Question about 1999 Plymouth Neon

1 Answer

I have a 96 Plymoth Neon and I am not getting spark.. It have spark through the clip and the coil pack.. But when i put the test on the coil back and the spark plug wire( which is attached to the spark plug) it lights up...but the light is very faint. I was told I could need a cam sensor, a crank sensor, or a new computer. I know the computer is good... The code is reading a 5 but i dont have a Hyanes manual for the car. If any one could help me out I would really appreciate it..

There is no OBDII code for you car that is 5, your crank and cam sensor is what tell the computor when to send a signal to fire the cylinder, sounds like a weak coil, you can take it off and autozone can test them, I don't recommend buying one from them, get a good one from the dealer, it's a little bit pricey, much better part.

97 plymoth neon crank sensor

If there is spark to cylinders 2 & 3 than it is not the cranks sensor. Cylinder 1 & 4 are on the same coil and cylinders 2 & 3 are on the other coil. Replacing lithe coil pack will likely solve you lack of spark on cylinders 1 & 4.

I have a 98 vw jetta gl ABA and it wont start run.

I would check for spark on the ignition coil and the spark plug. If no spark, check the power and signal to the ignition coil. The ignition coil large wires are 12volts power and the other three is a signal to electronic firing circuit from ECM. Testing the power is easy, for testing for trigger signal, use a 12v LED test light.

We replaced the Water pump and Timing belt on a 1999 Plymouth Neon 2.0 Single Overhead Cam Engine. Engine Cranks, Is getting Fuel...but no spark. We changed the Coil Pack. It still cranks, but no...

If its not getting spark the choices are limited. You already replaced the coil pack so whats left is ignition module, crank sensor, knock sensor, cam sensor, or the timing was not was not set properly when putting it back together. Any one of those would create a no spark situation.

Hi, I own a Dodge Neon 2005, Came home from a week vacation to find a Rabbit had decided to eat through 3&4 spark plug wires and the coil pack wire harness. unfortunately I didn't know this before...

I would be looking around for any other munching by varmits. Your ecm is under the hood. Critters could have taken out more wiring. look under battery area and ecm area for starters.

1999 plymoth neon 3rd cylinder misfire

no. 3 plug, wire or coil pack. Remove the plug wire one inch from the plug using a properly insulated plug wire tool with the engine running, if you hear a tick, tick sound then it's the plug if you don't hear a tick tick sound it means it's the wire or the coil.
