Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved.
4 cylinder or V6 engine?
Have you replaced distributor cap and rotor?
I think problem is distributor cap and rotor. If any cylinder gets spark we know the coil is working and the distributor is what distributes the spark to proper cylinder. So replace cap and rotor then problem should be taken care of. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.
That would mean the wire is problem. You can swap a wire with another cylinder to see if that solves problem if so this verifies wire needs to be replaced. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.
If still no spark with a known good wire this would mean distributor cap and rotor needs to be replaced.
If wire is getting spark but not putting out spark that would mean wire is the problem. If wire isn't receiving spark then cap/rotor need to be replaced.
I'm not really understanding what you are trying to say. If spark plug wire is putting out spark then the spark plug is receiving it..
Ignition coil sends spark to coil/rotor, coil/rotor sends spark to spark plug wire, spark plug wire sends spark to spark plug, spark plug sends spark to cylinder.
If plug isn't getting spark then it would be caused by wire, distributor cap, or rotor. I'd actually check for spark though, just pulling off wire and seeing it doesn't make a difference could mean anything related to cylinder 3 such as compression or injector.
Sounds good, let me know how it turns out. Thanks.
Ever get it figured out?
