    ignition trouble!!

    hi,i changed the head gasket on my 96 1.6 16v and everything went back together great.but it would'nt start,after a few checks i realised there was no spark,over a few days under the bonnet it did spark on two ocasions.
    i have re-checked all electrics,fuses,everthing i disconnected in the first place.can anyone give me a point in the right direction? please.

    Does it have a coil pack or a dizzy and leads? I know about the Mk4 1.6 but not the Mk3. If it had leads did you remove them from the cap as you may have installed them in the wrong firing order.

    its the X16XEL engine with the direct ignition system but even if the leads were not in the correct order it should still spark should'nt it?

    IN that case try another coil pack, does sounds suspiciously like one to me. Maybe you've broken a connector on it's block connector.
