    what engine? 2.2 or 2.5 ... but also check the left fender well for the pcm. airbox draws air through it ans it might have a single vacuum line going to it... unplug it and check for corrosion

    my bad,., I was thinking the little pickup... let me step back and rethink this... You know this was 25 years ago LOL

    I would lean towards these.... ignition pickup or reluctor or the pcm... do you have a fuel pulse at your injectors ??? you can go to orielys dot com and type in your vehicle and search ignition parts and see what I am talking about

    Its getting fuel, no spark. Tested line to pick upcoil and have power going to the PUC BUT NO power at the PUC itself...

    New pick up coil.... NO LUCK....

    then the last step if you have injector pulse and power and grounds where they need to be would be the pcm itself... have you cycled the key three times and checked for codes ??? key on/off three times leaving the key on and counting the check engine light blinking... long pause means next number 12 is start and 13 is finish I believe...

Check under the distributor cap for a hall effect switch but also check the bottom of the rotor for a reluctor ring that might of broken off

SOURCE: 1995 Ram 1500. Just died? No votage to coil, no spark?

The power supplied to the fuel pump, ignition coil, fuel injectors and parts of the power module is controlled by the logic module through the Automatic Shutdown Relay (ASD):
The ASD relay is closed (allowing power to flow through it) when the ignition is first turned on. If the signal from the ignition reference is lost while the engine is running, the logic module cuts power to the ASD, which in turn removes power from the fuel pump,ignition coil, injectors and those parts of the power module.  This causes the engine to shut down.

Failure of the automatic shutdown relay is often shown as inexplicable stalling or refusal to start. The ASD can be triggered by a broken wire or short in another place, e.g. the fuel pump.  Hope this helps, and did you try to retrieve any DTC codes?? Be glad to help friend.

You have not run a OBD2 electronic engione control fault code test, get a code reader and do that first and don't replace anymore parts until that is done and you have the fault codes and have done the proper diagnostics for each code.

1989 dodge d150. truck will run fine for about 15 minutes then dies. I changed the fuel filter and it still dies. both injectors seem to be pumping fuel. so any ideas.

If you are sure right after the engine dies you have fuel I would think it was the coil going bad see if yiou have spark right after it dies. If you have spark squirt gas into the throuttle body and see if it starts

1990 chevy k2500 5.7 tbi.. truck just died, engine turns over but no spark. replaced coil and still no spark.

Is there power to the coil?? is there spark coming out of the coil? Is coming out of dist cap? could be a distrubutor, pick up, module, rotor? we could guess all day , but it really needs to be checked out.

There may be no injector pulse if the computor does not see a RPM signal.
There will be no spark if the ignition module does not see a dist pulse from the dist pickup.......a RPM signal.
Because you do not have both ......I would suggest to check/change the dist pick up.
Follow the wires from the ignition module inside the dist to the pickup which is also inside the dist.
If it is just a bad dist pickup....keep all your old parts as good spares. the dist turning? to provide a RPM signal?
You will have to remove the dist to change the pick-up.....mark your timing locations......"rotor position" and "dist body location"before removal.
A quick test before installing the "repaired dist" .....plug it in the the truck wiring and turn on the key....DO NOT CRANK THE ENGINE OR YOU WILL LOSE YOUR DIST ROTOR CORRECT you spin the dist by hand .....the injectors should spray.

There is no power going to the dist cap. I put a new coil in but this did not fix it. The spark plugs will not fire. Everything works but the plugs will not fire. The engine just turns. Ichecked the wires...

U have a power wire that has been breached ur gonna have to check continuity to ur power wire at the coil and dist hook one lead to the fuse that supplies power and other lead to to same circuit under hood at coil repeat step with all wires on coil and dist just to be sure.

Trouble shooting on chevy s-10 2.8 liter v6 pick up truck

sounds like the ground strap to me, it wouldn't be that the wires are in the wrong order that would still give you spark just to the wrong cylinder and believe me you'd know immediatly in that case.

No spark means no contact to the coil plain and simple..
