like 10 ways to check spark, 1 being right.(DIY)
using a real spark plug, new as a test spark plug. x4
or #2 way with a pro spark gap tool that shows the energy level
how did you do it.?
no spark at all 4 spark plugs?
some have 4 COPS. does yours, and are all 4 dead?
question 2, when did it last run, right, yesterday or 5 years ago
and were things messed with , like a new timing belt.
and that brings up, does the cams turn.? if not you skipped the 60k tune up with belt.
this car is a 1.8L 7A-FE toy engine. you can fix it the same why.
and get great help with gen7 toy forums...
when posting state country, Canada cars (geo) are different
and state what engine, 1.6 or 1.8.. i think its 1.8 if USA
in USA the EPA mandated the 1.8 in 1995. but? country ?ou never said.
the 1.8 1995 has what is called an integrated ignition assembly
it has 7/8 low voltage pins (trigger signals from ECU)
it's very unique.
96 changes are radical here in usa for OBD2 (EPA rules)
see the spark tests here. (i hate AZ but not their docs)
their logic has 1 failing , does it fail for 1 cylinder or all 4
this is the #1 logic path after checking cam spins.http://www.autozone.com/autozone/repairinfo/repairguide/repairGuideContent.jsp?pageId=0900c1528006ef7b
Cops means DIS, Coil over plugs. and is Distributor less ignition.
the below toy idea is an odd compromise from old to new tech.
dizzy> then below oddity, then >cops. (history flow)
now MY way. (no cops, and only on this motor this year, uSA)
1: does the twin cam spin? yes/no, if no, stop and fix that.
2: is spark timing (light) good on #1 or degrees.
yes, good, if dead skip to next
no, then the timing belt slipped, owner dont do 60k mile tunes. !!!
2: is spark dead, on 1,? only? yes, bad spark wire, or you using
a bad test spark plug, never do that, use a fresh test spark plug
and keep it in the tool box. (life time )
2a: dead one , the integrated, spark assy. is bad. 7/8 wire unit.
3:a; dead on all cylinders. (are you following me?)
bad inegrated module.
or bad inputs to it. there are 7 inputs (and ground)
no power to it. no 12v.
the inputs 7 wires are timing. if those are bad, then bingo'
then read the AZ page.
