Do you have voltage to the positive post of the ignition coil with the ignition key turned to run? You do not mention that you have done any testing for system fault codes either, this is a very important test.

Check the voltage coming from the battery and check it again at the coil.I suspect you are not getting the proper voltage going through. Clean all the terminal ends to bare shiny metal and make sure all the connections are tight. If I remember correct your truck still has the HEI setup with the coil in the top of the distributor cap. If all the voltages are good, 12+ volts you should replace the coil. Hope this helps.

Y is my 97 chevy only fires on the number one cylender


if you have fire on the number one cylinder,it means that the ignition coil is working so your problem can come from spark plug wire or cap and rotor . unplug the wire from ignition coil to distributor and check for fire you are suppose to have fire because you saying having fire on cylinder one. from there change cap of distributor and rotor plus a set a spark plug wire.

I'm not getting spark from, the wires to my spark


check the distributor cap and rotor for signs of cracks and burn through, this was a common problem on these. have you check to see if the coil wire is supplying spark to the distributor cap, if so then its probably the cap and rotor.

No spark to engine 1991 ford pickup


It can be faulty or dirty spark plug itselfd.Also for reference get the fuel level checked.Is the fuel tank is empty or near to empty.
Try cleaning the spark plugs and then see if that is helpin.On some cases the black carbon layer gets collected on the spark plugs and that causes the problem,so cleaning the plugs help.But if its not helping,then spark plug has to be replaced.Spark plugs get power from ignition coil to ignite sparks.If ignitioncoils are faulty then also there will no spark.--------------

Trying to figure out what the name of a part is


That would be the ignition coil, the part that creates spark at the spark plug. If you follow the electrical path from the coil wire to the distributor cap, and from there, the spinning rotor just under the distributor cap carries the path from the coil wire at the cap's center to the spark plug wires around the dist. cap, and through the plug wire to the spark plug.
The high voltage causing the spark is created in the ignition coil by the engine computer at the precise right moment signaling an ignition module to cut 12 volts current to the ignition coil. This causes the coil to internally build up high voltage which is passed through the coil to distributor cap wire. The computer knows the precise right moment to initiate spark from engine sensors, primarily the crank position sensor and the cam position sensor.

No spark at plugs


the famous ignitor failure, but lets not condemd this device. The ignitor only generate current to the coil to collapse the magnetic flux that is built up. you may not have spark at the plugs but you need to know if you have spark at the coil, there are many times yes ignitor did solve the problem but the problem was the coil make it easy on youself open the distributor cap and have some one or you can do it. with the cap open remeber the position of the distributor rotor and crank the car,not to long is the rotor in the exact same position cause if it is it a timing belt.or that the rotor which is mounted in a fixed position may have spun allowing the shaft of the rotor to not move. disributor rotor do fail when the inner hold doent grip the shaft, and the cap yes it does fail its a carbon filled material and the do short out and so does the coil it short out internally then there is the ignition switch and yes it fails to provide power to the coil positive side.. Take this as a solution replace the ignitor, with a cap and rotor, and the coil it easier that way

1999 chevy blazer wont start turning over but not firing replace distributor cap and rotor any througts on it


first check for spark disconnect any plug wire from the spark plug remove the spark plug from the engine reattach the plug wire and set it on the fender well DO NOT TOUCH THE PLUG OR WIRE AND CRANK THE ENGINE AND SEE IF THERE IS A SPARK BETWEEN THE ELECTRODE AND ARM. if there is no spark you have an ignition problem check for 12v at distributor.
if you have spark then check fuel pressure the fuel pump could be bad.

I have a 1983 Chevy S-10 and have recently replaced the coil and the spark module. I still have no spark. I do however have power to my coil but not to my distributer what do i do?


Is your coil separate from the distributor or in the top of the cap? Check the wires on the pickup coil inside the distributor and make sure they are intact.
