No engine light? could be your crank sensor, could be power to your distributor, could be various things.

1985 Ford ranger died and will not start....getting gas..have fire to the distrubutor, will turn over but not start.

You have fire to the Distributor, but do you have fire at the plugs? The 4 cylinders had an external timing belt behind a shroud. Look to see if you broke a timing belt. Or you could have a bad stator or module in the Distributor.

I am having problems with my 1994 gallant, just changed the distributor and the timing belt now only my number 1 plug is firing and it tries to turn over but wont cuz the other plugs are not firing....what...

ok....when you talk about firing, do you mean that only the number 1 cylinder is receiving a spark from the distributor, as with this model, the "timing of the spark and operation of the spark is purely in the distributor, so unless you are 100 % sure that the distributor you replaced is good....i would be loooking at possible engine ecu......(there is no crankshaft position sensors or cam sensors in this model)

However, if you have only found that "firing" means the cylinder 1 is the only one attempting to fire, such as good spark, at the right time, with fuel and good compression, i would be doing a compression check, and double check the timing of the distributor.......

1988 Chevy S10 Durango Pickup, Won't start will fire

sounds like ignition module inside of distributor cap under distributor rotor button.these do go bad and can easily be replaced.strong suspicion from your details that this is the culprit.

Car turns over but don't fire

Well if it doesn't fire, it doesn't always mean that the timing belt is the problem. There can also be a problem with ur distributor. Some cars the camshaft do drive the distributor, and the camshaft is being driven by the crankshaft via the timing belt. If the drive of the distributor is dependent on the camshaft, u should open the distributor cap to c if rotation is occuring in order to verify that it is the timing belt. If ther is rotation, chekc ur distributor

1992 isuzu pickup timing

Sounds 180 degrees out. Move flywheel to top dead center. Remove timing belt and turn flywheel pulley ONE complete turn to top dead center. Then put timing belt back on with marks lined up.

No fire

I have the same vehicle and had the same problem. It could be one of three things. Yes your timing could be off. 2nd- Your crank positioning sensor could be bad or disconnected.3rd your distributor went out and needs to be replaced. Most likely it is your timing off or your distributor went out in which case the distributor is an easy fix to do yourself but expensive for the part. Did it run before tightning the belt.
