Question about 1991 Dodge D150
Pickup was running and while I was standing there it died. No spark. I replaced the coil with a new one from NAPA and it ran again. I started it 2-3 times while sitting there. I went to work for 8 hours then returned after work. I tried to start it. No spark again. I replaced the coil pickup in the distibuter and still no spark. Would the coil be the problem? Maybe the computer? Is there a actual way to test the coil?
Yes,an ohmeter across the two power leads(pimary) should yeild a fairly low resistance I'm not sure on the specs but it is just a winding so maybe 10 ohms,then test the secodary winding with one lead to either power lead and one lead to the high voltage post(the coil wire connection),should read about 10k ohms,you can go to autozone.com and register and they have a repair guide that should have the test specs.
