Check and make sure the connection leading into it are producing the right voltage then check the wires leading out into the distributor. another trick that might reveal some problems is open the hood at night...with the truck running... but with a flashlight in hand. be EXTREMELY careful. turn flash light off. give your eyes a chance to adjust..and look into where the sparkplugs are...the wires...and the coil...if you spot a flicker...sparks (looks like a constant or intermittent spark) from any part of your ignition delivery system. then hopefully you can trace the problem from there. as for testing the lead into the coil...should be 12 volts... the coil is simply a transformer to bump it up to thousands of volts to generate a spark. generally 3 things ruin these coils. heat (usually only a design problem) vibration (not likely due to the fact most are epoxy filled) or the voltage simply wears away at the insulation until it fails and shorts out..thus burning out (most common problem)

My 2005 Dodge Caravan 6 disk video player stopped working. I went to eject the DVD in slot #1 which it did, but wouldn't let me insert a different DVD. The light keeps blinking, but there's no noise or movement going on like before. I clicked on #2 slot and the eject button and nothing happens except the light just blinks for the #2 slot. I tried the rest of the slots and the same thing happens to each. Please help! Thank you

Interior AC fan does not turn off even when you turn car off and remove key - Have to pull fuse to reset. This happens if you get it to top lvl 5 then always blows at top speed even if you turn dial back down to 0, 1,2,3,or 4 turn car off still going strong I am assuming this is going to cost a freaking fortune any idea

I had just replaced my ignition lock cylinder in my 92 Camaro Rs, and I'm under going several problems. Problem #1: My brand new ignition lock cylinder won't lock as to where the key cannot be removed. The key will only release when I forcefully turn it to the lock position(to the left) and even then it gets stuck in lock. Problem #2: I'm putting all of the steering column components back in and I can not fit the coil assembly back into the column which keeps me from getting my st


If all you did was to remove things down to the turn signal switch to allow access to the screw that holds the lock cylinder in, I would check the ignition switch for being out of adjustment. Do you have to turn the key a long way to get the engine t ... 1992 Chevrolet Camaro

Started the other night, i noticed a light buzzing from the front which increased and decreased with engine speed...next morning there is a shudder when shifting into drive...1-2 shift is shuddery also, 2-3 shift wont happen unless you let off the gas then it shifts...it goes fine from there. Now, if i drive really slow and keep the revs low i can get it to go smoothly, like normal....is it shot, or is there some light here?

2000 Buick leSabre - sensors keep coming off & on. I'll be driving along & then the radio will turn off, the seat belt light comes on, the service engine soon light comes on , then lights will go off, the traction control light will come off and then go off, the doors will lock & then unlock. This happens maybe once /week but quite freaky when it does happen when your driving along. The car still keeps running fine. It's just the bells & whistles going off & on.

No spark EB '93 Ford Fairmont. The motor was idling and it stopped. I've replaced the coil, checked the fuses, replaced the relay and checked for spark. I was going to try direct power with a fuse in the line to the coil, but I don't really want that to happen. I'm still getting no power going through the coil. It has been suggested to replace the distributor. To me that seems rediculous because you've got to have power going through the coil first don't you? What else could it be? Maybe it coul

Driving down the road and jeep just sputtered and shut down. check engine light came on. 5 codes!?! P0305, P0135, P0351, P0352, P0353. 3 of them are ignition coil circuit codes (coils A, B, and C), one is an o2 sensor heater malfunction (Bank 1 Sensor 1), and one is a cylinder 5 misfire. All seeming to happen instantly and at the same time. Having them all happen simultaneously like this leads me to believe it's either a bad PCM, or maybe something upstream, such as bad fuel pump, is making eve

On my 1993 Chevy Cavalier coupe, VL 2.2L 5 spd, drove it back home the other day only to suddenly loose about half its power. Barely made it to work. My mechaninc noticed Cyls 1 and 4 had no spark, so we replaced the coil packs. I changed both since I didn't want to go through it again. The problem still persists! We even swapped coils around, but no spark is coming out to 1 and 4 pistons. Can it be the module where the coils are attached to?

Toyota I am trying to find out which wires go where. I know that the firing order is 1-3-4-2, but I don't understand the coil packs. The diagram that I have is confusing. It shows that the coil packs are listed as from front to back 1-2, 3-4. If this is the case, then why is the firing order 1-3-4-2? This is a 1999 Toyota Tacoma regular cab pick up 2.4ltr 2 WD. Any help will be greatly appreciated.


Coil pack connection is physical: Coil 1 to Cylinder 1, 2->2, etc.I am not sure if this is your question, but firing order matches spark to TDC (top dead center) on the power stroke. The design of the crankshaft determines this. ... Cars & Trucks
