I am working on a 1993toyota Corolla 1.8 no fire changed whole distributed assembly tested power coming to coil it's good still no spark checked all fuses there ok any sugestions

if the coil is tested fully and is good where have you checked for it being good? have you checked if the HT lead from the coil to the distributor is carrying power? If you have power at the distributor cap , all the contacts are good, the rotor is fine, (check current at the distributor cap centre pin) then the likely problem is the machanism for firing, i.e. Hall sensor . I would check all the HT leads, distributor cap, rotor etc. you should carry out the checks systematically. I.E. First check at the coil with a multi meter. Then check at the end of the Ht lead from coil to distributor , actually within the lead itself , for current. then attach it to distributor if it shows a current...if you are getting a current from the distributors centre pin the issue is probably the cap itself, the rotor arm, the firing system, it will probably be electronic as mechanical distributors went out some years before I think. or if that is okay, the leads themselves. I would guess that is is distributor cap or firing system related'

On a ram 1500 if I turned the pulley number of time and sstopped the groove at TDC but not in cylinder 1 position will the truck run bad or the timing offset?

the timing mark indicates where the no 1 piston is in the bore. It can be at tdc compression stroke (firing) or at tdc exhaust. If it is on compression stroke ( test by removing no 1 plug and feeling the pressure under your thumb) then the rotor button will be pointing to no 1 HT lead in the distributor cap. If it is on exhaust stroke the rotor button will be 180 degrees from no 1 ht lead . It it is point to no 1 HT lead on compression stroke the truck will start ___IF YOU HAVE THE CORRECT FIRING ORDER FOR THE ht LEADS ) and if it is 180 degrees out it will not start. If it starts and runs but backfires then you will have the firing order wrong on 2 leads

95 jag 4.0 no spark, but power to both coil wires , plugs are good

check the distributor cap and rotor button for shorts /cracks and cleanliness. If you have changed the HT leads then check the firing order . Check the HT lead from the coil to the distributor cap.

What is the order of spark plug cables to the distributor for mazda 323 2001

On the distributor cap on each HT Lead connection there is a number presenting the spark plug connection with the cap. if the distributor cap has only the number "1" and not on the other hole for the HT lead connection then you fit the spark plug one lead and following the clockwise rotation fit the other HT leads. 1 for first spark plug,2-for second spark plug etc. First spark plug is fro the front of timing belt side. Good Luck!

Have a 2001 Magnum 318 V-8 W/Intermitted Popping/Missfiring With No Check-Engine Light ! Ignition-Wires,Spark-Plugs,Rotor-Distributor-Cap,Coil+TPS All New ,Still Act's-Up As Mentioned Above!!

I would be checking the firing order of the HT leads as you may have crossed leads which will cause the problems.. Ensure that the HT leads do not touch each other as that will cause miss fires as the current jumps across the leads and fires the wrong plug. There are spacer clamps available to keep the wires apart. The problem is most evident on el cheapo plug leads as there is less insulating properties as to the dearer ones.
