If the other coil has spark, your cam and crank sensors are fine. How have you verified no spark? Is this all the time or intermittent? What code numbers are coming up when the ECM is scanned?

First I unplug the spark plug wires from the coil and no spark exep on 1/5 and some times 2/6, then I check for pulsation on the wires to feed the coil and I have pulsation light only on 1/5 the others is steady light

We are quizzing you so much because everything is pointing to a bad PCM, although it could just as easily be the wiring in between the PCM and ignition module. I would also be very suspicious of the coil being the cause if it does turn out to be a PCM.

There is no ignition Module. I misspoke when I mentioned that. The PCM does that job. It's the wiring between the coil and PCM I meant.

That should be pretty obvious with the wire colors.

There is nothing he can adjust in the computer to make ignition drivers start working so I would be very suspect of that story.


Compression Test-Test Results
The indicated compression pressures are considered within specification if the lowest reading cylinder is within 75 percent of the highest reading. For additional information, refer to the Compression Pressure Limit Chart.
