SOURCE: car wont start

these cars go through coil packs regularly as the packs overheat due to their position on the end of the engine. I have 3 lanos and have replaced all coil packs at around 90,000 k's.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: car chugging

To determine what's wrong, u need to have the codes read. If the light is coming on, it is a signal that something is wrong w/ the emissions system. A code is stored in the cars computer that will indicate what the problem is. Most parts stores will read the stored engine codes for free. They plug a scan tool into a port under the dash to retrieve the code(s). Write them down, and ask what u should do to correct the problem. If u have any further questions after that, u can post them here. Let me know how u make out.

There is no test for module in distributor, but they often cause this kind of problem. Also while in there, check the pickup coil wires to make sure they are intact.

    Engine is turning over,but not starting


    first, test for spark at the ignition coil. take the power cable that connects from the ignition coil and disconnect the end at the distributor. hold the bare connecting end a fraction of an inch away from a metal paqrt of the cars frame and attempt to start. if the ignition coil is good, it should throw a spark. if the ignition coil sparks, next check your spark plugs for oil, grime, black or white discoloration on the spark tips (that point inside the engine). if there is a lot of build up or discoloration, replace the spark plugs. if this does not solve it, change your distributor cap, and if this doesnt slove it, change your spark plug wires.

    There is a misfire in my engine, changed plugs & wires. now it reads that the fuel leveling sensor is bad, will this help?


    If there is a misfire, the cylinder that it is misfiring in will be recorded as a code in the computer.

    Have the car scanned to determine which cylinder is bad. Then, replace the coil pack going to that cylinder.

    I think that the coil packs has installed wrong because you said that the problem started when you replaced them... so i think you should re-install.
