Why my 1996 cadillac fleetwood brougham not getting any fire to the engine?


Your question needs some additional details. Are you sure that it is not getting fire to the cylinders or are you just using the term "not getting fire" because you are not getting any response from the engine when trying to start the car? Does the engine turn over? I would assume that it probably does based on your question. If your engine turns over then the first diagnostic step to see if you are getting "fire" (spark) to the cylinders is:
- Remove a spark plug wire and remove the corresponding spark plug.
- Put the spark plug wire back on the spark plug.
- Now hold the spark plug thread against a metal part of the engine
- You may want to use rubber gripped pliers to hold the spark plug
- Have someone turn over the engine.
- Watch the end of the plug to see if you are getting a spark jumping the gap to the ground electrode (little metal arm suspended in the air at the end of the spark plug).
- If you are getting spark then you are getting fire and your issue is most likely fuel related or timing (spark synchronization to the cylinder cycle).
- If you are not getting spark, then you have electronic/electrical issues

Let me know what you find out...

If it turns, then the battery is OK. Either spark plugs are not firing in proper order (wrong firing order), no power to spark plugs, or no fuel because of fuel restrictions (dirty fuel filter). Inspect the air filter to ascertain its not clogged air. If you smell gas, then you saturated the spark plugs, which is why it refuses to run.
Let it sit for half hour to let spark plugs dry. Inspect to ascertain its not dirty spark plugs, which will also prevent engine from running. After ascertaining its proper firing order, spark plugs are clean, and there's power to distributor cap, ascertain there's fuel in fuel lines by squirting half second (short squirt) of starting fluid into air filter. Close the air filter housing to trap flammable starting fluid gas. Turn engine without giving throttle. Let starting fluid be ignited by spark plugs. If it won't start, then spark plugs are not firing to ignite starting fluid gas. If it starts briefly, but won't run when you give throttle, but catches when a 2nd person squirts more starting fluid into air filter just before engine stalls, then its a fuel restriction issue or no fuel in fuel lines.

No spark to engine 1991 ford pickup


It can be faulty or dirty spark plug itselfd.Also for reference get the fuel level checked.Is the fuel tank is empty or near to empty.
Try cleaning the spark plugs and then see if that is helpin.On some cases the black carbon layer gets collected on the spark plugs and that causes the problem,so cleaning the plugs help.But if its not helping,then spark plug has to be replaced.Spark plugs get power from ignition coil to ignite sparks.If ignitioncoils are faulty then also there will no spark.--------------

Truck wont start engine turns but wont fire


If the trucks turns over and does not seem like the battery is dead I would assume it is spark or fuel. Check spark plugs to make sure they spark. Pull one plug at a time hold it against side of engine and have someone turn the truck over for you. You should see bright spark from all spark plugs. If you do see spark then check your Fuel Pump to make sure it is getting power and is opperating correctly also check your fuel filter to make sure it is not plugged. Good luck, Hope this helps.

How do you check if you spark plug is firing


Take out the spark plug, place wire back on plug. Hold wire/plug by wire's boot, so firing end of plug is close to (1/4" away from) a ground like the engine block, exhaust manifold, etc.

Have some one turn the key so engine turns over.

If you have good spark you will have a bright blue spark from plug to exhaust manifold. you better use well insulated pliars to hold plug or a piece of wood to hold it to a ground to see if it sparks. good-day !

I have a 92 camry 4cyl. Won't fire at the sparkplug. Replaced plug wires and plugs, distributor, igniter and still won't fire. Any suggestions?


Take out a spark plug, lay the plug (with the spark plug wire attached)on the engine and turn the motor over, if it sparks, your getting fire, Try each plug, works best a night so you can see the spark.

1990 Subaru Legacy shorted out the ignition coil. I replaced it and in less than 1 mile,it shorted out the new one.


Subaru engines (including Legacy and engines of many other automobiles, GM, etc.) have returned to so-called wasted spark ignition systems since advent of the electronic distributor-less ignition (having been used historically in early engines with magneto ignitions). With this approach, the ignition systems are less expensive and usually quite reliable. At the same time, however, a shorted spark plug (cracked or carbon clogged, etc.) (or bad ignition spark plug wire) grounds both the ignition spark and the false spark being used. This means that it also grounds the corresponding respective ignition spark of the other 180 degree out of phase cylinder (that uses the same the same coil because the spark current is connected to the spark plugs of two cylinders). Since such a defect allows more current to flow in the spark coil to two plugs when the resistance of the spark plug gap disappears due to a cracked plug, etc, it seems likely to hasten coil burn out if the spark plug/plug wire defect is not corrected before installing the new spark coil.

To explain further, wasted spark means that when a cylinder is ready to fire, it gets a spark to its spark plug while part of the spark (from the same coil and current) as a sort of copy is also sent to another cyclinder at the same time but when the piston in that cylinder is exhausting its ignited gases 180 degrees out of phase from when its spark is needed. When the second cylinder is ready to fire and receives its "spark, the first cyclinder the also receivesa "wasted" spark "copy" of the one needed by the second cylinder. Economy is achieved in manufacture because otherwise electronics would have to turn on and off four different spark coils to distribute four different sparks as needed to the four cylinders. With wasted sparks (which are cheap), because the spark current of one coil is connected (internally in the ignition coil unit) to two cylinders that are in the same position but 180 degrees out of phase in firing, the system can turn on and off two spark coils twice as fast with half the electronics and fire two cylinders that are 180 degrees out of phase. A four cylinder engine thus uses only two coils, a six cylinder engine, three coils, etc., in a wasted spark system.
