at the coild does the black wire show a good ground when ohmed ?and your 100% sure you have no spark?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
ok, the black wire at the front 2 cyl coils shows 0L on the multimeter. and so does the black wire an the harness plug for the coils.
Expert:  Gary replied 3 years ago.
ok the black should be a good ground.check G102 and G104 for being clean and tight.if they are ok then the ground wire is the problem from the coil to the ground locationsgraphicgraphic
