    Is there any way to be sure of this? The people have replaced 2 of the 3 coil packs and the computer. Had this scanned and no trouble code popped up for the module (probably intermittent)

    Asked for a way to be sure that was what was wrong. Received no reply.

    Bought module, car started right up and then died in the middle of an intersection.

Check if every time it cranks if it seemed uneven or sort of cranks differently or without a consistent pattern. The problem may be with the crank shaft position sensor. It is located in the vicinity of the coil pack. Every time you pull out the cable it resets the system. At times this is accompanied by cranking but no spark on the plugs.

Other than this pulling the plug from the coil pack may also be a coincidence. If voltage is low (lower than 12.7v) the chances of starting is slimmer. Removing your plug may discharge the system. This one may be the least likely cause but it would be best to check up on your battery voltage.

Asd 25a fuse blows every time i crank engine 2001 dodge grand caravan 3.3


Unplug these items,
- coil pack
- the multi wire connector on the back of the alternator
- both oxygen sensors

Install a new fuse and see if it blows when you turn the key on. If it does than there could be a problem with the fuel injectors or the wiring to the injectors or any of the items that where unplugged.

if it doesn't plug the coil pack back in and start the vehicle. If it blows with the coil pack plugged in replace the coil pack.

If it still doesn't blow with the coil pack plugged in and the engine running shut it down and plug in the alternator and start the vehicle. If it blos with the alternator plugged in replace the alternator.

Continue the same steps with the O2 sensors if needed.

If you have any questions let me know and I'll be happy to help. Thank you for using Fixya.com!

Direction on how to replace coil pack 1988 pontiac grandam


The coil pack rests on the back of the engine, under the intake manifold. Make sure the engine is cool. Follow the plug wires to their ends and you'll see the coil pack. Mark the wires with tape and number them 1-4 so you know the order the plug wires are in. You'll need to remove the entire ignition pack to replace the coils. Three 10 mm bolts hold it in place. Remove the marked plug wires from the pack, unplug the two wire connectors. I worked the pack out from underneath the care. There is a crank sensor on the back of the unit - be careful not to break it as you remove the unit. Take the pack to a table and remove the 4 small nuts that hold the coils in place. Clean all the connectors and apply some dielectric grease to all the electrical connectors. Add some grease to the o ring on the crank sensor and clean all the other parts. The 4 bolts that hold the coils on can only be replaced by pulling the entire unit. Install the new coil spade connectors into the base, being careful to align them properly. Snug down the 4 small nuts that hold the coils on while holding the bolts that secure them with your fingers until the get tight - be careful that the bolds fit into the recesses that hold them squarely. Replace the unit in the car as you removed it with the three 10 mm bolts. Be sure to follow the numbers on your plug wires as you replace them. Reconnect the two wire connectors after cleaning the contacts. Replace the ground to the upper right bolt of the pack. Now would be a good time to replace the plugs and plug wires as well! Took me about 2.5 hours.

Ok odds are you just need a routine tune up. Plugs, fuel filter, air filter. Now this engine uses coil packs i think, so you wont have normal plug wires. The coil packs are individual and sit directly on the plugs. So it is possible you have a bad coil pack. These engines were known to have this problem in excess. So try the cheap fixes first. plugs, fuel filter...these two is the best two to try first.. The air filter wont cause a bad miss unless it is completely dobbed up. so just for your own good to change the air filter.Now if neither the plugs or fuel filter fixes this car try this. Each coil pack will have an individual plug on top of them. So listen closely to your engine. Unplug each coil pack one at a time, Now evry time you unhook a plug the engine should miss, so unplug one at a time, and if the engine does miss they are working properly. Now if you unhook one of these and there is no change in the idle of your engine, my friend you have found the problem. All you have to do if you find one that does not change the engine idle, you just go buy a coil pack and replace it. This should fix you right up

Will crank but won't start


I have seen a lot of trouble with coil packs lately. The first thing I would do is put a coil back on that I knew would make the motor run. It would not surprise me to hear that the new one is also bad. I don't think I would buy a new one until I was sure that the one on the car is bad. my suggestion is a no-cost method to know for sure.
If that does not work I would get a gauge and check the fuel pressure.
Also check to see that the timing belt is not broken. Look in the oil cap filler to see if the valve train moves while someone cranks the motor.
This will keep you busy for a while. Let me know what happens.
