Eurocar Specalists :

hello there !!

Eurocar Specalists :

the first thing and it is a quick test is to get the car running and take a cup of water and pour the water on the ignition coil and see if it dies first!!

Eurocar Specalists :

if it does not stall then have the vehicle scanned for codes in the ecm to see if you have a crankshaft or camshaft sensor codes

Eurocar Specalists :

please let me know

Customer:

not accepting answer as i have already stated i have fitted new coil so answer is not appropriate

Customer:

do not accept answer as i already stated i have fitted new coil

Eurocar Specalists :

i understand it is a new coil but i have seen new coils been defective !!! that is why i asked to perform that test first to see if that acts up and dies!

Eurocar Specalists :

have you had the ecu scanned for codes because if the first test i asked to do does not react then the ecu needs to be check to see if there is any codes pertaining to the crank or cam sensor on the vehicle!
