It could mean you have a bad coil, or a bad coil wire, or a bad distributor cap, but most likely its the coil itself.

I have checked the coil and its ok, from the coil to the spark plugs are ok. tryed it all on a diffrent car. i checked to see if the coil is getting power when i turn it over and it does not. the starter is turning ok. no fuse is gone. ok compresion. wired the coil with power and got spark to the plugs, but still wont start. so i think the engine is not getting any power when im turning the starter. why would that be.

Hi, 2006 Nissan Sentra, The car won't start, I can hear the pump as I turn the ignition on, as I try to start the car is turning over okay so no starter problem and battery strength is okay. I had removed one of the ignition coils to test looks like I am not getting spark. Ignition coil fuse is 15amp is okay. Any other simple things to check ? I am about to take it to the dealer Thanks Justo

001 Mercury Grand Marquis with 116,000 miles has starting troubles. Problems began in 2010 - turning the ignition the car would turn on and then stop. Had a tune-up in summer 2010 and when the problem came back, a coil was replaced in February 2011. The problem has returned. It seems to happen mostly in cold weather or if car has sat for a few hours. The only way to get it to work is to turn the car on and wait 3-5 seconds before igniting.

My car would not start, was cranking but not turning over. My cat converter was bad, I replaced it but now my car is running like **** and when driven my cat converter turns bright red. I replaced both O2 sensors and it stayed running but my car was still running bad. It is also throwing a multiple misfire code, so I replaced the coil pack and now my car wont start at all again. I also checked the spark plugs and they look fine...


Running extremely lean. Did you replace the 02 sensors? They detect lean and rich conditions and if the previous problem was too rich, the 02 sensors may have set ecu to run lean because of their problem. Now converters are free flowing and the s ... 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier

I just recently changed my burnt Ignition coils for my 2001 Audi A6 Quattro 2.7T. However when i turned on the car and test drove it. My car was full of smoke from under the hood. When we looked to see the new coil was burnt to a crisp again. I changed the coils packs, I changed The modules, and the head gasket.


Check output voltage of altenator . If the voltage is more than 15 volts this might cause the ignition coil to burn out.\015\012\015\012If its more than 15 volts all you need to do is replace the alternator.\015\012\015\012 ... 2001 Audi A6

2001 VW Passat will NOT start every morning. Takes 5 -8 minutes for car to eventually turn over. It is rough for a few minutes then runs fine. Car will start fine for the rest of the day. Only the first time in the morning. Do you know what could be the problem. Already had the car in for a check @ VW dealer and they said it was the ignition coil and spark plugs. Battery is fine. Had them replaced (one of the coils was bad) and the problem still occurs. Could this be related to the oil sludge pr

1991 Chevrolet Corsica was running fine....Pulled up on car port as normal and shut car off. Next day went to leave...car turned over but would not fire....Help!??? Please???? Guys who have checked it think that it could be a coil pack..is there a way of checking the coil packs before purchasing new ones? Is there anything else that it could be that is a simpler fix? Thank you!


Hello Bridget.Yes there are ways to check to verify.Often on the Corsica the "coil pack" as it was described is the issue. However there are a few other items that also fail.The "coil pack" actually consists of separate components. ... 1991 Chevrolet Corsica

1997 cavalier w/2.4. Sons car. He was driving @ 60MPH and car died. It turns over (shakes quite a bit while turning over) but won't start. Checked ignition control module and replaced coil packs, plugs, and wires. Before the car died it had a noise coming from timing chain vicinity, and was told by a mechanic that timing chain is loose. Same machanic now says timing is not an issue (after it died). Any help would be appreciated. Thankyou.

I have a 1970 VW bug that was running perfectly until the other day. It was raining, I heard a 1 second high pitched whirl sound, and the car died completely. The engine will turn over but it is not sparking or starting. Did the rain short out my coil? Any ideas? Also, the engine seems much harder to manually turn via pulling on the fan belt. The engine is a stock 1600. Recently had a brand new carburator installed. The car was running great but just died unexpectantly. I have che

1993 Lincoln Continental V6 3.8L If the ignition coil is bad would the car start, run for awhile, then shut down and not restart until it sits for a while? It will turn over but not fire at all. I?ve replaced the ignition module but still am getting the same results. Someone suggested that perhaps the ignition coil could be causing the problem. When the car does start the ?check engine? message appears on the message panel. The manual says that this indicates a possible problem with
