If your old truck ( you didn't mention the age ) has a points system distributor then replace the condenser and check the point gap. Quickest way to check a coil is to replace it with a known good coil . If at any time you have left the ignition on with the engine stopped then the constant current flow will burn coils
replace the coil and condenser as the spark has to be bright dark blue with a definite snap. The orange spark is an indication of either a failed condenser (first point to check by replacing) or a burnt out coil.
I hav solved the problem on my 1997 nissan truck, it had jumped time, put timing gears and chain, now it is wanting to flood out at idle, but runs good when past 2,000 rpms, have any suggestions or ideas, Thank You.
if not turning over don't have nothing to do with getting gas, Your problem is electrical, I would start with your coil . If tryed starting spray made no difference not good don't spry and more you can plow a hole in piston if fired with all that in there. Just check to see if your getting fuel to carb. , But i reallt thing it's in the coil,or the distrubter good luck
check your coil and see if you have fire.if you have fire then you need to check your fuel pressure. i have a mazda 2600i that did the same thing and it was the coil .did your truck back fire when you shout it off?. if it did iam pretty sure its your coil.note there is a module in side the dis very few people know about this but they are not notted for going bad good luck
At the cost of the igniter i recommend checking your pickup coil.( The 2 wire sensor in side of your distributor. The The igniter will not allow the coil to fire with out reference form the pickup coil. Coil has primary and secondary resistances. when the primary coil powers up and then pulses off, this cause a high voltage due to magnetic degeneration. Check the coils primary and secondary resitances along with the air gap in the pickup coil, and also check the resitances on the pickup coil. If i am right your igniter will be okay.Get a good manual for you truck, It will save you money down the road. Toyota does not have at test proseger for the ingiter.
Also check the wires in between the pickup coil and the igniter. I hope this helped.
