There is no test for module in distributor, but they often cause this kind of problem. Also while in there, check the pickup coil wires to make sure they are intact.

Hi. A single click from under the hood on an attempted start could mean a bad starter relay. You may want to test the battery also if there is a charge. Might be the car is not charging the battery.

I have a ford falcon 2002 xr6 ute with vct tickford motorist just stoped while driving gave a miss fire I have replaced crank sensor module coil fuel pump fuel filter still wont run running very ruf


On my falcon the same thing happened changed dizzy, coil even got new spark plugs what it turned out to be was auxiliary shaft that turns the dizzy or the dizzy module if you got coil packs. You can't see down the dizzy hole because its under the inlet manifold so take photo with your phone and you might see little bits of metal The auxiliary shaft teeth on the dizzy end where worn out and folding over so it can't give the proper spark at right time so went to wreckers 20 bucks for another. ford says it can't happen but I know quite a few engines with same problem

Where is the ignition coil located in 1992 toyota paseo?


first off, no engine sized stated not even cylinder counts.
makes this kinda hard if we dont know the engine,huh?\
NO COUNTRY either stated.... lots of variances there.

hard for you too, it seems. 1.3L or 1.5L I4?
USA used mostly , so ill pretend it's that..... here....
1.5 L 5E-FE I4 why not test for spark and if the ECU sees spark missing it CUTS FUEL, (for safety reasons) so spark is first if engine is good, see?
so you never checked for spark on an engine before.?
the where is it question, im gobsmacked, its at the other end of the wire from each spark plug, for sure, Mr. Tesla's induction coil is there.
some hide, some inside dizzy and today you get 4 or 6 on Toys.
all this is convered in the FSM (get one) or at the the virtual FSM
called,,,,,,,,,,alldata.com (google finds it 1st hit)
so ill log in for you.
looks like engine has a DISTRUTOR>
ok if true.
then the COIL is in 1 of 2 places, connected to the center
of the distributor cap, 5 terminal or inside the dizzy
keep in mind that the early 90s was a transition era. Spark !
some had dizzy others are DIS.
DIS is 4 cop coils. one coil on top of the spark plug
here is vast photos on line, of many 5E-FE engines.

in JAPAN the engine had a DIZZY
in USA it had COPS
what you have not sure.

i read in the wiki that the 5E went to cops, in 1995 (USA)
so it has a dizzy. in the 5E.
here is a new coil. for the dizzy
the dizzy has only 4 terminals on top , that fact means it makes the
high voltage by all its self and this hidden coil
see photo

http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/moreinfo.php?pk=47723&cc=1276938

now not guessing,?
we do what.? we do tests. i bet your coil is fine.
here is a test flow>
i find spark dead on all 4 spark plugs.
i then ask the ECU to tell me why its dead, 99% of times i can
so what do i do? i connect the diagnostic jumper (OBD1 system)
i insert my paper clip jumper
then crank the engine for 5 seconds, release the key (not off)
and behold , i get CEL flash codes,
saying,,,,, bad CMP, BAD CKP
all cars up to 1996 (most) work like that, they have flash codes.

now my useless guesses.....
my guess. is ckp sensor wires fell off
the ground to the DIZZY snapped.>
?
i take a spare good spark plug , gapped to spec.
i ground the shell off the spark plug to the engine metal.
i connect the spark wire.
i then crank and see.????
see video of spark

http://www.fixkick.com/videos/FLV-all/showtime.html#sparktest

the coil can be tested by making a spark test wire, (old spark wire)
and an aligator clip, we ground the spark plug.
dizzy cap removed.
then connect the clip to the coil spring clip seen in the rock auto link above. and test coil spark,.
if all 4 spark plugs are dead and the coil is good.
99% of time its caused by
1: cam timing way off. slipped belt or chain snap
2: someone spun the dizzy willy nilly in its base.

Those are the ropes. i use.

Engine diagram showing location of ignition coils


S10 , 98
all books show this, even chiltons and haynes
or online
or alldata dot com
or Chev. real FSM
all.
and more than one engine, (typical for all cars)
4.3L LF6 or L35?

if you dont know,? the look in book for clues.
if no books? then open the glove box, see GM RPO tag
see that , find the Engine code. now you know.
GM RPO codes are easy to find using Google.ALL GM products.

now the other way
you open hood
you see the spark plugs, see them , they are attached to coils
or a dizzy. just look. ?
dizzy has cap and 6 wires. COPS has 3 or 6 COPs
dizzy or COPS x6 or 3 if wasted spark cops.
now you know the 3 systems (a general answer)
im must guess, as i dont know what engine you have.

1992 geo storm replaced distributer have fire out of coil wire but no fire spark plug wire module in distributer checks out


storm is an ISUZU
and had 3engines,which one? below is off wiki on storm.
1.6 L SOHC 4XE1 I4
1.6 L DOHC 4XE1 I4
1.8 L DOHC 4XF1 I4


coil makes 50,000 volts (even 1kv makes fire, but is too weak spark
spark plugs dead , right? all 4 right?
ever do a 60k mile tune up ? if not why not, it gets new spark parts then..
also, if the cam timing is off. the dizzy sparks between towers
make the distributor useless, it cant distribute spark.
so the first tests are .
static ignition timing. (yes, a tool, called a timing light for $20)
if timing is good the the wires HV are bad.
if timing is bad, bingo..... this is the first test on any motor.
if the timing belt or chain on any SOHC or DOHC engine slips
the dizzy will be way to h3ll off.
learn to use a timing light, and works 100% cranking.

look at that distributor cap (replace it)
see the coil wire , center, that is at 50kv spark.
and see that rotor, if the spark is good at the cap pins 1 to 4
then the dizzy is timed.
if the spark dont reach the spark plugs that means
the wire are bad or the spark plugs are shorted, or both.
its that simple. using a real spark testing tools tells you the KV.
kv = kilovolts. the best tools $5 bucks have and adjustable gap
this car is not 100kv, like newer cars and must be set (tool) to 50kv or tad less to show full powerful spark.

take care not to get shocked, keep hands off the parts
as friend cranks (or remote start button tool)

Suzuki wagon r+gl check engine light keeps flashing and wont start after battery change


the engine (there are more than one engine)
has a distributor.
"have spark at coil down to dizzy but no spark at plugs"
this can mean only 2 things.
1: spark wires are dead. all 4, kinda hard to believe huh?
2: the dizzy is way off time. so time the dizzy and now spark
lands on each wire term.
if not a dizzy engine, post exact version of engine and country.

Lost fire from distribitor


96 1.6l ( there are 3 fuses. FI, COIL and dome) fix those first.

the coil is inside, did you check the output of the coil
for spark cap off dizzy? is that no spark.?
is the tachometer dead cranking.? if yes no tacho, then there
is no coil drive. from ECU.
the Dizzy is 100% controlled by the ECU.
the ECU has an OBD2 scan port above the right knee,
plug in any scan tool ($50 hand held)
crank motor over , see if RPM shows up, if not then CMP is dead.
read the scan tools DTC codes, is the ECU complaining of bad sensors. ( this is #2 after fuses) do not work on cars with no scan tool, this is a waste of time, and money.
no start or better no spark. if really true.
sometimes mech think there is no spark but the cam belt slipped
or the cam is not even spinning, dizzy rotor dead, dont turn.
or the coil really does have spark and dizzy timing is way off.
Dizzy clamp bolt, loose? bad spark wires, connected backwards.

all here
