I have a 1965 elcamino, not getting spark at plugs swapped plugs wires coil, distributor, won't start! Ideas?

Check power and ground at the coil. If there isn't any power there you will need to trace them both back to find the problem. If you have power at the coil, does the coil provide power to the distributor? If yes the either cap, points or distributor is bad. Check gap on points. Make sure point contacts are clean. Does the internals of the distributor turn when engine is turned over? All this has to work correctly for you to get spark.

I have a 97 dodge average 2.5 v-6 the car attempts to turn over but won't fire, start. I was told by midas it was a spark issue and needed a new distributor. I replaced that still no change

check for spark to make sure the distributor is working. If there is not spark than make sure the distributor is turning. Remove the cap and see if the rotor turns will a helper cranks the engine over. If it is turning than use a test light connected to ground and see if spark comes out of the ignition coil while the engine is being cranked. if there is no spark make sure there is power to the coil. if there is power you may have a defective distributor. if there is no power check fuses.

if the rotor is not turning check to make sure the timing belt is not broken.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

Engine cranks but no start, no spark. What else can I check?

is it actually rotating when the engine turns over I know sounds stupid but I\'ve seen the teeth that goes inside against the cam break off on first turn over happened to me once on a Honda, also that same car my original problem was I was getting power and everything like you but the icm on the distributor was putting the power out on the ground side and the power turned to ground not allowing the distributor to do its job and produce spark

hope this helps

I have a 1988 Acura Legend with a 2.7L. My starter turns over but my car does not turn on. There is power going into the coil. I know that for sure. I don't know if there is coming out of it. I know there...

Remove the cable which connects your coil and the distributor from the distributor side. Have someone to crank your engine while holding the cable (use insulated pliers to hold the cable by insulated part). Maintain 1/2 inch distance from the engine surface where is some bare metal without paint. If there is the spark, then replace your distributor's cap and rotor. If there is no spark, replace coil and check your cap and rotor anyway, if they look worn and black inside, then replace them anyway. Note: before removing spark plug wires from distributor cap, mark wires and distributor!

2000 Chevy Astro; power to distributor from the coil, but no power out the distributor. New rotar cap, magnetic switch and distributor and ignition control module, but still won't turn over. Help!

check if fire at the end of spark plug wire with HEI spark plug tester.It need 25000 volts to jump the tester. If ok check for fuel injectors by pouring a little fuel inside intake .

No spark

Could be your crank sensor or the distributor. Do you have a check engine light if not chang the distributor.
