    Simplest way to know for sure is if you have spark plug wires, you have one coil feeding a distributor. If you don't have individual spark plug wires leading to each cylinder, then you'll have one coil sitting atop each spark plug, for a total of eight coils. Have a look and see.

Power surge when engaging starter


If you short the bat terminal to the ign terminal, does the engine crank? (make sure it won't roll if stick or auto) This is a piece of cake circuit. Auto has a neutral safety switch that keeps it from cranking if everything else was checked. Driver side of trans, 4 wires connector near steering column on outside of firewall.

I have a 1995 chevy corsica 2.2 4cyc. The car turns over but will not start.


Yellow spark is usually a sign of a faulty coil, but you have two.
So if the coils are not the problem, it could be not enough voltage to the coils or something else.
The coil fires when the ground connection is removed, in your case the coil fires two cylinders at the same time.
I would check battery voltage to the coils thru the module next.

No start on old gasoline forklift engine.


most likely the ign switch is ok if you are getting spark. so you have a hot spark at coil and weak fire at plugs? if you have a test light check the positive side of coil for power when turning key on and cranking. if it is dropping power on positive side then ign switch could be bad. can "hotwire" coil by jumping a wire to positive side of coil to pos of battery this will eliminate ign switch.

2004 MARANO WILL NOT START WITHOUT A SPARKPLUG OUT OF THE CYLINDER.YES MUST HAVE THE PLUG ANY PLUG ONE PLUG OUT IT WILL START.


This is caused through a few things
1,Spark not strong enough when trying on all cylinders A get ign coils check out ,as it needs a build up in the coils to boost the next one to fire when hit by charge of 12 volts not 11.5 volts as a plug out also gives a quicker spin.
2'.Loss of compression on all cylinders which would be when you get the compression checked out should be about 160 psi and yours might be 100 psi which will also cause the problem.
3 .Check injectors as they might not have enough squirt untill slightly warm.
But would start with the power to coils first as the power to coils must be constent 12v So check it out and let me know. Ron
