Usually the first thing that I would check is a bad ground of the coil itself. Now if that does not work then you should let a professional do this but it is an old trick, but power up the coil manually by grounding the bottom of it to the car and then taking a wire from the pos side of the battery touch the batt post of the cap. You olny need to do this for a second. Then take the wire away from the battery and DO NOT TOUCH THE CENTER OF THE CAP!!!! but ground out the top of the cap. YOU WILL SEE A SPARK!!! if you do not then more than likely the cap is breaking down and not holding a charge. A coil not sparking could be many things like a ignition module it could be the crankshaft possition sensor or camshaft position sensor
The ignition coil would only affect the spark to the spark plug(s).
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
Bad coil or coil pack.
I have replaced the coil and distributor cap.
No spark would usually be the ignition coil.
No. The coil provides the spark and the module tells the coil when to spark.
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.
A coil is what gives you spark it distributes the power to your spark plugs so it would run bad or not at all check for spark. The coil produces the power for the spark to ignite the fuel/ air mixture in the combustion chamber of the engine . The distributor systematically distributes or places that spark to the spark plugs in the firing order .
Could be a bad ignition coil either traditional type or C.O.P. (Coil on Plug) type
Do you have spark at the coil? If not it could be the coil but I would put my money on a faulty ecm. Happened to mine and the repaired ecm fixed it.
coil kaput buy new
BeCause the COIL makes the SPARK..IF U don't have the CORRECT voltage going 2 the positive side of the coil there will not B any spark.
the question,im not sure what your asking but the ignition coil would be the coil that feeds spark to you distributor,there woll be a coil wire or spark plug wire that runs from the coil to the center of your distributor cap and will have an electril wire from your ignition that supply's 12 volts to the terminal marked "+" on the coil when the key switch is turned to the run or start pos.and a electrical wire that runs from the distributor to the terminal marked "-"on the coil,unless it is a newer vehicle that has a coil for every cylinder,which would have a coil mouter over or close by every spark plug.
coil makes enough juice ( Amp) to spark the spark plugs. A faulty spark plug stops the coil to empty all the juices it has made and this makes the coil itself goes bad.
your coil is most likely gone
Bad coil Bad rotor
stick it on the spark plug, its a coil on plug stick it on the spark plug, its a coil on plug
Either the coil is bad or the ignition control module is bad.I would think the coil is faulty.
start with dist cap and rotor
Check the coil or coil packs if equipped.
The spark is always blue. If your coil is bad your engine will misfire.
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.
DEPENDS ON THE YEAR AND MOTOR,DO YOU HAVE SPARK PLUG WIRES?IF NOT,THEN YOU HAVE A SEPERATE COIL FOR EACH SPARK PLUG THAT SITS ON THE TOPS OF THE PLUGS,IF YOU DO HAVE SPARK PLUG WIRES THEN JUST FOLLOW IT FROM THE SPARK PLUG TO THE COIL!HOPE THAT HELPS
9 times out of 10 it is due to a bad coil. Where is your coil? Follow the spark plug wires until all of them come together. Auto parts store can check the coil for you.
