Hi,

To my knowledge a 96 Mitsubishi Eclipse use a dual ignition system; two (2) ignition coil, 2 power transistor and two trigger. It would be necessary to do a trace/voltage check of the signal (flow) from the triggers (yellow and yellow/red wires) to the power transistor block output (yellow/green and yellow/blue wires) that goes into the ignition coil pair. Each coil provides the spark to a pair of plugs. The defective component would then be determined by process of elimination (which does not have a signal/voltage).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Don:
1.6L or 1.8liter engine? Toy 4A or 7A engine?
all 4 cylinder dead. and coil? no spark?
did you hook up all sensors. as the 96 had,(usa car has more)
usa car is OBD2 and runs crank and cam sensors to do misfire detection.(fed law)
any scan tool will tell you why,!
here posted 100 times in ORDER
  1. fuses all good, 12vdc both sides, key on, or its bad.
  2. keyon
  3. CEL lamp in dash turns on, if not ,see #1
  4. plug in scan tool, get comms.? good, pcm talks !
  5. crank for 5 seconds. (least) release key, not off.
  6. SEE Those DTC errors, for spark , cmp,ckp, (P03xx errors)
  7. bingo.? RPM dead cranking? scan tools can see RPM.
  8. sure! my bet by now you found it.

My 1994 cavalier lost spark to cylinders 1 and 4. Which components are directly related to ignition spark and timing? What about the camshaft sensor?


You listed all the components involved in spark timing and control- coil, ignition module, pcm, wires, plugs, crank sensor, and cam sensor.
Cylinders 1 and 4 have the same coil for both, so concentrate on that coil. You still have a good blue spark on cylinders 2 and 3? If you have spark there, I don't know about the cam sensor-I think it would be good if it works at all. You need to check if you have 12 volts power to the coil for 1 and 4.

I have a 96 Plymoth Neon and I am not getting spark.. It have spark through the clip and the coil pack.. But when i put the test on the coil back and the spark plug wire( which is attached to the spark...


There is no OBDII code for you car that is 5, your crank and cam sensor is what tell the computor when to send a signal to fire the cylinder, sounds like a weak coil, you can take it off and autozone can test them, I don't recommend buying one from them, get a good one from the dealer, it's a little bit pricey, much better part.

Missing intermittenly, shows problem with #2 cylinder. Could it be the coil and can you purchase separate coils.


Theses coils are separate, but handle 2 cylinders at a time. So in your vehicle you should have 3 coils.Random misfire may be caused by the following: due 4 tune-up, faulty coil, faulty spark plug, faulty plug wire, faulty cam or crank sensor, poor cylinder compression, intake/head gasket leaks. Before replacing parts, make sure that #2 cylinder is diagnosed for the misfire. Otherwise you'll be changing out good parts, and spending more $$$!!

Swapped a 1999 420A engine into a 1995 eclipse (also a 420A) and we have no spark. We started by checking the cam sensor and it is working properly it is upside down from the 95 but the ASD relay is...


first the cam sensor shouldn't be upside down from the 95. they both should be with the plug facing down. they 95 CAS has a different plug than the 99 CAS.
the 95 has round pins and the 99 has flat pins.

besides that it could be the ecu. i also have heard of the locating pin on the intake cam shearing off, allowing the gear to turn with the timing belt without the actual camshaft spinning.

My jeep has issues with shutting off at random times. It can happen when I am driving or idling. If I am going fast, I will lose my acceleration and I will have to pull over. The engine will either pick up...


The issue lies with any of the following three things 1) can sensor 2) crank sensor and 3) ignition coil. Check the quality of the spark at the plugs as a way to check on the coil output. Next some Jeeps have one coil per two plugs and some have coil on plug. If you have one coil per two plugs disconnect the two plug leads to one of the coils (on four cylinder engine they are arranged plugs 1 + 4 on one coil and plugs 2 + 3 on the other coil). Turn the engine over and sparks should jump between the terminals on the coil. If this happens the crank sensor continuity is OK and that it is detecting crank position, if not then this a strong indication that something is wrong with it. Check it for cracks and check the wiring all the way back to the ECU and check the connection is clean. Replace it if suspect. Now physically check the cam sensor. Any cracks or distortion in the body of the device replace it. Check connections and wiring back to the ECU. Generally the cam sensor goes wrong when the engine is hot. If you get random shut down even when starting up this indicates that it is more likely to be the crank sensor or coil.

No fire when i try to start my 96 eclipse


I have a 95 eclipse and had the same problem. Replaced the coil, plugs, wires. I had it taken to 3 garages before I found out. It's a problem with the anti-theft system. I don't have the exact location, but the guy who finally found out the problem said it was under the front bumper. Sorry I can't be more specific, but I know how puzzling the problem is. I spent a good 700 dollars and 4 months on two "I don't know"s and a little under $200 to actually get it fixed.

No spark to coil changed waterpump and timingbelt


is the motor timed right. the cam and crank sensor signals have to be in sync if your too many teeth off it wont start and engine damage could result.
