Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question. Start by verifiying that the check engine light comes on with the key on and that it goes off while cranking. This is very important. IF this checks out good, then we check the ignition coil inputs while cranking. (powers and ground)

It is possible that the ignition coil itself might just be bad or it may not have any power going to it so we will need to check that as well.

It is also possible that the tune up parts (secondary ignition components) are bad well. Check for spark coming right out of the ignition coil while cranking. Let me know.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.

9 dollars, 2 hours of my time, and I drove away. Your diagnosis was right on the mark. Thank you so much.
