Best Answer

There are a number things that can cause no ignition spark. A typical ignition system consists of an ignition module, ignition coil, some type of stator or pickup (distributer pickup, crank sensor, etc), plug wires that carry secondary ingition fire to the plugs(some have no wires, but individual coils directly on top of the spark plugs), spark plugs, wiring that provides primary power to the componets, wiring that provides grounds to the system, and some cars have a distributer(though distributers have been getting phased out for about the last 10-15 years). Anything at all in that system that has failed will cause no spark to one or more cylinders.

How do you check an engine for spark?

Remove the spark plug wire from the spark plug. Use some heavy gloves or a set of insulated pliers to hold the spark plug wire about 1/4-inch from the engine block (ground) and crank the engine - you should see a spark jump from the wire to the engine ground. For a better check, use another spark plug and put it on the spark plug wire and use it as a "jumper" from the wire to the engine ground.
