Here's how i tested the COIL ON a DODGE RAM and it should apply to any coil . you need an Alligator clip ok, you clip that into the plug end of the coil harness , NOT THE COIL ON THIS MACHINE IT doesn't matter if it is live or ground. TAKE A TEST LIGHT clip the ground of the test light onto the alligator clip OK , NOW TOUCH THE OTHER SIDE OF THE HARNESS. GET A HELPER TO TURN THE KEY OVER IF THE TEST LIGHT STAYS SOLID RED OR GREEN THE COIL IS A PASS GREAT OK RUN. IF IT FLASHES LIKE A TIMING LIGHT THE COIL IS shot . I RECALL THE COMPUTER WILL MEMORIZE THAT THE COIL IS GONE AND IT WILL FLASH THE TEST LIGHT TELLING YOU I AM SHOT.

If you have checked the coil pack to make sure it is getting power then it might be the ECU. I would make sure you check the engine codes too.

The coil pack, on a 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier, is located on the top of the engine. The coil pack is near the electronic spark distributor.

Mounted on your valve cover is a box where your spark plug wires connect. This is the coil pack

If you mean the engine coolant temperature sensor, it is located at the rear right of the engine (when you are standing at the front of the engine), below the coil pack. You might need to move the coil pack and the power steering reservoir to access it easily.

I have changed the coil pack on a lot of this series of caravan. Never had this happen. I would guess either the coil pack is not plugged in or you un-plugged the cam sensor and did not plug it back in. If it is not a wiring issue you likely have a bad (new) coil pack.

The coil pack is located on the passenger side of the motor in a 1996 GMC Sonoma 4.3L Vortec Engine. The spark plugs plug into the coil pack eliminating the spark plug wires.

Crankshaft sensor is on the back of the bell hosing of the transmission and the camshaft sensor is behind of the motor mount on the left under the coil pack

Follow any of the spark plug wires from the spark plug to the top of the engine and they all will meet at the coil pack

Follow the silver pipe coming out of the top of the engine. The egr is located on the driver's side of the engine. Behind and below the spark plug coil pack.

A solenoid pack is generally called a coil pack it is the place where all the plug wires plug in, it should be very visible to see on a dodge front wheel drive it should be on the drivers side near the front of the engine depending on model. But on my 2005 that's where it's at. Hope this is helpful. The solenoid pack is on the front of the transmission. It is what the computer uses to apply the different gears.

No , it's EDIS ( Electronic Distributorless Ignition System ) and has a coil pack The Coil Pack Towers are numbered : coil----3---4 pack---2---6 plug----1---5

The firing order is 1-2-3-4-5-6. This engine uses a coil pack. Click the link to see a diagram of the connections.

On the front of the transmission, just below where the cooler lines hook on.

symptoms are: you can hear the engine missing, spitting and sputtering, loss of power...you can tell if it is a coil pack by unscrewing the spark plug that it connects to coil pack. when you look at your spark plug it should be a light grayish, white..this means the coil pack is working....it is best if you do this with new spark plugs, because your spark plugs could be bad. but you do this process until you find a bad plug then, that coil pack probably is the bad coil pack.
