Question about 1993 Toyota Celica
I drove the car to my work and it worked fine, but when I tried to start it in the afternoon, the engine turned, but wouldn't fire. I thought it was the gas pump, but it was fine. Then, my friend and I found out that there was not spark. I replaced the coil and the Igniter without any luck. I do not want to replace the whole distributor because it is expensive. At this point I do not know if it is the computer or what? Any idea?
Would you know if the timing belt is broke? once the timing belt is broke, there would be no spark at all.
you can remove the cover of the distributor but make sure that the high tension wire coming from the coil is near a ground in order to discharge the spark, it will break your coil if you tried starting it with the wire away from a ground where it can jump. the high voltage would jump inside your coil and break your insulation.
after opening the distributor cover, check if the rotor is rotating. if it is not rotating, then you have a timing belt issue.
