    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.

How do i fix a misfire on cylinder 1 of a 2015 Dodge Dart Aero?


It's either electrical, fuel related or mechanical. Start by checking condition of spark plug and IGN coil. If they check out, check fuel injector for clogging. If that works, do a compression and cylinder leak down test

My Kia Rio is missfiring and the engine light is on


How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? If cylinder miss-fire, the code should tell you which cylinder, unless it is po300. If you can identify which cylinder, then check fuel--spark--compression on that cylinder.

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.

Spark Plug Location for 2004 VW Passat 1.8


on top of engine, remove each 4 ign coil

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.
