I would suspect the coil itself, even with the wire connecting to the distributor cap removed, you should still see a spark from the connector on the coil to the body of the coil itself
1995 ford ranger 4wd cranks over but no spark, replaced crank sensor Check battery power to coil connector, if that is good coil can be tested w/multimeter.
I have an 89 Ranger with the 2.9L, was driving on the highway and it just quit. I thought it was probably the timing chain, had it towed to a shop and he checked fuel pressure which was normal, found no spark condition. He tested the ignition coil, pickup coil, module and wiring for faults. Failure traced to the ignition control module. He also replaced the distributor cap, rotor, and coil wire. If you have a no spark condition I would recheck all these because I think if it is a broken timing chain you would still have spark. The ignition control module is at the base of the distributor cap. Assuming your ignition coil and ignition control module are good, try the pickup coil. Stay with the ignition system until you get spark. i have the same problem with my 88 ranger changed distributor, rotor button, ignition coil, and tfi module, still no spark. If it is the timing chain it will not spark.
Assuming you mean no spark at the spark plugs; check for spark at the coil - if you have spark, then remove the distributor cap and check the rotor and contacts for corrosion. If you don't have spark at the coil, then either the coil is bad or you have a broken wire in the system. (Coils seldom go bad but there is always that possibility). Hope this helps.
After testing the coil for proper resistance and finding they had the proper values, I swapped them from one side to the other. The coil with no spark still had no spark. A new coil was installed, problem solved.
In a 1997 Ford Ranger : The 2.3 liter four cylinder with Fords twin plug ignition system has ( 2 coil packs ) and ( 8 ) spark plug wires for the eight sparkplugs The 3.0 liter and the 4.0 liter V6 engines have ( 1 coil pack ) and ( 6 ) spark plug wires for the six spark plugs
what is the correct fireing order for each indiviual coil pack to each spark-plug, i need to know if i have the spark-plug wires connected to the coils in the right spot, and to the right coil
No spark can be as simple as a ecm fuse blown, a bad ignition switch, defective ignition module or a bad coil.
If you are getting power to your coil and you still have no spark at the spark plug, you have a bad coil. Beyond that you will have to chase the electrical system. could be a fusible link.
crank sensor or cam sensor
do you have fuel pressure. engine should start and run with spark on only one side.
check the connection to the coil to the battery and check your distributor
Either your coil is shot or your kill switch is stuck closed. If you warm it up (above freezing) and it still doesn't have spark, bet on the coil being bad or if you are lucky, the sparkplug wire is cracked and grounded. you can isolate & test the coil by removing the engine shroud, you will find one thin green or black wire going into the back of your coil, disconnecting this wire will isolate the coil from the rest of electrical system. recheck spark with the wire disconnected, if you still dont have spark you need a new coil, if now have spark it means your coil is working and either a switch or a bad wire is grounding the system.
No. The coil provides the spark and the module tells the coil when to spark.
your coil packs are bad. this is not cheap to fix. sorry.
Follow any of the 6 spark plug wires from the spark plugs , the other 6 ends of the spark plug wires connect to the ignition coil pack coil---3---4 pack--2---6 plug---1---5 ( EDIS - Electronic Distributorless Ignition System )
Please check your spark plugs,wires,distributor and rotor or the ignition coil module. My '93 LX has an ignition coil module.
check the pickup coil. that was the prob
The purpose of a coil pack is to supply the spark to the spark plugs.
You apply 12 volts to the coil primary and then release it . The electricity will go through the secondary coil and spark the spark pug.
Spark plug wires? Coil pack? Dirty injector? Spark plug wires? Coil pack? Dirty injector? Spark plug wires? Coil pack? Dirty injector?
Should have Coil On Plug system. Each spark plug will have its own coil mounted on top
