Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

Not getting fire over the #1 spark plug coil. What needs to be changed/what is the cause of the problem? The engine stopped running while in motion. Battery light came on first then all the other warning signal and the engine cut off in traffic. The engine turns, but the engine won't start.

  1. Check fuel level in fuel tank, add fuel if empty.
  2. Check battery condition and state of charge. If voltage and load test below specification, charge or replace battery.
  3. Check battery terminal and cable condition and tightness. Clean terminals and replace damaged, worn or corroded cables.
  4. Check fuel delivery system. If fuel is not reaching the fuel injectors, check for a loose electrical connector or defective fuse, relay or fuel pump and replace as necessary.
  5. Engine may have excessive wear or mechanical damage such as low cylinder cranking pressure, a broken camshaft drive system, insufficient valve clearance or bent valves.
  6. Check for fuel contamination such as water in the fuel. During winter months, the water may freeze and cause a fuel restriction. Adding a fuel additive may help, however the fuel system may require draining and purging with fresh fuel.
  7. Check for ignition system failure. Check for loose or shorted wires or damaged ignition system components. Check the spark plugs for excessive wear or incorrect electrode gap. If the problem is worse in wet weather, check for shorts between the spark plugs and the ignition coils.
  8. Check the engine management system for a failed sensor or control module.

I changed spark plugs and changed cylinder #1 on my 2006 cadillac srx but now its shaking what did I do wrong? It wasn't shaking before


How do you change a cylinder? That's generally a major machine-shop overhaul on non-aircraft engines, and you should have serviced rings and bearings for all of the other cylinders as well. I assume you meant you did something else on Cylinder #1. Did you mean you changed the spark plug cable, or was it the fuel injector? Note: if you mixed up spark plug cables, you will have at least two plugs firing at the wrong time. This will make the engine run poorly, if it runs at all. Look for a sticker somewhere in the engine compartment showing the firing order, and verify that each cylinder's spark plug wire is connected to the corresponding terminal on the distributor or coil pack.

Need firing order for 2004 vw polo 1.6. also which terminal is#1 on the coil pack


1,3,4,2 on all 4 banger,unless boxer engines
ah, didng change them 1 by one, you bad boy.
ok most coil packs are marked. (wasted spark)
did you look at both,? old and new for marks

2 coils ,1 back and 1 coil runs 2 cylinders wasting spark
on exhaust stroke.

alldata.com, log in (did you Google this first)
or go to rockauto.com see all packs zoom in and luck out
and see the marks?
Nah, just looked, not there

fist google hit lands on fixya
http://www.fixya.com/cars/t20217864-need_correct_firing_order_volkswagen

but id not trust that but you could just guess
its just 4 wires.
after all 2 ways works, (will run if coil is backwards)

try 1 and 4 on one end
the 1 and 4 on other end. see my drift

1 fires on compression TDC
while 4 fires at exhuast TDC (called wasted spark)
then put the other 2 wires in any order
it will start.

if serious, alldata.com had the answer every time.
one stop and bingo.

the plugs are gang fired, in pairs. is the trick here.

1998 pontiac firebird coil pack, will coil make it miss on 1 cylinder, 3800 engine, misfiring, have changed plugs and wires


yes, it can happen. check for spark from the number one coil using spark plug wire and hold it near a grounded point. it should be a consistent spark with engine running. compare to different coil wire for verification. those coil packs are partially replace able because each coil fires two plugs. replace the no.1 portion with a new one from parts store. 28.00

1999 ford escort I changed the plugs, but broke a plug cap. Bought a generic replacement spark plug wire that had to be modified to fit into the head. I cannot get the firing order correct. The car...


Remove the plugs from the head. Insert into the coil wires. Make sure they are properly earthed on the engine. Crank the motor and check for spark at each of the plugs.
Refer to the diagram. Cylinders are connected as shown on the diagram in blue. 1 goes to cylinder 1(sparkplug furthest from coil pack), 2 to 2, 3 to 3 and 4 to 4(closets to coil pack).
To test the coil pack use a digital volt meter. Measure resistance between coil towers for coil 1(marked 1 in red on diagram) Value should be between 12000 and 14500 ohm. Do the same for coil towers 2.
Measure resistance between I and C1. If the measurement is more than 5 ohm the coil is defective. Do the same for I to C2.
Measuring voltage at I(Ignition start/run) to ground should be 10V.
I is connected to the 15A engine fuse. The radio interference capacitor is connected between this line and earth at the coil. Disconnect it to see if it cures the problem.
C1 and C2 connect to the powertrain control module.
Bear in mind that aftermarket coil wires may cause problems with misfiring, so see if you cant find an OEM coil wire to replace the broken one before replacing anything else.

One cylinder is not firing, what can cause this? it started all of a sudden, no warning. we have changed the plugs and plug wires but the one cylinder is still dead. what could be the cause of this?


2 things to check. With the engine running, pull 1 plug wire off each cylinder, ,,, 1 by 1 and notice if the engine changes. If you pull 1 off and it does NOT change,, then shut off the engine. and do a compression check. You can also get one of you old plugs and hook it up to the wire while grounding it to the valve coever to see if you are getting spark from the coil/distributor to that cylinder. if not, then you have located your problem.

Car will not start.Engine turns over but spark plugs willnot fire


I would say replace ignition coil, that might me the problem, otherwise it can be the ecu, which might have some electrical problems not allowing the car to stay running. Good luck.

Just changed plugs and wires in my 1998 Chevy Malibu V6 3.1. Car now runs very rough and has no pick up at all. What is the proper firing order for this engine?


Firing order on 3.1L engine is 1-2-3-4-5-6. The ignition system is a waste-spark system, which uses 3 coil packs (1-4) (2-5) (3-6). Make sure that the paired cylinders' plug wires go to the same coil pack.

86 toyota corolla-cylinder #1 not firing


i want say NO.
If the coil not working engine cant run but if you see one cylinder not working but the and engine raining rough and poor it can be plug cable which from distributor to the spark plug or my be distributor cover.
if not all that it can be spark plug if not that it can be cylinder head valves.
