Ok as you have replace the above, try this next remove 1 spark plug and reconnect it to the plug lead, next step place the plug on somewhere so the thread bit is touching earth/ground - on the car (Not near any petrol/gas points) and turn the engine over by the key (get a friend to do this)so you can look at the plug, just do this for a second or two and see if the plug is creating a nice healthy blue spark. if it isnt then the coil could be at fault if it does then electrics are fine and now you move onto a fuel issue, Hope this helps a little

I had my 92 prelude started once i put a new battery in after sitting for 2 years. The next day it wouldnt start i have new dizzy new plugs new wires new coil and the icm and now it wont start. I have fire...

Check the inside of the distributor cap for "carbon tracks", which is a bad cap with a path to ground for the ignition pulse. You would need a new dist. cap and rotor, if you see those carbon tracks.

I replaced the rotor an distrubtor cap changed an the guy took the hole distrubtor out and now it want start

If the plugs are getting spark, you just need to reset the timing. Line up the marks on the crank pulley and put the rotor at the number one plug wire. It will either be correct or 180 degrees off.
Once the engine is running you will need to use a timing light to set the timing to spec.

Won't run, got fuel, got spark from coil to distributer but will not fire. Tried new plugs, fuel filter and dust. cap. No go.

You may want to change your rotor bug in distrubtor,If this don't work you may have bent or wornout shaft goig down from distrubutor inside motor. But if your getting fire to the coil but not the distrubtor i think the rotor bug will fix it. Good luck to you.

Changing pickup coil

You have to remove the distributor from the engine then remove the distributor shaft from the distibutor housing, then you can remove & replace the pickup coil. Make sure you marke the exact location of the distributor body in relation to the intake manifold and note exactly where the rotor is pointing in relation to the distributor cap. I always set the timing marks on the front pulley at zero and make sure that the rotor is pointing at the #1 plug wire terminal on the cap before removing any distributor as it makes getting it in time easier if you lose your marks. You should reset the ignition timing when you have it all back together again as you'll most likely be off a few degrees. Some of these distributors had problems with the magnets in the distibutor shaft that would mimic a failing pickup coil and they were prone to drive gear wear. If you suspect any of those problems it's often easier to replace the entire distibutor with a reman unit.

Check the resistance of the pick-up coil in the distributor. Reading should be between 800 to 1200 ohms. Disconnect the two wire connection at the distributor control module to measure the resistance.
Let me know.

I have a 1994 lincoln continental and i am having problems getting it to fire. sometimes it will just fire up and the next it just quits firing. the coil,icm,pickupcoil,and cap and rotor

Hi, you listed coil, pickup coil and cap and rotor.if you allready replace those parts this can be another test, this can do what you are describing ,... leave the cap out so you can see the rotor, turn the crankshaft back and foward about 4 inches each way with a ratchet by the bolt head inside the balancing pulley, if the rotor dont move when you move the ratchet you have a bad timing chain.good luck
