Get a Haynes manual for your vehicle and use the troubleshooting guide there.  about $20 from amazon, auto parts store or haynes.com.  This WILL save you time and shortcut this and any future diagnosis. Haynes IMHO are top notch and I like them better than some factory service manuals that fgo for $100 and more.

David, 99 Saturn,  Cam position sensor codes seem to indicate a engine timing (not spark, but crankshaft/camshaft sync).  Old timing belts or worn tensioners can cause belts to jump a tooth or two which can have a pretty dramatic effect.  The belt could also be old/dryrot and have lost a tooth or two causing it to jump.  If any of these are the case, or if the timing belt interval is near,  replace timing belt, tensioner, idler roller if present and water pump.  FYI, quality OEM ignition wires shold last at least 10 years.  If they are really bad, you can open the engine compartment on a dark night and you will see sparks arcing between them and/or something metal nearby.  We all replace wires when we are not sure what the problem is, and regardless of what anyone tells you, it only rarely solves anything unless the car is more than 10 years old. 

good luck.

Had the same problem, car was misfiring on cylinder 3 and 4. replaced wires, plugs, and ignition coil. still misfired on the same cynlinders. turned out the main engine wiring harness plug in was coming loose. spent well over $150 on the unneccesary repairs and ultimately fixed the problem wit a $3 bag of wire ties to hold the plug in...

Disconnect the battery completely, try turning the key with the battery disconnected. Put the battery back together. The check engine light should be off now..

Hi, the first step I recommend is to check for spark. You can do this by starting the car and then carefully pulling up the boot to the #1 ignition wire at the coil. If sparks are jumping inside the boot, you have spark and the ignition system is working.
jturcotte_504.jpg
1. Ignition: If there is no spark, shut of the engine and use an ohmmeter to check the impedance of the coil. Take the boot off, and connect your ohmmeter from the coil terminal to the engine ground. The resistance should be around 10-20 kohms. If not, replace the coil. If yes, the problem is the ignition module under the coil.

Now, assuming you have spark (which I believe you do, because the coil runs 2 cylinders, and you only have one cylinder that is misfiring), the problem will be a lack of compression or a bad injector (or possibly the injector wiring).

Note: I will provide repair steps once the troubleshooting is complete and the problem identified.
Also, if you do not have a multimeter, you can get one for $10-20 at radio shack or even Walmart. It will save you money overall--or maybe you have a friend that you could borrow a meter from.

2. Injector: The next easiest test to run is to see if the injector solenoid is clicking. You can do this by holding a long screwdriver to the injector and hold the other end of the screwdriver to your ear. With the engine running, you should hear the injector clicking. If not, you have a bad injector or a wiring problem. To determine whether the problem is the injector or the wiring, pull the connector off the injector and measure the AC voltage in the connector with the engine running. The voltage should be 1-2 volts or similar to that voltage of any other injector connector.
If the voltage is good, but the injector is not clicking, replace the injector.

3. Valves/compression: the last possible reason for a misfire is a lack of compression. The intake valve must open to accept a fuel/air charge, and both valves must be closed for the cylinder to fire. Sometimes an exhaust valve will burn and not hold compression. A blown head gasket can also cause this problem. The test we use to check the valves is a compression test. You can borrow or purchase a compression tester if you get to this point. Remove a few of the spark plugs including the cylinder that is misfiring. Screw the compression tester into the spark plug hole and crank the engine for a few revolutions. Record the pressure on the gauge, release the pressure, and go on to the next cylinder. If the pressure is much lower on any cylinder as compared to the highest cylinder, the cylinder head will have to be removed to correct the issue.

Please let me know the results of your troubleshooting and feel free to ask questions as you go.

The problem is the ignition control module such is under the coil packs. It seems to be an internal problem in the design. I have seen it many times and if you don't belive as many will not. So disconnect the modules electrical connector and just let it sit for two to three days. After that clean ir replace your sparkplugs, they will be fails up dew to it running lean and rich. Plug it in. Plug it in and wala its fixed $ but only for a week or two then back to the same thing so in short change the ignition module and save time and money, and don't forget to thank your friendly neighbor hood mexican mechanic.

Paul you might want to replace the spark plug, make sure the gap on the plug is correct, make sure there is oil in the machine, some have a safety switch when the oil is low. If you cant buy a new spark plug you can sand off the tip that is probably black and replace it in the machine

No spark


To test the spark you will need a spark plug tester. Put one end of the tester on the spark plug and the other in the plug wire. Pull the cord and see if fire is there. If not you will need to replace the coil.

My son accidentally put straight gas in our gas weed wacker, now it won't start. drained gas and replaced with correct mix, still no go.


Try taking the spark plug out and spraying a little WD-40 in the hole and letting it set for a time. Then pull the cord slowly one time and then replace the spark plug and try to start.

I would change the spark plug first as it is lease expensive, if that improves but is still running rough then I would change the coils, you might want to check the sensor,also. Hope this helped Tim

Went through some water van died after sitting a day it started up but engine light is now on and sputters when stopped went to auto zone they say i have a 2 cylinder misfire what excactly does this mean...


It means that the number 2 cylinder (passenger front of the engine) is not working. Whether its spark, fuel, or mechanical. The first thing you can check is if there is spark to the cylinder. With the engine running remove the spark plug wire from the number 2 spark plug. Listen or look for spark out of the plug wire. If there isn't than you can check for spark out of the coil pack. Do this with a test light or spark tester. With the engine off remove the number 2 spark plug wire from the coil pack. With the spark tester installed or the test light hooked to ground and placed on the #2 coil post have some body crank the engine over. If ther4e is no spark that you might have a bad coil pack. If there is spark than possibly the plug wire is bad.

You should not drive it with a misfire as you could ruin the catalytic converter which is very expensive to replace.

When you say there is no fire, do you mean that you can't get it to act like it wants to start? Or, do you mean that when you pull the plug out and put it against the head, it has no fire? There is a difference. If you have pulled the plug and tested it that way, then it is a bad coil, (the part that connects to your spark plug).

However, if you haven't pulled the plug, then give me a description of how it is reacting.
Thanks,

Jim
