1975 f250 with 460 starts but won't run after releasing ignition.

check the voltage of the coil ( stamped on the bottom
if it has 7.5 volts then the problem is the run circuit from the ignition switch to the coil or distributor
It turns over and fires on the start circuit as that is straight 12 volts but when you release the key to the run position it goes through a resistance wire or block to drop it to 7.5 volts or the coil will burn out
with the key in the run position connect a multimeter to the coil wire and read the voltage ( if it is not there you have not connected up the circuit properly
if you have a voltage there and it is 12 volts make sure the coil is a straight 12 volt coil

On the coil how many volt is a coil should have on poistiveside whenswitch is on it have 6.2volt when swith on 12 volt when the ecu is disconnect it have 12 it will not start an run it 318

A standard ignition coil normally generate about 15,000 - 25,000 volt depending the requirement to spark the spark plugs. The input volt should be 12 volt but the amperage should run about 400Va.
So now what is the question?

1993 ford tarus 3.0 engine had weak spark after changed coil fired a couple of times know no spark? any ideas

Using a volt meter disconnect the electrical plug to coil and check with key on to be sure there is at least 12 volt to coils. if not or voltage is low the ignition switch may be bad, have an assistant jiggle the key in ignition while you are looking at the meter to note voltage fluctuations if any are noted ign. switch is bad also check all fuses under dash as wellas in engine compartment.

I was driving and it just died,we now found we do not have any spark on driver side,can you tell me what it may be,or what we should try to fit will not turn over.Thank you sherry

No spark.This is indication of faulty spark plugs.But spark plugs get power to spark from coil pack. So get the connection between coil pack to spark plugs checked.If it checked out ok then its faulty spark plugs that has to be replaced,but if coil pack has no power then its faulty coil pack that has to be replaced.But if coil pack and spark plugs both checked out ok then this problem is fuel related problem.In this case the fuel pressure needs to be checked.The fuel pressure can be easily checked at any local car garage.If its low then its faulty fuel pump as well as clogged fuel filter,which has to be replaced. The voltage for spark plugs and coil pack in voltmeter will show 12 volts.Its a 12 volt part.If there is no or low volt then there is problem with the part. ------------------ Keep updated with any more queries.Thanks.

No 12 volts to ignition coil

on a lot of plymouth acclaims ,there is no fuse marked ignition. what I would do is check for voltage at the ignition switch. if no voltage is going thru it. then the ignition switch is bad. check the wires from switch, and turn key to accy,then check wire. then turn to run and record voltage.

First check to be sure that you have constant +12 volts to your ignition wire (red). Also be sure that there is +12 volts on the yellow wire when the key is in the start and run positions. If both of the above are true, then the problem likely exist in the ignition coil. Replace.

Engine turns over but won't start 2001 Jeep Gr. Cherokee 6cyl

Start with the control module,I think it is located under coil on this model,You have checked the rotor to see if it is turning haven`t you?If it is not you may need a timing chain.

Turns over but won't start up.

Check to see if the distributor shaft is turning. If not, then check the timing belt. Another indication of a broken timing belt is if the engine cranks, but sounds like it has no compression. If the timing belt is good and the ignition timing is set correctly, look to see if you are getting 12 volts to the positive connection on the ignition coil. If that is good but you still don't get spark, you may have a bad electronic pickup assembly in the distributor. If you are not getting 12 volts to the coil with the ignition switch in the run (on) position then you may have a problem with the wiring, ignition switch, or electronic control unit.
