Test the connections on the coil to see if you've voltage to the coil. If so, disconnect the single wire from one end of the coil and make a jumper wire go back on it. connect the wire to the stud on the coil and then momentarily ground the the other end of the wire. When you take the wire loose from the ground, you should see a spark at the coil. If so, it sounds like the sensor down in the "nosecone" of the engine is bad.

Good Luck

I have a 97 ford thunderbird with 4.6 v8 codes show cylinder 1&4 misfire I have changed plugs wires maf sensor and it ran fine for a luttle bit then started again


1 and 4 show to be on separate coils. Check to make sure the plug wires near the 1 and 4 wires are not touching as this can cause cross firing among cylinders.

Y is my 97 chevy only fires on the number one cylender


if you have fire on the number one cylinder,it means that the ignition coil is working so your problem can come from spark plug wire or cap and rotor . unplug the wire from ignition coil to distributor and check for fire you are suppose to have fire because you saying having fire on cylinder one. from there change cap of distributor and rotor plus a set a spark plug wire.
