SOURCE: 87 ranger wont spark....New coil, and pickup coil

Check to see if the rotor button is turning,that will tell you if the timing belt is broke or not,also,the ignition module tfi module is most likely the problem if the timing belt is not broke.

SOURCE: 1987 ranger 2.9 V6 turns over fine, but no spark

Check the ignition module its usually a silver box bolted onto the Firewall or fender on the right side. Replace it.

SOURCE: My 84 ranger completely shuts down while I'm

Silly suggestion i know from a professional mechanic but try leaving the fuel cap loose in case its not drawing air into the tank and its creating a vacumn in the tank which means that the fuel pump cannot draw fuel up .Try that for a day or so and if it doesnt work then keep this post on your Email and get back to me .The clue is the petrol in the carb intake and if iam right drill a small vent hole in teh filler cap

One reason your 91 Toyota pickup 3.0 v6 has no spark is because you battery could be dead.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1985 Chevy El Camino 305ci. Turned over good but wouldn't fire. Replaced contrrol module and it started fine for about 2 months, then did the same thing. Replaced dist cap, rotor & coil. Start


Had an 84 silverado 305 that did the same thing. Try giving it a full tune up. Plugs, wires... Mine turned out to be fouled plugs. I didn't find that out till after i tore it down & put a timing set in it. Wasn't getting good enough spark.

95 lumina van 3.1 v6 lack of power in 2 cylinders compression good, new cap,rotor,wires,plugs and coil!!!! any ideas???adirondack tire could not figure it out!! is there a pick up coil inside the dist


have you had a compression test done to check head gasket problem
misfires are most likely from faulty/dirty injectors
problem ignition igniters will cause more than misfires , it it runs at all
run the fault codes to find the fault area

There may be no injector pulse if the computor does not see a RPM signal.
There will be no spark if the ignition module does not see a dist pulse from the dist pickup.......a RPM signal.
Because you do not have both ......I would suggest to check/change the dist pick up.
Follow the wires from the ignition module inside the dist to the pickup which is also inside the dist.
If it is just a bad dist pickup....keep all your old parts as good spares.
Also...is the dist turning? to provide a RPM signal?
You will have to remove the dist to change the pick-up.....mark your timing locations......"rotor position" and "dist body location"before removal.
A quick test before installing the "repaired dist" .....plug it in the the truck wiring and turn on the key....DO NOT CRANK THE ENGINE OR YOU WILL LOSE YOUR DIST ROTOR CORRECT POSITION......as you spin the dist by hand .....the injectors should spray.
