Sounds like a primary ignition problem, start at your ignition control module, if thers proper voltage to your coil (11.45 to 12.00 volts) check the primary and secondary coil resistance (refer to manual) if the coil is outside the disributor a simple spark tester will work. if no spark or resistance is not with in range replace the coil, if spark or resistance is in range proceed to check disributor cap and rotor for cracks, mositure, or corrosion. if every theing is fine there check the it could be the crank shaft sensor or ecu.

Oil smells like gas

Sounds like the engine has been flooded with gas due to excessive cranking which drained past the cold piston rings into oil crankcase. You have fuel & air but you do not have spark. 3 things come to mind: spark plugs, spark plug wires and ignition coils. Coils are on top with spark plug wires coming off them. Best of luck.

Weak power,shaking engine ,engine light blinking,even in neutral

The check engine light can come on for many different reasons. There is only ONE reason for it to flash or "blinking" because excess or un-burned fuel is going into the exhaust and WILL damage the catalitic converter. The weak power and engine shaking is because not all cylinders in the engine are working. Most common causes are tune-up related. If you have a spark plug that does not work ( creates a spark to ignite the fuel which makes the engine run) this unburned fuel will go into the exhaust where the catalitic converter is located.This unburned fuel will cause excessively high temperatures in the converter and Will damage it. The most common reasons for no spark at the plugs- worn or defective spark plugs, spark plug wires or ignition coil. Hope this helps

Shuts down for no apparent reason ?

Three possibilities come to mind (not sure what you mean by switch plate assembly). Ignition coil, pickup coil and ignition module. When it stalls you'll have to check to confirm there is no spark. If there is none you'll have to replace one component at a time until the problem is solved. Testing is difficult under these circumstances. If there is spark when it stalls you have a fuel problem.

My outboard motor doesn't idle at low rpm's, it cuts off when put into gear.

Could be several reasons for this, poor quality / dirty gas, restricted fuel line either partially blocked or pinched at some point come straight to my mind.

98 ford mustang spark jumping from coil pack

Hi there:
Misfire is a common driveability problem that may or may not be easy to diagnose, depending on the cause. A misfiring cylinder in a four-cylinder engine is, pardon the pun, hard to miss. The loss of 25 percent of the engine power output is the equivalent of a horse trying to run on three legs. The engine may shake so badly at idle that it causes vibrations that can be felt in the steering wheel and throughout the vehicle.

Basically, it's one of three things: loss of spark; the air/fuel mixture is too far out of balance to ignite; or loss of compression. Loss of spark includes anything that prevents coil voltage from jumping the electrode gap at the end of the spark plug. Causes include worn, fouled or damaged spark plugs, bad spark plug wires or even a cracked distributor cap. A weak coil or excessive rotor gas inside a distributor would affect all cylinders, not just a single cylinder.

Lean misfire can occur when the air/fuel mixture is too lean (not enough gasoline in the mixture) to burn. This can be caused by a dirty, clogged or inoperative fuel injector; air leaks; or low fuel pressure because of a weak pump, restricted filter or leaky pressure regulator. Low fuel pressure would affect all cylinders rather than an individual cylinder, as would most air leaks. A leaky EGR valve can also have the same effect as an air leak. In fact, if a vehicle has one or more misfire codes and a P0401 EGR code, the fault is likely carbon buildup under the EGR valve.

Loss of compression means the cylinder loses most of its air/fuel mixture before it can be ignited. The most likely causes here are a leaky (burned) exhaust valve or a blown head gasket. If two adjacent cylinders are misfiring, it's likely the head gasket between them has failed. Also, if an engine is overheating or losing coolant, it's likely the head gasket is the culprit.

Intermittent misfires are the worst kind to diagnose because the misfire comes and goes depending on engine load or operating conditions. They seem to occur for no apparent reason. The engine may only misfire and run rough when cold but then smooth out as it warms up. Or, it may start and idle fine but then misfire or hesitate when it comes under load. Also, it may run fine most of the time but suddenly misfire or cut out for no apparent reason.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

My 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.2L will turn over, but will not start.

Hi Stan:
I have the same model and engine, nice SUV; I suggest that first thing we need to find out is if it is fuel or spark related. If you could put a spark plug in one of the plug wires then wrap a piece of wire around the threaded part of the spark plug and attach the other end of the wire to the negative terminal of the battery. Now have a helper crank the engine over and see if the spark plug has spark coming from it. Check the spark to make sure it is consistant and not a speratic spark such as you would get if the crank sensor was failing or the timeing got off for some reason.

For the fuel side you will need a fuel pressure gage that you would hook up to the schrader valve on the fuel rail and turn the key to run and see what the fuel pressure is. Then while cranking the engine over see what the fuel pressure is. You can get fuel pressure gages at your local auto parts stores for pretty cheap, you just want to make sure the one end is made to screw onto a schrader valve.

Also, is the check engine light on indicating there are fault codes set in the computer?

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

I was on my way to a friends house when my 97 jetta gt just died, towed it back to the house did looked some stuff up and i was told the tps went bad, come to find out my year of jetta dont have one, and...

Im not there but the best advice I can offer is to proceed in a methodical way to find out what is happening. The car will not run if it does not have a spark, if it does not have fuel or if it does not have compression. You must find out which of these three things is missing. Pull off a spark plug wire and hold it close to a ground point on the engine and see if a spark jumps to the ground. Use an insulated pliers of course. If you have spark spray a little starting fluid in the aircleaner and see if it runs for a second or two. This way you can isolate your problem to ignition related issues or fuel related issues. Does the engine sound normal when it spins over? If it doesn't maybe the timing belt jumped or broke. There are lots of reasons out there that could be why it stopped but start by isolating the problem. let me know what you find.
