Coil no power mitsubishi galant 4y 2006 im change timen belt bot no power in evry coil and chang cam shaft sonsor

Did you forget a ground wire attachment? Recheck your engine grounds.
Each coil should get power on the black/white from the ignition switch, constant battery voltage. Does it? If not, check fuse 24, a 10 amp fuse in the Junction Block. Power travels from the ignition switch (in ON, RUN, or START) to this fuse, and then is spliced to each coil. Other than that, the PCM controls the current switching for the coils (for spark). The other wire from the coil (black?) goes to the pcm for earthing the primary current to the coils.

If the coils have power but no spark, it could be the crankshaft position sensor. I believe the crank sensor would be more important than the camshaft sensor for the pcm to figure spark timing.

Power to coils, no spark, just cranks, new coil pak,cam and crank sensor

It seems to me, by your comments that your engine may out of sinc with the ECM. This is almost worst case-scenario, so dont worry. You mention no spark? That is almost for sure the computer (ECM) but what led you to buy all these things. was the car running before you replaced or moved these items. I will need more info of what transpired before your resulting discovery. Please advise, GE

On spark

If it where the crank sensor there would be no injector pulse also. If it where the cam sensor you could have unplugged it and see if the car started. I think this one may have a simpler solution. Have you checked for power to the coils? Have you checked the coil fuse or the ECM relay?

Engine cranks over but no fuel being pumped plus no power to fuel pump. No spark to the spark plug. I put new crank positioning sensor, new cam sensor, changed computer, checked fuel pump relays. Car...

Did you check your coil pac? This supplys power to all parts of your auto. I would check and see if your getting fire comming from your coil , Good luck to you.

Wont Start - No Spark

Older VW's and Audi's are notarious for this type of behavior. You actaully need a Vag or good diagnostic tester to tell you which plugs are mis-firing. You will need to replace a coil-pac or two. VW's issued a recall notice about 3 months ago about this issue and intends to re-imburse owners on certain models and years for coil-pac repalcement. After market coil-pacs should cost less than $50.00 each. Hope this helps.
