Test the continuity in the coil. Also test the connection end to see if it is getting power to the coil. I have also received bad coil packs from auto parts store , so if its under warranty change it just to make sure . Also, take the tape off the wiring going to the coil pack and check for breaks inthe wiring. Timing issues or crankshafts or crankshaft sensors can cause this. The sensor itself runs $20.00 and up. Hope this helps. Spark plug wires can have breaks in them also.

I have a 2001 Audi A6. It has 105,000 miles on it. The problem is the car sputters and misfires when accelerating. Once the RPM is up to 3,000 the problem stops. I?ve changed the spark plugs, coils and plug wires. The problem went away for about month but, now the problem is back. Please help.

My 89 f150 run for about a mile/ mile and a half then sputters and dies. Takes 10-20 minutes to restart then repeats. Is lack of grease on icm possible reason?

It would usually take longer than that on the ignition control module may need to look into a fuel filter is clogged or if the high pressure pump is not working

As with any no start issue, you will have to figure out if you are dealing with a spark or fuel problem to proceed.
Either problem could be a faulty relay.
If it is a no spark problem, check to see if you are getting voltage to the coil.
Any trouble codes stored in the computer ?

I have ford f150 1989 4speed manual 5.0. It's jerks I can't fix it. I have put 2 new fuel pumps,did the whole tuneup, new tps censor, new erg valve, new ignition coil,and it's still jerks.

Did you check the fuel pump pressure before and after the pumps ?
You'll have to figureout if it is a fuel or ignition problem.Isthe check engine light on ?
Usually a "jerking" engine is an ignition problem.
You have a distributor and an ignition module that could be the problem too.

-turns over but won't start -changed fuel filter

Check your battery as it supplies juice for the coil. Then check your coil or coilpak and the crankshaft sensor. The bad spark may be an underlying reason for how the truck has been running.

Do you know if the fuelpump is working? The Inertia sensor may have tripped while you changed regulators. You may need to reset the button on it to connect the fuelpump.

While drving my 89 towncar, its starts to break down like its bucking. Seems like a spark plug is not firing or a wire is bad. I just had it uned up about 3000miles ago and don't know what the issue is....

if you replaced your plugs and wires 3000 miles back-Check your coil (s) and change your fuel filter

A dirty fuel filter will cause your car to buck too!

'91 F150 won't start

I guess there could be debris in the tank - but the fuel filter will catch it and clog up (is that a hint, or what),

Other possible is the ignition coil... the are plastic inside and they dry out and crack inside.... when they are hot - open circuit... When they are cool, closed circuit - working...

so, next time it dies, check for spark. Otherwise, replace the fuel filter (hopefully you have one OUTSIDE the fuel tank).
Let us know - please... -Jim

04 f150 jerking going uphill

Ignition timing would be #1 on the list. Also check your plug wires, or change them. Check your air filter, and change the fuel filter. It could also be your egr system, faulty ignition coil, or a vacuum leak at the intake manifold.

89 f150 wont fire

i suspect a fuel pump malfunction. i would check there first. make sure the fuel **** fuse is good and well. check the lines for blockages. after you run the fuel pump/fuse/line test, go to the distributor/coil and test the spark value. i would also check wires as well. your problem should be in one of these specific areas.
