The metal on the outside of the plug must be pressed against the cylinder in order for a spark to happen. If you did ground the plug as described, and no spark was present, try a new spark plug. Carbon on the nose of the plug can rob the spark. If still no spark, check the fuses with a multimeter then check for power to the coil. Battery weak or dead?

No spark at plugs


Do you mean you get spark from coil high tension wire to dizzy cap? If so, the only thing left is the cap and rotor and wires and the engine must have a good ground.

Removing Plug Wires from '02 Pontiac Grand Prix, 3.8 Liter V6


often times the connection inside the plug boot gets corroded and it's almost impossible to remove the wires with out damage. when this happens I gennerally replace the wires anyway this saves you problems in the long run . the sparkplug wire removalk pliers are a good investment however they are only as good if the boots themselves are not siezed up on the plugs. I have had this happen alot over the 20 years i been working on vehicles. I usually just twist and pull on the boots till they come off and not worry about damaging them because they should get replaced anyway the new plug wires have a antiseize lubricant to keep from this happening in the future

Need a spark plug diagram


Hello,

Take a look at this picture. This is from a 94 cougar V8, on the left and right are coil packs with wires coming out and going to the sides of the engine. On the spark plug side you pull to remove, on the coil side squeeze the clips and pull up. IMPORTANT - Do one wire at a time so that you put the wires in the same spot as you took them off.

CHECK COIL ON WEEDEATER


Most likely the isue is too large plug gap. The proper gap is 1mm, set the gap first then if you still want to check coil output take the plug out hold the base of the plug to the cylinder head pull the start rope and look for a spark. If you can't see a spark seperate the plug base from the cylinder with your finger pull the cord, if it hurts stop pulling the coil is good! If you dont feel the shock then the coil may be defective however there is a couple of electrical conections to check first. If you already have access to the coil and have an ohm meter check for a low resistance (below 10 ohms) across the coil wires.

Inspection

Inspect for the correct routing of the spark plug wires. Improper routing may cause cross-firing. Inspect each wire for any signs of cranks or splits in the wire. Inspect each plug wire boot for tearing, piercing, arcing, carbon tracking or a corroded terminal.
If there is any corrosion, carbon tracking or arcing indicated on a plug wire boot or terminal, both the plug wire and component it was connected to should be replaced.

Still running rough after plugs and wires.


if the other coils are functioning, then voltage to the coil pack is ok. removing the spark plug wire from the suspected bad coil with no change in engine performance is a reliable procedure to check for a bad coil.

my money would be on the coil cover, especially if it had been a long time since the last tune up. it is certainly worth trying, as this is part of a routine tune up anyways. good luck!

Buick Lesabre 1998, How you check the coil packs?


you can take them off and have them tested or you can pull the plugs and there should be two plugs that will be really black follow those wires back to the coil that is bad. or you could also have someone crank it while you stick a screwdriver in the end of the wire on the plug and hold the screwdriver next to the engine or a good ground and there should be a bright blue spark but be careful and dont touch the car or it might tickle a little bit
