Why does my 93 Caravan Start fine and run great till it warms up then dies and wont start untill it cools back down.


I had the same problem a few years ago and it was the coil pack breaking down. If it starts missing before it dies id get a new coil pack. Before u buy a coil pack you need to get it warm again and just before it dies look underneath the vehicle to see if the catalytic converter is starting to get hot, if it is hot and usually getting red hot, its stopped up.It will fool you in to thinking that the coil is bad.

My 2001 kia sephia starts but is missing badly


Sounds like a bad coil pack 1 and 3,if you change it and it's no help,see if you can find the vacuum hose that goes to the fuel pressure regulator, ,if there if fuel in the hose ,it's bad

My husband did a tune up on my car yesterday and now it wont start it will turn over like it wants to start but it wont he said that its miss firing we have bought 3 new coil packs and still will not start...


If your car is miss firing and your husband changed the coil packs,the wires leading from coil packs to sparkplugs must have got crossed.This will change car timing which will result in the car miss firing.He needs to go over wiring and correct problem for car to run right.You can go online to autozone.com and type in Info about car to get the correct wiring layout.Your problem isnt the new plugs n wires.Its the wiring layout.

My saturn sc2 2001 run on 3 cylender when she want. i have changed my coil pack wire spark and spark plug. the computer can cause de problem?


the fuel injectors can be the cause.first you must isolate which cylinder is shutting down. When the engine is missing pull plug wires one at a time to determine which one does not slow or make engine run worse. CAUTION: use rubber handle pliers or rubber glove to pull wires off plugs.

flashing engine light means engine misfire. let car idle and mist the plug wires down with water, rev the engine up and down and look for little sparks jumping from the wires. and arcing wires can cause problems. before changing any bad wires check the coil packs where the wires plug in the three small boxes on the top back of motor. they are three packs with two wires each. one pack at a time take the two wires off to reveal the coil towers. have an assistant start the motor and make sure the spark goes from tower to tower. repeat on remaining two packs. if the spark goes straight down the tower the coil needs replaced. if there is no spark, the coil needs replaced.

Misfire in two cylinders


Check to see if the two cylinders misfiring are on the same coil pack. If so, change the coil pack in question.

This happened to me on 1997 Cadillac Deville Limousine.

Also, check for a blown head gasket with compression test.

check or relace your coil pack due to the fact that when a coil pack is going bad it usually looses its umph. when it get hot and that would explain random miss fires

2001 pontiac cowl pack not fireing.


Here is a diagram of the firing order for you 3800 engine. Cylinders 1 and 4 are misfiring because the operate under the same "Coil Pack" and the coil pack has unfortunately gone bad. O'Reilly sells them for between $30-50 depending on the amount of warranty coverage you want. To replace, simply unscrew the screws that hold the coil pack in place. WAIT before unplugging the plug wires. Place the old coil pack and new coil pack next to each other, unplug one plug wire, then plug it to that same port on the new coil pack. then do the same for the other plug wire. Then screw your new coil pack in place, and start you car. should run fine!
