Usually it will not start, It depends on how many wires are on the correct spark plugs.

It is possible but will run very poorly. Let me know if you can not see the pic of the firing orders.

If they are connected improperly it MAY run (badly), but it is not really a good idea-get back on here with the engine in your Topaz so that you can get a diagram on how to route the plug wires.

My car starts and idols (not well) but loses all power when i put it into gear and attempt to accelerate.


You may have mixed the plug wires around. If they are correct Check to see if exhaust is coming out of the tailpipe. I suspect a clogged cat converter. If it just started coin this since you worked on the vehicle it most likely is something you have done incorrectly. Whether it be wrong brand/type of sparkplug used to the wrong gap on the plugs.

1998 SATURN 4 DOOR DOHC JUST REPLACED THE HEAD GASKET MYSELF WHICH WENT FINE. BOUGHT NEW SPARK PLUGS AND I HAVE THE CORRECT FIRING ORDER BUT FOR SOME REASON 2 OF THE SPARK PLUGS ARE NOT GIVING ENOUGH


Are you saying the engine will not crank, or not start ?
If you think two of the cylinders are not getting spark, something may have happened to the coil pack or the crank-cam sensors.
If all 4 plug wires are getting spark, two of them may be on the wrong cylinders. The firing order is not always the same as the plug wire layout.

Not getting no spark to the plugs


put one of your spark plugs out and put the wire on the end and touch it on the motor and have someone start the car and if you see a spark the that is good you might have a couple bad spark plugs you might have a couple bad spark plug wires try that though and if there is no spark then ist best to just get new spark plugs and new spark plug wires

Just changed out my spark plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor. Now the car wont start, what is the problem ?


Recheck the firing order of the spark plugs and wires. you might have connected them wrong. Can't tell you the firing order since I don't know what kind, make, or year of your vehicle.

How the wire go connected to the spark plug


You may have put the wires in the wrong location, usually there is a diagram located under the hood to tell you where the spare plug wires goes, also located in the operators manual there should be the diagram for the spark plugs.

Rewired ford taurus spark plugs and when turns on it jumps what could i have done wrong?


If you replaced the distributor cap then there is a high possibility that you put the wires in the wrong firing order on cap.

If all you did was replaced the plugs, then I would pull each one out and recheck the Gap sizes with a feeler gauge. Also check to see if the spark/coil plug wires are touching metal or each other, which can cause the spark to arc out of the wire and never get to the spark plug. If I suspect an arc and do not see a physical problem, I wait until nighttime and look under the hood while engine is running...they stick out like a sore thumb. Also make sure that you did not put the wrong plugwire to the wrong spark plug.

When you change your plugs, you should also replace wires, cap and rotor.

Car won't start after changing spark plug


make sure the electrical plug is clipped on securely.you may have damaged the coil-pack that you are calling plugs.remove it again and place one of the old plugs in it and see if you get a spark when someone cranks the engine for you.If not replace the coil pack.

Car wont start


Did you change the spark plugs one wire at a time or did you pull all the wires off an then changed the plugs? If you put the spark plug wires back on wrong this will cause some of the problems you are facing. Get a $20 manual from you parts store and it will give you the diagram and steps to put the wires on correctly. good luck and get some help from a neighbor who understands car repair.
