Question about 1992 Toyota Pickup
I had been having problems with the truck stalling as I'm driving. 1st time I was able to get jumped. Not the second. But that time it sat for 45 min. and started up. Next time is wouldn't start. Saw that the distributor cap wire from the coil was fried. The plugs were not looking good and one plug wire melted right above the plug. I replaced all that and I'm sitting here with a pick up coil ($107) I was told might be bad. I don't know how to use a ohm meter yet or I would test it before I wasted that money. What are some other reasons it won't start at this point? thanks

Try cleaning the throttle body.Check the air-gap for the pick-up coil inside the distributor assembly(use a brass feeler gauge)
Check valve clearances if needed(possible tight intake valve adj.)
Check base timing(follow instr. via under hood label)
Hope this helps.

I had a prolem like this one time a while back. what i did was got the wiring diagram and checked everything that was running through that 30 amp fuse. on the one i was working on it ended up being an injector wire pinched under the valve cover and it didnt short out till the car was driven til it warmed up and expanded after the valve cover gasket was changed. hope this helps!

Make sure you have the timing right. Best way is to take #1 spark plug out, stick your finger in the spark plug hole, and turn th engine until it starts to blow your finger out. Now you're sure it's on compression stroke. Then, trun the engine by hand to get the timing mark set to zero. Now, take your distributor cap off, and make sure the rotor is pointing to #1 spark on your distributor cap. Where ever the rotor is pointing, is #1. Check rotor direction of rotation before you put the rest of the wires on.
You still may have to turn the distributor a bit once you have it close. When you start turning it over, turn the distributor slowly one direction and then the other until it starts.
If you have all that done right, check for spark, and fuel, and get back to me.

My experience with Bosch ignition system (found on european cars) is the spark control is sent by the ignition module. The ignition module has to receive an input usually from a crankshaft sensor. This is usually near the crankshaft pulley on many cars. I am currently working on a 04 Toyota RAV4 and it has exactly that. If your sensor wiring gets loose or a bad wire then the computer won't signal for spark. This may not be your problem but it sounds like it probably is.
(By the way on my Alfa Romeo it is a sensor around the bell housing that senses the teeth on the flywheel) Good luck!
