Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

#1 and #4 are not firing I changed the coil pack and still no change any ideas


You said you changed the coil pack and the wires but didn't mention the plugs. Try moving one of the plugs to a different cylinder and see if the miss follows it. It could also be the ignition module. (the thing the coil packs mount to.)

Just rebuilt a 1988 350 corvette motor and put it in a 72 monte carlo! It will not fire it cranks but won't fire! I have changed the coil already a couple of times have juice going into tthe coil but...


It sounds like your points or igniter is not sending a signal to the coil to fire it. I don't know what type of distributor you're using but something has to tell the coil when to fire, or it won't.

I need a coil in #cylender but need to the fireing


If you are triing to find the bad coil simply run the truck and unplug each coil wire connection from each coil one at a time and change the one that dosn't change the way the engine is running.If you have coil over plug type ignition the firing order is controled by the computor and as long as you plug the coils in correctly no firing order is needed.

Motor won't start


You need 3 things for a start condition 1 spark 2 fuel 3 compression. If you have lost spark and have changed wires and coil then you should look at the crankshaft position sensor. This sensor tells the computer when to fire the coil and which plug to fire. Hope this helps. I will check back on the 14th.
