SOURCE: I have a Mazda astina
1 remove the cable from the coil to the distributor.
check this agains earth, when you turn the engine over.
if spark, suspect rotor arm is not setting spark to each spark plug lead.
open distributor and clean the rotor arm with a cloth or wire wool
not sand paper as this will take off too much and cause a problem
2 check inside distributor for moisture. spray inside with WD40 or equiventy water repelent.
3 if not spark at coil open distriutor cap and with ignition on, open and close points in distributor with a screw driver and check coil again against earth again if you get sparh, problem is points not opening and closing.
4 turn over engine with distributor cover removed to see if rotor arm is moving if not then cam drive to distributor is defective. this controls points and rotor arm.
if rotor arm turning and spark at points but no spark at coil suspect Low tension wiring or coil needs replacement.
i hope this was helpful
