You have to check injector pulse with a niod light


Pull plug wire off at plug and test for spak at plug




Noid Light


Customer: replied 10 years ago.
No, where do I get a Noid Light?

Does the injector pulse control the spark for the cylinders?

The spark coming off of the coil is two to three at the beginning, none while cranking and one when the ignion is cut off.
Expert:  Marc replied 10 years ago.



Noid lights are cheap and you can get them at a good parts store.


Pulse does not control spark but by know if you are missing pulse and spark the diagnoses trail leads in one direction . Where as if only spark is missing the problem goes in another direction . All part of proper diagnosis

I just hope that every answer I get doesn't cost me $10.00. 'Cause I sure haven't gotten my answer yet. But, I appreciate the answers.
