A pickup coil is a reluctor it consists of a magnetized ring near a magnetized pole piece the magnets oppose each other's magnetic field (relucting) signaling the coil pack ignition transistor to fire.
so check with a meter to see if you have voltage to the ignition module as it usually fails before the coil packs or the reluctor assembly

The pickup coil is magnetic so take a small screwdriver and place it on one of the points of the pole peice and see if it has a pull on it first. It may be that item that went bad from excessive heat. That takes away the magnetivity in the long run most of the time

I have a 1990 Dodge Ram 150 with the 318 engine that the coil isnt sending fire to the dist...But the coil is good. Could someone help?


Could be a bad coil, or a bad pickup coil inside the distributor, or worst case a bad pcm.

You said the coil is good, but didn't mention if you had tested the coil's primary and secondary circuits with an ohmmeter to see if they are within specs? And the pickup coil is like a crank position sensor: it tells the pcm crankshaft position and rpm so the computer can determine spark timing.

I got a 89 dodge d 150 v6 no fire at the coil can run a hot wire to the coil and it runs what does this regulator look like and where is it located


Try this jumper the ballast resistor on the fire wall if you have one looks like a block of white ceramic wit two or four wires. Jump them across not up and down If you check voltage on the right side 12 volt left side lower to protect coil from 12 volts. If that doesn't work your shut down relay may be bad. If not getting voltage to resister could be the starter switch on top of steering column under dash. Key switch is not ignition switch. The key switch pulls a lever up on the ignition switch if switch is not set right it will not send power to the coil. I had two break before on me. The book says to follow the wire all the way back to the battery and look for breaks

Can't get fire


you should have a crank sensor that goes into the top of the bell housing . it will either be on the pass side or drivers side I believe on your year it is on pass side. if you reach back behind the intake behind the pass side head you will feel the sensor. it is held in by 1 bolt and feel the wire harness to follow and unplug it. they go bad often. and on yours you might even be able to see it if you lean over the back of the motor from pass side. it is the only sensor that goes into the top of bell housing where trans and engine go together . sometimes you have to move a few things out of your way to get to it like oil press sensor ect. and have you checked the coil? the crank sensors are pretty cheap just make sure you give the part store exact year and engine.

1991 Dodge 318 no spark


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.

1989 Dodge Ram D50, no spark. coil may be miswired.


Check the resistance on the coil. the (+) (-) side should be about 10 Ohms resistance and the part that goes out of the coil should be 1-2 ohms resistance. Get yourself an ohmmeter and check it. best way to check is to figure out what wire runs from the computer to the coil and follow the wiring all the way to the coil making sure theres no rips or shorts. If there isnt, then I would splice into the two wires and run two new wires over to the coil. If it still doesnt have spark then its a faulty computer and should be replaced. Good luck
