I have the same problem on a 1988 pickup. I even bought a reman carb to put on it. I hear that there is a cam difference between the 22r and 22re that causes low vacuum and therefore the engine will not idle and run properly. Has anyone else heard this possibility? If that is the problem there is only one cure, switch the camshaft to one from a 22r engine.

Where is the coil/ignition system and how do I check it?

Follow the plug wires from the engine to where they end. That would be your coil/ignition system. Depending on how your car is built it could be coil packs, or a distrubutor. Good luck.

I have a 22re toyota pick up with weber carburetor it takes a long time to start in the mornings battery even dies sometimes before starting what do you recomend

Check that your choke is working properly.
Start with a tune-up, new gas filter, air filter if dirty, oil and oil filter, spark plugs, distributor cap and rotor. If your spark plug wires are old, buy a new set, or test yours with an ohmmeter.
If still bad, check if your fuel pump is putting enough gas into the carburetor. Take the gas line off at carb. and check volume flow into a container. Also the carb may need adjustments-maybe the fuel level in carb. bowl is too low-would need to raise float height. Check if the needle valve and seat at the gas inlet to carb is not clogged or stopped from trash or debris.
Look down the throat of carb and watch for gas jetting out when you open the throttle to wide open-you should see gas spurt downward, if not, the carb needs some work to it.
Is your choke adjusted right? Sounds like it may not be-the choke flap should be nearly closed when starting, partially open after running, and fully open after the engine warms up.
Other problems could be weak ignition components-possibly a coil or igniter-what Toyota calls an ignition module.
Post back with what you find. Webers are great carburetors-much better than stock.

Engine will not start after replacing valve cover

carb cleaner is NOT starting fluid and will almost always kill the engine. (shut it off)

Look for any wires that may have been unplugged in the removal process.

(near intake and around distributor)

No spark from distributor

Replace the cap and center element in the cap. Also, you'll want to check the wiring from the coil to the distributor. Chase it back as: Cap and rotor, wire to the coil, timing unit which ignites the coil from the ECU control point. There could even be an issue with the wiring from the flywheel sensor which sends a signal to ignite the coil.
Being an 89, you should get a check engine light if the sensor on the crank is not receiving a signal. Anything coil-distrubutor-spark plugs should not send a specific code.
Hope this helps

After replacing plugs, wires, coil, ignition modual, and computer, I still don't have spark.

take the cap off the distributor and have someone crank if over, it rotor doesnt turn, distributor is bad.

According to the obd code i am getting a misfire in the number one cyln and it kind of sputters what is causing it

1. Bad or fouled Spark Plug at #1 Cylinder.
2. Bad or misfiring Wire going from the #1 on the Distributor/Electronic Ignition Coil to the #1 Cylinder.
3. Misfiring at the #1 on the Distributor/Electronic Iginition Coil.

a. Unplug the #1 Wire at the #1 on the Distributor/Electronic Ignition Coil.
b. Using an Auto electrical testing: Probe, wire and ground clip electrical, stick the Probe into the opening at the #1 Distributor/Electronic Ignition Coil. Use the grounding clip - clipped to a portion on the engine.
c. Start the Vehicle and check for rhythmic spark.
d. If there is NOT rhythmic spark, the Distributor/Electronic Ignition Coil needs to be replaced.
e. Turn off the engine.
f. If there is rhythmic spark: Reconnect the #1 Wire at #1 on the Distrubutor/Electronic Igntion Coil.
g. Disconnect the #1 Wire from the #1 Spark Plug.
h. Again using an Auto electrical testing: Probe, wire and ground clip. Insert the Probe into the end of the #1 Wire and clip the ground clip onto the engine.
i. Start the engine again.
j. Again Check for rhythmic spark.
k. If there is NOT rhythmic spark the #1 Wire needs to be replaced. (Replace all Wires as a Set).
l. If there is rhythmic spark then the #1 Wire is fine.
m. Turn off the engine,
n. Remove and Inspect the #1 Spark Plug. Clean if necessary and Regap.
o. Reinstall the Spark Plug and reconnect the #1 Wire.
p. Restart the engine.
q, If the code reappears:
r. Replace all the Spark Plugs.
Let me know if this helped or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.Com.

How do you replace an ignition coil on a 1996 ford escort

Depends on if it a 1.9 or a 1.8. The 1.9 is simple, follow the coil wire coming out of the distrubuter thats not going to a spark plug and remove the wire from the coil the electrical connerter that has two small wires and the bolts that hold the bracket to the cylinder head. on the work bench saparate the bracket from the coil and put it on the new coil then bolt it on the engine then plug in the wires and go. The 1.8 is the Mazda derived motor and the coil is inside the distrubuter heald on with 2 bolts and nuts and 2 bolted on wire connections. Be careful as the parts are expensive and seldom fail so the parts store may have to sell you the whole expensive distrubutor to get it going. Coils selodom fail. You did'nt ask what to do if you don't have spark. the coil is unlikly to be the cause on an engine that ran OK last time you drove it. Timing belt breaking and the cam and dist. not turning, are real common.

Need to change engines

If you have a 22r carbed then all 22r carbed engines from 1981-1995 will interchange. You may need to use sensor out of your old engine however. The 20r,22r,22re,22ret all have the same mounts and tranny bolt patterns. how ever there are lot of differences. you can swap from a 22r to a 22re but you must also swap the entire vehical wiring harness to do it right. if you have a 3.0L i would keep the same engine. some people have swap to the tacoma 3.6L but that is a expensive swap not exsactly bolt on so to say. If you have a 22re then stay with the 1986-1987 22re because the newer 22re use different computers, electronics ,sensors and more.. Same story with the 22ret. I hoped this helped.

94 ford escort no fire

Hi there!

You've done the most obvious, and we're still in the process of elimination -
You said -"no fire" so that's completely dead - not even a missfire?

The problem should be at the coil, or 12V side of things.

The coils usually fail at high voltage, - so test OK with a meter, just break down in use as the insulation is defective.
I had a car that was stripped of everything - and it ended up being a defective coil - which is what I suggested in the first place.

Make sure you are getting 12V to the coil with the ignition ON.

If possible test the coil by using the HV output directly to a spark plug (one of the old ones) - then ground the other terminal.
(make sure you have both contacts) You should get a spark when turning ignition on and off.

Any noise from the coil during testing will indicate a fault also.

Check battery condition and clean contacts as a precaution.
Don't shock yourself! - take safety precautions against this.
