Several things cause the coil to work, a bad cam or crank sensor will cause it not to spark. a bad fuel pump or relay can cause a no start situation

The fireing problem with my old truck could very well be that the high tension distributor coil is going out. What's the best way to check the coil?

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

Truck want start

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.

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

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

You may wan't to replace the coil pack. If the coil pack is faulty there will be no current to the plugs. Have it replaced and you'll surely be good.

Truck engine turns over but does not fire.

Is there spark coming out of coil? Check for injector pulse also check ASD relay. If all these are ok it may be worth while to check the crankshaft position senser and the pick up coil.

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

1984 toyota pickup 22r motor. No fire to distributor, I have power to coil but no power from coil to coil wire to distributor. coil, distributor modgual, altunator, all checked good. any ideas wall help.

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.
