1992 gmc vandora is not getting spatk i changed the spark module under cap distributer pick up the coil and the ignition switch on steering column any suggestions


Did you change the Spark Plugs too? The coil is new you said. Might want to thing about replacing all the Spark Leads to new ones, they may be dead, just replace them all, even the main one.

New spark plugs, new spark plug wires, new distibutor, new distibutor cap, new coil, new coil wire still not getting any spark why?


I know you list a new distributor, but the pick up coil (inside the distributor) is what will trigger the coil for spark. Located under the rotor, it needs to be checked at the harness for voltage (key on) and measure resistance in the PU coil itself using an ohm meter. Check the harness for breaks or damage, there really is nothing else that might cause this unless you have a complete failure in your engine computer (located next to the battery).

Where would the coil be located in the engine bay of the car. I bought a new one but cant find where it goes. thnx


find all your spark plug wires, they all lead to the coil from the plug. or... you may have individual coils over each plug but that is very very unlikely for your 1993. ps... why do you need a new coil, their are a few more likely solutions ahead of the coil pack.

NO SPARK PUT A NEW COIL ON DID NOT FIX TOOK IT TO A GSRAGE SAID IT NEEDED A CRANK SENSOR CAM SENSOR WIRES PLUGS DIST CAP AND ROTER RAN ONE DAY NOW THEY SAID A HOLE DISTRIBUTER AND A TIMEING BELT.I REALLY...


If you are sure they said, a distributer cap a roter and a distributer, there is a problem! Because on a 1998
plymouth, there is no distributer or cap or roter.
Your cam sensor along with the crank sensor-temp sensor and a few other sensors, send a signal to the
powertrain control module, that sends a signal to the
coil pack(that you said was replaced) that fires the
spark plug. I would hold off from having any further
work done there, until you can check out what they
say they have already done. Ask if you can have the
old parts they replaced so far. You will want to have
an OBDII scan test done, to see what codes come up. It should have one of the first tests they did.
If I have read your post correctly, have them write an
estimate for what they will replace next. This info. is
based on the car being a 1998 plymouth and not a
1988 I would not wan't to acuse somone of anything
based on a typo. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Spark at coil no spark at plugs


Possible! Is the rotor turning when cranked over. You may have a broken scroll pin on bottom gear of distibutor.

No spark


I assume you have already tested the (secondary ignition circuit) Locate your coil. Using a test light check for power at the small wires going to the coil, (primary circuit) Key on you should have a bright light, (battery power) I use a needle to insert into the back of the plug for this. Then check for power on the negative side of the primary coil wiring. (same plug) you should also have a bright light. Have someone crank the engine over and the light should flicker. If it doesn't flicker then you either have a broken timing chain so the distributer isn't spinning (Lift the cap and make sure the distributer is spinning.) or control problems. A spark igniter or wiring, or as a last resort ecm. If it does flicker then your coil is dead or coil wire is no good.
