Why my 94 Astro van will not fire

this generation of gm vehicles is easy to troubleshoot. the engine needs 3 things to run: compression, fuel, and spark. since you mention fire, i assume you have no spark.

disconnect any random spark plug wire and connect the end to a hei spark tester. crank engine and observe for spark. if you have no spark, disconnect the center terminal of the distributor cap and use the hei tester in the same manner. spark means cap and rotor bad or bad plug wireset. no spark means make more checks.

check for battery voltage and good ground on distributor. check for open or shorted ignition module or ignition coil windings. if power and ground is present and ignition coil tests ok, check for ignition pulses at coil primary. if you have no ignition pulses feeding the coil, change the distributor.

with that generation of vehicle, the ignition system will operate without help from the computer. don't even troubleshoot the guts of the distributor, if you change the cap, rotor, and anything else, it will be the same price as a remanufactured distributor, and might not fix the problem. if you troubleshoot a low volrage related issue (no pulses, shorted or open circuit, unstable timing, etc), change the whole thing.

I have spark at the cap but not to the sparks, already change rotr

Ok, heres how the spark works, coil, to cap,, along the rotor to the connection pins of the cap, to the spark plug wires,, and onto the plugs, inside the cap, make sure that the little center piece is hitting the center or the rotor, which goes out to the tip of the rotor,, that sends spark to the pins inside the cap,, now if your cap has any corrosion or tiny cracks,, that spark will go all over the place and not travel down its intended path, so clean off those contact pins in the cap, or replace it, if you have no spark to any of the plugs,, change the cap,, if its just to one or 2 , check the plug wires and the plugs themselves

94 royal begis to cut out, chugs at about 55

Replace the spark plugs and wires along with a distributor cap and rotor. Be careful to leave the old wires and plug wires connected to dist.cap, just remove dist. cap from the distributor and lay aside with plug wires on it then install rotor then new cap and proceed to replace each wire for cap and spark plug one at a time so you don't mix up the spark plug wire firing order. Cap laying to the side is used for reference purpose.

1994 1.8 CC lancer has no spark Primary and secondary coils checked out ok Transistor checked out ok has power to coils when key is on Should spark????

So you're getting voltage to positive side of coils, but no spark at plugs? If you were to take the coil plug wire and hold it about 1/4 inch from engine ground do you get spark? (Use well insulated handles, don't touch metal) If yes, maybe plug wires, if no, does it have a control module? I'm not familiar with Mitsubishi, I've worked mostly on American cars.

Changing plugs/wires made engine worse.

you shouldnt have to gap the plugs buy the pre-gapped bosch plugs i use them in all my z's If it sounds like your going 90mph but only going 30, check the catalic converter....If its not that( if its glowing red after driving for 20mins, or when you smack it with a hammer and it sounds like a rock its bad) It could be a timming issue or a distributer/ rotor/cap issue....Is it manual or auto.Is the check eng light on?
