SOURCE: can get the car start from the distribuitor no signal to spark plugs

You need to do a test on the electronic engine control system for fault codes and check the fuel pressure. To do the fault code test and see the code definitions go here. The single biggest issues with this year are the ignition module on the distributor and the distributor pickup coil inside the distributor..

My 97 Acura 4cyl manual trans won't start because spark is not happening at right time.


If you have not removed the distributor, and you are sure you have good compression, it would have to be a broken distributor.
The distributor is driven off the cam.

1997 mazda 626 won't start.


Are the plugs wet with fuel?
Check for spark. No spark? it may be the ignition module.

Plugs dry and spark present? No fuel?Spray a little starting fluid and see if it will run on that.
Then check pump fuses and for fuel pump noise.

Am not getting spark in my 1991 olds cutlass ciera. what could it be? for a week it would start sometimes, and the next time it won't start again. now it won't start at all. checked a plug...


have you checked the distributor cap and rotor because the spark has to come from these two things first and should be replaced when they get bad so please make sure when you check the distributor cap that you use a permanant black marker on the side of distributor cap and where it was placed at so you know the same place you took it off. If you take off the distributor cap and it shows the connections inside showing black on them that this is your problem and all distributors get bad because they become worned out by the rotor inside wear. If the distributor and cap are clean or do not have any black stuff on them that it could be the coil that went bad too so its a trouble shotting by looking at first the distributor cap and rotor. If you know how to use a multimeter and have one handy that you can check how much voltages is coming through the spark plug wires.

What is needed for a tune up?


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. For a tune up, you would need to change spark plugs, coils, distributor cap, coil pack, and wires. You would change the air filter and the fuel filter also. Change your pcv valve as well. You can also change all your fluids and filters, such as oil, coolant fluid, and transmission fluid.
