Chances are it is the coil although it sounds pricey its really not there pretty cheap and easy to replace if you have a volt meter try ohming it to see if anything comes out put one test led on the post for the plug wire and the other test led on the input thats one the coil try a few different ohm settings and see what happens or if you can take it off your self take it to a auto parts store and have them test it.

I have a misfiring problems with cylinders 1 and 6. Which ignition coil do i need to change?


Ignition coil one and six or course.The 3.7L uses separate ignition coils for each cylinder. The one-piece coil bolts directly to the cylinder head. Rubber boots seal the secondary terminal ends of the coils to the top of all 6 spark plugs. A separate electrical connector is used for each coil.
Because of coil design, spark plug cables (secondary cables) and a distributor are not used.
Two knock sensors (one for each cylinder bank) are used to help control spark knock.
The Auto Shutdown (ASD) relay provides battery voltage to each ignition coil.
The ignition system consists of:
² 6 Spark Plugs
² 6 Separate Ignition Coils
² 2 Knock Sensors
² Powertrain Control Module (PCM

I have no spark for 91 grand am. ignition control module or ignition coil?


You have 3 coils located on top of the ignition module with 2 spark plug wires to each. Usually on that vehicle only one coil dies at once. But if you have no spark at all the ignition module would be the usual problem. There are a couple other unlikely things that can also cause this problem but it will require a repair shop to diagnosis them.

1988 Jeep Wrangler starting problems. I replaced the ignition module, spark plug wires, coil, distributor module, and my jeep will not start. It gets fuel, turns over, but still not starting. It is a 1988...


you are saying it is getting spark, and fuel, right? If it is getting spark, and fuel in to the throttle body, check compression-make sure the Mass Air Flow sensor is plugged in, and double check your spark-you say you replaced all those ignition items, but do not say that you have spark.

1988 grand marquis won't start 305 cid v-8 fi


Hello,

Put on a "spark box" into your ignition. I have a Mallory HI-Fire 6A (?) and the car starts and runs good. You will also get better gas mileage and pass smog test.

1990 dodge b350 no spark


Yes you most likely have a ign module problem, the pickup hardly ever fails. If the truck is really hi miles repace the plug wires as well.

I'm not getting any spark to the plugs. Wondering if it is the ignition coils.


I have the same problem... I replaced the distributor, distributor cap, button,control module, Ignition coil and even put a ignition/start switch on it.... and it finally fired up after the coil.. BUT..... it died 2 days later and i took the coil back for an exchange and it worked.... BUT.... it died on me when the truck warmed up and still does... Someone told me to check the CAMSHAFT POSITIONING SENSOR... makes sense so im gonna try that tomorrow and hope for the best.
