Getting a rapid misfire in cylinder 5 changed spark plugs ,cleared the code came back on the day later ???


Hi Jason, Sounds like you have a coil pack and one of your coils is faulty. To check which coil is faulty just pull a spark plug lead off a spark plug and plug the spark plug lead onto a SPARE spark plug, Now earth it to the CLEAN motor or body (make sure the spark plug is touching metal) Start the motor, it's going to run ROUGHER than usual but you'll see if that spark plug is sparking... If it sparks then that coil is good. Turn the motor off and replace the spark plug lead back on to the original spark plug. Repeat with the next spark plug lead and so on until you start your car and the spark plug doesn't spark, THAT'S YOUR FAULTY COIL...

How do you test an ignition coil


Remove the lead the spark plug, and then remove the spark plug, connect the spark plug back to the lead. Remove the positive and negative wires from the coil. Replace them with a negative and positive direct to the battery, but don't connect the positive to the coil. Hold the spark plug to a grounded part of the car, touch the positive lead to the coil, when you RELEASE the wire from the coil, you get a spark.

89 toyota corolla has no spark,changed dist.cap and rotor and still no spark,why? any body helpful


Could be a bad coil or igniter. Check voltage to the coil and check for spark from the coil while cranking.

No spark


Check to see if you have spark out coil.If you have spark at coil then it's distributor related. No spark at coil means ignition module or crank sensor hopefully its not computer.

When i start my 2001 kia optima my car putters. i changed my bad o2 sensors. but not sure what the problem is. and when i drive sometimes it jerks. what could the problem be


The spark and fuel system needs to be inspected.--------- The spark plugs are getting fouled or very loose, can cause sputtering problem.Inspect the spark plugs and coil packs.The spark plugs gets power from coil pack.If the spark plugs are very old and dirty, then it needs to be replaced.--------------- The **** problem also relates to faulty worn out spark plugs or clogged fuel filter or low fuel pressure or problem with ignition coil pack.----------- When coil pack stops giving power to spark plug the car will **** while driving.---------- So very first thing you get tested is spark plugs and ignition coil packs.If they are tested good, but looks very dirty/ worn out, that can also be the reason.----------- But if spark plugs and ignition coil tested ok and cleaned properly, but still same problem, then get fuel pressure tested.If fuel pressure is low, the fuel pump and fuel filter are the cause of problem.----------- ------------------ Also one more thing, " IS there check engine light coming ON dash" ? If yes, then get the car scanned at autozone service center.Its absolutely free to get car scanned at autozone.They do it for no charge.------- In scanning you will get error codes, as per error codes, it will point towards faulty part, causing this sputtering and jerking problem.----------------- But if there is no check engine light ion dash, then get the above mentioned possibilities checked.That will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

If your getting spark from the coil and none to the plugs.Then its either the wires or plugs. I'm curious .... what are you using to test for spark at the coil?

Not getting spark


Testing the coil packs.

1. Get an INSULATED wire and hook it to a ground on the car.
2. Get some one to help you
3. pull a spark plug wire off the coil
4. hold grounded wire close to, but not touching, the part where the spark plug wire connects
5. keep hands away from coil and have your helper turn the engine over ( start car and turn off)
6. if there was a spark between the wire and the coil pack it is good. if not, the coil pack needs replaced
7. replace the spark plug wire
8. test the rest
