My cabrio wont start it will crank but not fire


When you squirt water on plug wires and the car stalls, that means that your plug wires are bad. PLUG WIRES (not rotor, cap, or any sensor).
Replace your spark plug wires with new, and you should be fine.

Y is my 97 chevy only fires on the number one cylender


if you have fire on the number one cylinder,it means that the ignition coil is working so your problem can come from spark plug wire or cap and rotor . unplug the wire from ignition coil to distributor and check for fire you are suppose to have fire because you saying having fire on cylinder one. from there change cap of distributor and rotor plus a set a spark plug wire.

I have a '78 thunderbird with a 351m clevland engine i changed out the distributer cap, put the sparkplugs in correct firing order and now it wont start it turns over but its not firing im thinkin


simple things first, did you put the rotor back in ? I would start by connecitng a timing light to one of the plug wires and have a friend turn the engine over and see if the light flashes. (I use a remote starter switch on fords but make sure the ****** is in park) If the light does not flash, connect the timing light to the coil wire. It should flash now. If it does, the plug wires might not be in the correct fireing order. if it does not , the problem should be under the cap if it was running before. if you dont have a timing light, lift the coil wire off of the cap and hold the conductor close to the cap, less than 1/4 inch. Have a friend crank the engine. You should see a blue spark. if you do, repeat with a spark plug wire. If you have spark, the wires are probably wrong. Be careful not to get shocked. It wont hurt you but wont feel good either. If you have no spark and everything is in order and the rotore is installed properly, disconnect the battery and remove the ignition box on the inner fender. Look at the bottom side. If it has an area that looks sandy (literally) replace it. This is common on the duraspark ignition systems.

I changed my distributer cap and rotor, On my 1990 Cherokee 4.0 inline 6 ,I replaced plugs followed 153624 and now it wont start ?? i matched # 1 on the block to #1 on the distributer cap etc .. turns...


if that distributor has ever been out, it may not line up on #1. check to make sure the coil wire is connected tight on both the coil and the cap.

NO SPARK PUT A NEW COIL ON DID NOT FIX TOOK IT TO A GSRAGE SAID IT NEEDED A CRANK SENSOR CAM SENSOR WIRES PLUGS DIST CAP AND ROTER RAN ONE DAY NOW THEY SAID A HOLE DISTRIBUTER AND A TIMEING BELT.I REALLY...


If you are sure they said, a distributer cap a roter and a distributer, there is a problem! Because on a 1998
plymouth, there is no distributer or cap or roter.
Your cam sensor along with the crank sensor-temp sensor and a few other sensors, send a signal to the
powertrain control module, that sends a signal to the
coil pack(that you said was replaced) that fires the
spark plug. I would hold off from having any further
work done there, until you can check out what they
say they have already done. Ask if you can have the
old parts they replaced so far. You will want to have
an OBDII scan test done, to see what codes come up. It should have one of the first tests they did.
If I have read your post correctly, have them write an
estimate for what they will replace next. This info. is
based on the car being a 1998 plymouth and not a
1988 I would not wan't to acuse somone of anything
based on a typo. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Wire hookup to distributer cap.


Wires just pull out of the top of the cap. Do them one at a time and you won't have a problem putting them back.(they just push into each hole.)
