It was boiling so they changed the gasket and did skimming cylinder head it started quite well. We drove it and parked the following morning trying to start it failed only to discover that there is no spark on the coils. What could be the problem?

Check crank angle sensor is plugged in and tight. Also, run a scan just to see if there are any codes set.

Hello EMMANUEL KAWALA,

I am sending you a link to an article that features written step by step instructions and pictures explaining how to scan for codes yourself. Also, I have included a link to our YouTube channel with a how to video on code scanning.

This is applicable even if your check engine light is not on.

Most scanners are inexpensive to purchase, you can purchase one online from sites like Amazon.com
