Could be a fuel problem, change fuel filter, air filter if old, check fuel pump pressure. Also check battery to motor and battery to body ground for corossion. Check condition ofmotor to body ground strap for corossion. Bad grounds can cause all sorts of problems.

Remember, they don't hire rocket scientists at Auto Zone, ask your local dealership for the right part and then purchase the part at another auto store.

I can't get power to the coil in my 84 Dodge Ram truck?


If by coil you mean each individual coil.
Check the power output to the coil through its plug. Do this with a volt meter and check the pins inside the plug. A combination of two pins will result in a voltage being produced. Check the others and take results if the differ youl'll see why.

If its a coil pack that has a ht lead coil.
Check the coil pack terminal output results as above.
Normally if the coil pack is defective you will have two cylinders that a defective on the coil pack.
Al in all being a mechanic check the voltage output to seek results and you see the answer check the leads with a plug out in a lead technic is a good one to see a spark
hope i can help

My '83 320i is in neutral revs up fine, however when I put it in gear it feels like something is holding it back. it's not the clutch. The RPM's crawl up the tach. the engine gets louder but sounds muffled...


the airflow sensor is the box like item on the airbox tubing b4 the airbox its self there should be a solid plastic tobe/pipe between 2 rubber 1s with a wiring plug attached this is the airflow meter/sensor

It could be a spark plug, plug wire, or a coil. Sometimes thay break down intermittently. If it needs a tuneup, that would be the first thing to do.
