I pulled wire off #4 coil and plugged it onto old coil and started engine the coil had spark on start up but after 10 sec lost spark. What would cause the spark loss after 10 sec.

Good afternoon and welcome to JustAnswer!!

My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.

What is compression of misfire cylinder? If you remove the valvecover and spin the engine over does the misfiring cylinder rocker arms move as much as the rest? Likely not and you will need to remove the head and inspect the lifters.. See attached for the most possible cause..

The picture is one I repaired here at the dealership.. The lifter failed and wiped the camshaft out.. To properly repair you will need new lifters and camshaft..
