    car wont start need help

    i had a question for u guys if you could help me i appreciate it. recently my car was running like crap and bogging down and it had no power so i took my spark plug wires out and they were melted from the headers. so i decided to change them and the plugs and when i was finished i went to start it and it cranked over but it didnt start. so my friend told me its probably a bad coil and i just got done replacing it 20 mins ago and it still cranks but wont start i need big help

    Make sure you have the wires in the right spots.

    ignition control module may have been shot....the little rectangular chip looking thing by ur coil, take it to the auto store and they should be able to get it tested for free....that may be ur problem

    Sound like the ICM is bad. It just cranks up but won't start up? It has happen to me.

    hmmm,
    1 wire at a time...well you would know if you put a fitted set on or universal really by what slack you had.

    Real easy to test them, I know autozone does.

    i would verify the wires are connected to the right cylinders according to the book. And then read the codes in the ecm if you have a way to do that. Otherwise, you're throwing darts in the dark. Also make sure your coil is plugged in and has power. (coil or spark thingy)

    yea i found the problem the coil wasnt getting any power so i had to trace it all the way to the battery and i found that these two wires werent connected i think my friend screwed it up but i connected them and it started right up i almost gone through a set of tires already leaving burnouts everywhere
