Question about 1994 Toyota Camry

Diagram for replacing distributor, cap, rotor...

Had a problem when car died and would restart. Had system checked and shop said PCM circuit kept blowing fuses. They checked and said coil, cap, rotor, wires and plugs needed replaced. Got the estimate and said that I should replace entire distributor, wires, plugs. Would it not be better to replace cap, coil, rotor first to solve shorting problems?

    I have replaced the ignition switch, th coil, distributor cap and rotor. Autozone reps suggested clutch safety switch but I don't think that year had one, at least I don't find it where it is supposed to be located. Please help.

Replace the coil. It is shorted out. I have changed quite a few coils for the exact same symptom.

The graciousness of a FixYa rating for my assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.

Engine died while driving, no spark, replaced coil, now starts, idles, runs well at low rpm, but misfires when accelerating. No check engine costs thrown. What should I check next.


Change your ignition module. The distributor is a weak point of the Honda, I will always change out the whole thing than just try the coil.

Change the pick-up coil. You have to remove the distributor to do it.
Cheapest way is to buy a reman distributor and just replace it. Just remember which way the rotor is facing before you remove it.

If the distributor cap falls down onto the rotor button then you have the wrong distributor cap and it is too big for your distributor. Run fault codes to check for accelerator position sensor fault and check MAP/MAF sensors.

Since you have replaced all of the parts, perhaps the problem is the wires. Check continuity of critical wires. Are you getting power to the computer, ignition module and coil? Check continuity of wires from computer to ignition module and crank sensor. Check for bent pins and pushed back female terminals in connectors.

No fire to distributor


I'm sure you know the fuel pump won't have any affect on the ignition.
You may need a repair book to get the procedures and wiring diagrams to troubleshoot the ignition system.
I am assuming a new coil came with the replacement distributor. Did the cap and rotor get replaced too ?
Do you have voltage going to the distributor coil ?
Is the rotor turning when the engine is cranked ?

You need to check for power with a test light to the distributor components.Check for power at bat terminal on distributor while cranking.. I would replace the module and coil, plenty of them at the salvage yard. Testing them is not always correct off the car by the zone.
