Where is the igniter on 1991 toyota mr2

I just acquired 91 MR2 it had set for some time. The ignition coil was missing, was told it literally smoked. I installed a new ignition coil. It has a new cap and rotor. I'm not getting any spark from the coil. So engine wont start. The trunk lid leaks so I'm afraid the ecu could be bad but will take any advice I can get.

Try spraying starter fluid into the throttlebody...if it starts or fires, your fuel pump is bad. It will cost something around the $300-$400 mark to replace. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: the 1991 mr2 intermittently will not start. you

Sounds like you have a bad one-way check valve in the fuel pump. It is not serviced seperatly. A replacement fuel pump might be your answer.

1991 toyota mr2 reliability

You\'ra asking about a 22 year old vehicle. I wouldn\'t take that for free & certainly not pay for it. Get something newer. Any vehicle over 12 to 14 years old, isn\'t even worth working on, unless you have decades of experience & do all your own work.
If you know nothing about cars, you need something fairly new.

Can you tell what fault code 12 is on a toyota mr2 mk2 sw20 3s ge engine

12 is not a fault code it is the code that tells the user the computer is in read mode of computer diagnostic's. so if the only thing it flashes is 12 then you have no fault codes stored.
