i have a 1997 ford escort lx 2.0 i put a timing belt, waterpump, coil pack, wires, spark plugs, IAC, egr, mass air flow sensor, o2 sensors, and what ever else you need to replace when i have tried all i can think of. The car turns over but wont start and i checked fuel delivery, and has fuel. i checked the spark and its not sparking so i put a new coil pack again and still no spark?
It may not be getting power to the new coils. It could be the ignition switch. It could be a safety function. It could be a blown fuse. --- Find the root cause of the problem before throwing more new parts at it.
I think this bugger has a crank angle sensor. Make sure it's plugged in.
Thank you. I checked the ignition switch, fuses, and the crank sensor they are working fine , do you know if the ECC is the problem? or if the the ignition system has a relay switch for the starter?
the starter's relay switch is the beloved starter solenoid. There is nothing between the solenoid and ignition switch.
Haven't you thrown a diagnostic machine on this?
isn't this what the ECC is supposed to do?
I put a obd2 computer on it and it has no codes to read and I couldn't get diagnostic information. I guess it might be the main computer. Thanks.
damned ECC is just a relay. nothing else. Think for a moment what the diagnostics are doing. They are only as good as the information they are getting. If they aren't seeing the whole picture, they will not be able to diagnose anything....insufficient data never helped anyone. Not sure what the answer is, but to have a finger in every pot of soup, so you can tell what's gone cold is the idea here, no?
Ok I appreciate your time and knowledge but make sure you take care of yourself. It's not good to get mad with minute things in life, getting upset doesn't get you anywhere and sometimes a dog that barks doesnt do anything.
see. our friend llregal has got me started, like a pitbull who won't let go until he's rewarded with a tasty morsel, or encouraged to leave...
Lol thanks and have a nice day
