The coil is inside the distributor under the cap.

If I remember correctly, everything is inside the distributor. I believe you will have to replace the distributor to correct your problem.

1998 nissan pickup, wont start after it rains.


Wow, that's almost as cool as the lady who's brakelights came on in the middle of the night whenever it got cold. It seems like you almost have to have a questionable connection between the battery and starter and the extra water is finishing the job. See if your engine compartment is leaking and, if it is, follow the water. Check the battery ground at the engine block.

1998 Nissan XE King Cab - worth a new engine?


Just a guess, but I would say this truck ran low on oil at one time. The result is the crank bearings took a beating. You may get away with just replacing the bearings and a rear seal. This engine is amost 'bullet-proof''! Frankster016

Ignition coil??


Its the distributor that needs to be replaced. Its probably the coil alone that bad but the coil is built into the distributor, so you will have to replace as one unit. Make sure when replacing the distributor you set the car in base timing thats the rotor head tointed to cylinder #1 and number on piston on TDC(topdead center)before you remove distributor shaft then repalce in the same position and your problem should be solved. Good Luck
