If I dont have the proper tool to test for fire, what would be the next best procedure to check if its getting fire
I have a 2001 pontiac grand am and it wont start. Its getting gas and turning over but it
seems as if its not getting fire. I do not have the proper tool to test it, so I was wondering
what other procedure can I do to check for fire?
Pull a plug wire,get small srcew driver stick in end of plug wire,hold to a bolt for ground,and get someone to turn car over,you will see spark,or not.
it dont have plug wires....its a 2001 pontiac grand am...HELPPPPP
if it does have wires where are they located
If it's the 4 cylinder you don't have spark plug wires. If it's the 6 cylinder you do. HTH. -Jim
its a 4 cylinder so it dont so how do i check for fire with out the proper tool
Same as T S T said. Only difference is you unplug the "coil over" that plugs directly onto the spark plug. Be sure to hold the handle of the screwdriver with either a heavy rag or heavy rubber gloves so you don't get a powerful shock. A modern ignition system generates about 60,000 volts DC! HTH. -Jim
