GT or GTS? The GT has the 1.8L 1ZZ FE-- Both with 16 valve-- with four (4) coils, one for each cylinder, and the GTS has a 1.8L 2ZZ GE,--still a 1.8 but with a bigger bore and shorter stroke--- it is the next version of the ZZ family. Anyway.. the two use different coils, and if it's not getting spark hopefully you used Denso Iridium Plugs. They are what your car needs, there are several varities but the best is NP5304 You should not have to gap them but if a plug got bumped be sure it's at 0.04". Coil wire #1 should be on the #4 coil, and the #3 wire on the #2 coil. Firing order is and cylinder #1 is passenger side.


how do you know it is getting fuel?
