I have a 1987 dodge power ram 150 that will not get fire past the coil wire. I have replaced the wires, plugs, cap, rotor, distributor (single plate coil with no vaccuum advance) and battery (optima). OH and the coil, twice now. Neither of the new ones work and the old one doesn't either. If I turn the key to on and hop up in the engine I can run a wire from the neg of the coil to the ground of the engine and get a spark.

I just had a head gasket blow on one side of the vortex motor. After he put it back together he said he can't get it to fire on Number 1 cylinder. He didn't have his tester with him, but will bring it tomorrow. It is not the spark plug or wire. I have the type of injector that has to replace all at same time (I believe it's referred to as "spider" type). He told me he converted his van from what I have to the type where you replace only the bad injector. I have 2 questions. First one is

Engine problem I have a 1995 grand am with a quad four. It started running very hard one day so we put a new fuel filter and spark plugs in it but that didn't seem to help. We then took it to a friend?s garage and found out that the two right cylinders aren?t firing. We put in a new coil on that side and that didn't help. We know that there are sparks when the plugs are outside of the cylinder and that the cylinder is good because we did a compression check. If you have any idea of what the prob

The spark plug coils keep having to be replaced, no one knows why they are going bad; the car has 100,000 miles on it with new jasper engine; all coils on left side of engine have now been replaced.


If you have a Jasper Engine - I must guess you have a high mileage car. If you only replaced them all once then you're not unusual on these types of newer cars. Look for a factory recall on yours by taking down the vin# and calling the local dealer. ... 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis

I replaced the spark plugs, gaped at .35, replaced wiring, took each wire and replaced from the one I replace so the firing order should be correct, replaced the cap and rotor. The had been running before I did this. Now when I try to start the engine,it will only crank over, it acts like it having a hard time cranking over. I checked the spark, I did it by using a old spark plug and battery cable to the spark plug and neg on the battery, it showed there was a spark getting to the plug. Also

Failed spark coils on my 1999 Lexus ES 300. Replaced one last March and two more last month. I read that fouled plugs could cause coil failure. Since the recommended schedule for ''hard driving conditions'' is to replace spark plugs at 60,000 miles I had them replaced last month also at 68,000 miles rather than at the ''normal'' maintenance schedule of 98,000 miles. Are the remaining coils likely to fail also or soon or are there significant differences in the locations, exposure to heat, etc


I would think it would be an opposite, coil failure will fail soon or later and that is common and have to be replace over time. I've seen new coil fail on new vehicle all the time, even new built modified race car fired up and run for 5 ... 1999 Lexus ES 300
