2001 mustang v6 won't start, coil pack?
My Mustang has been set up for over a year. I put in a new battery, replaced oil and filter, put in new coolant, new plugs, new fuel filter, and new gas. It cranks but will not start. I hear the fuel pump and have gas at the rails ( Schroeder valve). I think I may not be getting spark.

I set my multimeter to 200 ohms and checked the three terminals on the coil. First 2 show 1.2 for resistance and third shows 0.7. Does this indicate a bad coil pack? Is this enough to keep it from starting?

The wiring attachment to the coil pack also seems a little brittle. Perhaps I should replace it?

Check for spark at distributor if you got it the coil is good. Then check spark at the plugs. If you font got it there. Pull your distributor cap and check your cap, rotor, and distributor for corrosion may have corroded up setting check her out :bigthumbsup

I don't think it has a distributor, just a coil pack. 2001 Mustang v6 3.8 liter.

Check for spark at the plugs ill check my Mitchell if you got spark with no start for a tsb.

I would recommend stating here with wmburns Crank with no start check list.

If you do a search before starting a thread, you can find lots of good stuff (especially from wmburns,) and often avoid being told to check the distributor that you DON'T have under YOUR hood.

Good luck.

Common practice to check coil distributor for spark if u got no distributor then just check the coils out like I said. Get the codes come back with more info
