Hi there,I'll try to help you.You had no spark on NO 6 coil, so what have you done now?Your description is a little vague.Gary
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The spark plugs where canged along with the injector but i pulled all the connectors off and the motor would die down when the connector was disconnected. So i would pull the 6 cynlinder off and the motor ran steady. So i figured the connector was bad. So ehen i got back home i let the motor cool off. Once cool i cut the three wires to the connector splice the wires and put another one on. Now all it does is turn over but wont start. Im going to try the fuses tommorow then i dont where to go from there

Hello again,You are saying that when you disconnected each coil, you could see each one made a difference, but NO. 6 made no difference to how the engine runs, is that correct?The engine is misfiring on Cylinder no.6, it could be spark, injector pulse or compression, has all of this been checked?Did you have the ignition on when you cut this harness?Did you cut the wires one at a time?Gary
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes I cut all three on the number 6 connector. Once I put the wires back together it wouldn't just turns over and it's like the starter's not catching. It sound like it wants to start but doesnt. Like i said im going to get all new fuses and see what happens then. If it dont start ill give you a call.
