Ok no problem sir. I can help you on this page.

Please explain the minimum spark issue for me. How do you know it has little or minimum spark?

Is it weak spark or do only some/certainly cylinders get spark while cranking?

USED A SPARK TESTER ON ALL CYLINDERS WHICH ALL CYLINDERS HAVE SPARK BUT NOT STRONG
Auto Mechanic: Amedee, Former ASE Master Tech replied 5 months ago

Thank you for that information.

Have you checked power going to the ignition coils when cranking?

If so, what were the results/readings?

I have 5 volts with ignition on
Auto Mechanic: Amedee, Former ASE Master Tech replied 5 months ago

On what color wire?

Ask Your Own Car Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
green , green /black , green/white , green / yellow
Auto Mechanic: Amedee, Former ASE Master Tech replied 5 months ago

Wrong wires. Try the black/white wire. :)

Ignition Switch ?
Auto Mechanic: Amedee, Former ASE Master Tech replied 5 months ago

If you have low voltage on the black/white wire, yes, I would suspect a faulty ignition switch provided all fuses are good.
