I had the same problem recently but replacing the ignition Coil under the distributor (inside) solved the problem. Also replaced the distributor Cap and rotor at the same time.

At the cost of the igniter i recommend checking your pickup coil.( The 2 wire sensor in side of your distributor. The The igniter will not allow the coil to fire with out reference form the pickup coil. Coil has primary and secondary resistances. when the primary coil powers up and then pulses off, this cause a high voltage due to magnetic degeneration. Check the coils primary and secondary resitances along with the air gap in the pickup coil, and also check the resitances on the pickup coil. If i am right your igniter will be okay.Get a good manual for you truck, It will save you money down the road.
Toyota does not have at test proseger for the ingiter.

Also check the wires in between the pickup coil and the igniter.
I hope this helped.

I have a 1985 toyota pu while driving it just quit. it has no spark, changed the rotor, spark plugs, it is getting fuel any help out there


The pickup coil should probably be changed too since the vehicle is as old as it is, and it is likely original.

Be sure to clean the mounting area for the igniter and use adequate heat transfer/dielectric grease on the metal mounting plate for optimum heat transfer.

Got a 85 toyota pickup..will not start..replaced coil, brain box, and all fuses...still no fire from the coil?

Not sue what you mean by brain box. You may need to replace the ICM the Ignition Control Module that sits right below the coil. Mine cost almost $300 locally, but found them online for less then $100. When mine went out in my 1985 Toyota pickup I was doing about 45 MPH and it was just like someone turn the key off., dead, no spark nothing. I ran the troublesooting steps in my repair manual and found it was dead.

We have no spark. can't tell if it is the coil or the igniter

The Igniters tend to fail more often than the coil because they use some electronic components that eventually fail due to the hot conditions that they operate under. I would replace the igniter first

1985 toyota 1 ton pickup, covered ground next to coil?

If it were a ground, it wouldn't have been covered in a plastic box. The post that held it was insulated from the cab. Do not try to ground it again, you may burn your truck to the ground.

Check and see if there is spark from the coil, if not, the coil is bad.

I had this problem once. My engine turned over but i had no spark.
Every thing electrical was fine.
Make sure your distributor turns when you are cranking the engine over.
Check your pickup sensor in your distrubutor with an ohm meter.
the resistance is 180-240 ohms.
