not getting fire to the spark plugs?

Asked by Dec 26, 2013 at 01:25 PM about the 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car turns over but will not crank. I checked all fuses and there were good. I took the spark plug wire off and put a screw driver in it and put it close to the frame and got no arc when I had someone turn over the car. I just replaced the coil packs about two months ago. Any Ideas?

Did the car just quit while you were driving? How many miles is on it?

check your coils and PTU, also might want to check into your ECU,, also did you check all the wires or just one?

Also remove timing belt cover and see if its still intact. If timing belt broke you will have no spark. 2003 model if its never been changed it probably about time. If it was running fine and just quit also due compression check if you suspect a timing belt issue. Might have some bent valves now.
