Q: My fiat punto cylinder 1 is not firing. I have replaced plugs leads and coil packs

asked by on

I have replaced the coil packs but it is still not firing in cylinder 1. Also leads and plugs done. I suspect ecu but I don't want to purchase until sure. I will pressure test tomorrow but if this passes then is there any other possibilities besides a faulty ecu? Thanks
My car has a manual transmission.

Hello.

If your cylinder one is not firing then I would test to make sure that the coil is getting power and go from there. If it isn’t then it may be possible that the computer is bad, as that is where the coil gets its signal from.
