You should et some kind of a reading caue the omh can vary depedndig of the utside tem and the ohms always fluctate so rule of thumb if you have some numbers on your scale the contunity is there the actual problems in thse distributor are the pck up assemblies just replace the whole distri cause it is cheaper on the long run cuse eac hcomponent is expensive

Firing order 84 madza rx7


If your tach does not work that is a symptom. Of course a timing light is most useful. If not you can coil wires (swap with known good wire) ; check ignitor,(swap trail/lead ignitor plugs at distributor) coil, check with ohm meter.
Trailing ignitors are very common failures, especially when either jump starting or being jump started when a battery is stone dead. What happens is there can be a huge power spike through the ignition system damaging the electronics in the ignitor. 90% of trailing ignitor failures happen during a jump start procedure.
At this age though, wires and coils can be suspect. My recommendation for ignition parts, Mazda Mitsubishi Cap/rotor and NGK wires and plugs. They are good enough for Mazda factory race teams and I have been using them since 72 with no ignition related failures in racing or all the street vehicles that have been maintained. Most critical is the fit of the rotor, it should be very hard to install, very tight fit. If loose the rotors have a tendency to rotate and move causing changes in timing and at worse damaging the cap and rotor.

IGNITION COIL TESTING DODGE 2.7 INTREPID 2004


to check ignition coil, you need a digital volt meter put it on the ohms scale check primary resistance across primary coil positive terminal to secondary high voltage terminal. primary resistance should be 0.6 to 0.9 ohms and secondary resistance should be 6 to 9 kilo ohms. if you see zero ohms more likely ignition coil has open circuit.

No spark at plugs


the famous ignitor failure, but lets not condemd this device. The ignitor only generate current to the coil to collapse the magnetic flux that is built up. you may not have spark at the plugs but you need to know if you have spark at the coil, there are many times yes ignitor did solve the problem but the problem was the coil make it easy on youself open the distributor cap and have some one or you can do it. with the cap open remeber the position of the distributor rotor and crank the car,not to long is the rotor in the exact same position cause if it is it a timing belt.or that the rotor which is mounted in a fixed position may have spun allowing the shaft of the rotor to not move. disributor rotor do fail when the inner hold doent grip the shaft, and the cap yes it does fail its a carbon filled material and the do short out and so does the coil it short out internally then there is the ignition switch and yes it fails to provide power to the coil positive side.. Take this as a solution replace the ignitor, with a cap and rotor, and the coil it easier that way

94 toyota camery 4 cyl wont start Ichecked the fuel injectors there ok checked fuel pump works fine replace distributor cap and the ignitor but I dont get a spark at the sparkplugs.henrys


check all efi and ign fuses first...then check pickup coil and ignition coil in distributor w/ ohm meter...since you already replace the ignitor, then mostly likely it's the pickup coil or ignition coil...buy the whole

What would cause my car to not send spark to the spark plugs


The first thing is do you know when the last time was that the distributor cap, ignition rotor, and spark plug wires were changed?

There is the possibility that the ignition coil is faulty and first check to see if full battery voltage is getting to the "Pos" (+) positive side of the ignition coil when the key is in the "Run" position, and also that full battery voltage is getting through the "Pos" (+) or positive side of the ignition coil and over to the distributor ignition module, dis-connect the wire connector from the ignition module and if battery voltage is not present at the connector to the ignition module with the key in the "Run" position but it is present at the "Pos" side of the ignition coil, then the ignition coil is faulty. If battery voltage is present then check the ohms between the high tension terminal (where the coil wire goes on the ignition coil) and the "Pos" terminal on the ignition coil by first dis-connecting the wires from the ignition coil and then test with the "Neg" lead from the ohm meter in the high tension terminal on the ignition coil, and the "Pos" lead from the ohm meter to the the "Pos" terminal on the ignition coil, and the ohm reading should be between 6,000 and 30,000 ohms and if not replace the ignition coil. A faulty ignition coil can also damage the ignition module.

The ignition module and the pick-up coil/stator located inside of the distributor is what generates the signal that the ECM (Engine Control Module) uses to time and fire the fuel injectors, as well as the signal to run the fuel pump and the dwell signal timing to fire the ignition coil, and a faulty ignition module can cause any one of these systems to malfunction.

That could be a malfunction with the ignition module inside of the distributor, and you can remove the ignition module and have it tested for free at most auto part stores. If the ignition module does test out alright then the problem could still be in the pick-up coil/stator, (it can be tested using an ohm meter by dis-connecting the wire connector from the pick-up coil/stator and the ohm reading between the two wires from the pick-up coil/stator should be between 500 and 1500 ohm's, and both of the wires from the pick-up coil/stator should show an open loop or an infinite reading between each wire and ground) and if the pick-up coil/stator is found to be faulty then replace the entire distributor, or the distributor will have to be dis-assembled to install a new pick-up coil/stator.

If you do purchase a new ignition module be sure that it does come with a silicone grease or a die-electric compound because it is a heat sink and the ignition module will burn up without it.

To install the new ignition module first clean out the mounting surface inside of the distributor. Then completely coat the metal contact surface under the ignition module with a thick coat the silicone grease or die-electric compound and do not leave any of the metal contact surface of the ignition module un-coated with the silicone grease or die-electric compound, and be very careful not to over-tighten the ignition module or it will be damaged.

Let me know if you require a firing order diagram any further assistance with testing or diagnostic procedures.

I need to know how to test the ignition coil on a 1995 jetta


to test the coil you must use an ohm meter and remove the wire connections from the coil, first test the coil from B+ to the center coil wire tower, read the Resistance on the coil and write it down next test between the positive post and to the negitive post read the Resistance next test the negative side to the center post or tower read the resistance there should be no more than 2000 ohms resistance on any test and if it reads 0 resistance it means it's shorted and needs to be replaced, be sure to set the select lever to it's highest ohms resistance level before testing.

Ignition coil for 1993 civic


best way to test is connect to car and see if it gives spark with engine turning, because it gets ground pulse from the distributer,if pulse id not coming to ignition coil, then you need to change distributor.
