Question about 1983 Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

1992 Cadillac w/no spark

The car turns over but we are not getting any spark. We have changed the plugs, wires, module under the coil, the coil, distributor cap, rotor, what could be the problem now? We still can not get spark.

Check the crank and cam sesor first, a good scan tool will tell you if these are working, make sure you are getting power to the ignition module, check these and get back to me we'll go from there,please rate my fix as i strive to be the best. ps, check the voltage with a dvom meter a test light could cause more problems

Did you change the Spark Plugs too? The coil is new you said. Might want to thing about replacing all the Spark Leads to new ones, they may be dead, just replace them all, even the main one.

Not getting fire at plugs have replaced everything except pickup coil have 12v at distributor

In the bottom of the distributor under the plate there is a coil with hair-fine wire, a broken wire there will cause the no-spark issue for sure, check it with an Ohmmeter for continuity, good luck!

I have a 1992 gmc sonoma and it starts fine when its cold and runs good but when it warms up it dies and wont stay running and sometimes wont start till it sits for 15 20 min

sounds like a bad ignition module check for spark when it dies if you do not have spark at plugs check between coil and coil wire if still no spark most likely module it is under rear of distributer cap resembles a black wafer board with two electrical plugs
