My van does not have any fire going to the ignition coil and it hesitated as it was out of fuel before it shut off now it won't start at all. We have checked all the fuses and we have checked the spark plug to check to see if it was firing and used a test light on the plug wire for power that unplugs from the coil. We replaced the coil now I need the firing order.
Do you
have the same problem?

The coil pack gets its signal from the power control module (pcm) that gets its signal from the camshaft position sensor and the crankshaft position sensor I would look into checking those sensors if not replace them and if you still don't have spark then you should be able to remove a cover on top of engine were the camshafts are located turn engine over and see if the cams are moving if they are then the pcm needs to be tested. Here is the firing order below. Check out the diagrams (Below). Please let us know what happens.

My van come up with a code for misfire at #4 cylinder. I just replaced the spark plugs about 1000 miles ago. Could it be a bad plug or probaly the wires? Which hole is the #4 cylinder?

Thanks,
MIke

I took off the spark plug wires and numbered them and when I put them back on the car will not start. Can you please give me the proper configuration. Thanks.

The engine is a 3 liter V6. We just need a diagram of the spark plug wires. Also the fan belt is torn to shreds. I found a piece of it in the grill, and the fan is not turning. Would that cause the car not to start and is it hard to put on and what tools would you need.

Thanks so much for your help.

The Injector can be bench tested and cleaned or it can be done on car as well, it car is hooked up to a special fuel system cleaner, if done off car all injectors should be cleaned and flow tested. You can also replace it if you wish, see pic for firing order.
