Question about 1990 Dodge Shadow
I have replaced the coil the ignition coil computer cap and roter have power to igntion coil and coil to distributer all low end power no high end spark from coil to distributer what am i missing
There is a capacitor (used for noise suppression) which connects to the base area if the distributor. Its purpose is to allow noise (AC) to pass through it and go to ground. DC does not affect this capacitor, it shows an open circuit to DC, UNLESS it is shorted. If it does, as was in my case, it will immediately cause the 30A fusible link, or current limiter on the positive terminal of the battery to open up and remove power to ignition. Remove the capacitor from the base and reapply power. If this was your cause, then the 30A fusible link current limiter will not blow/open.
Hope this helps.

Had same problem. Few thing may be, like the pickup located inside the ignition (works ,like a crack sensor) it costs about $10.00. Or may be a main rerlay that controsl sparks and fuel injection, relay is located at the drivers side. Fixed changing the main relay that control spark and fuel injectors. VOILA!!!! runs again!!!!

THERE IS A STATOR IN THE DISTRIBUTOR, THIS IS THE SAME AS A CRANK SENSOR, HAVE YOU CHANGED IT?
