SOURCE: engine died & wont start no spark ignition coil tested good

try your ignition module in the distributor much more likely. just install rebuilt distributor if that is the problem , if you just replace module the main distributor assem will **** out shortly after.
Make sure you check for broken timing belt also it is one of those two!

First of all, never... and i mean NEVER, use starting fluid on a gas engine. You will blow intake gaskets, possibly head gaskets, and even warp the valves, and worse yet, blow your head off. Starting fluid is meant for diesel engines, and nothing else.
The first thing you have to do is listen when you first turn on the key, to hear if the fuel pump is running in the gas tank. If you can't hear it, check fuses and wiring. Make sure there is power to the pump by using a test light. If there is power, and it doesn't work, replace the pump.
Check for spark using a timing light. If there is no spark, check the coil, fuses, distributor, wiring, etc. Aim your timing light at the crank mark, if you have spark, and make sure the mark is staying in one place. If it is jumping around, your timing chain has likely jumped, and will need to be replaced.
If there is an engine light on, you are best off to borrow a scanner if you don't have one, and see what it says. Hit and miss can end up costing much more than the price of a scanner. Good luck.

1991 F150 Will not crank.


Do real fuel pressure test using test gauge. You changed ignition module but not coil? Are you getting nice fat blue spark? When spraying starter fluid into intake it only tries to start which makes me think you have ignition problem.

If spraying Starting fluid into the Intake does not start it, then you need to check your Spark, No spark, No Start....

Turns over but won't fire


If a starter is able to crank the engine but it won't start you usually have either an electrical or fuel problem. It's also remotely possibly that it's compression.If an engine has proper fuel, spark and compression, it will start when you crank it. So your challange is to find out which part isn't working right. Start with fuel. Spray a little starting fluid into the air intake while someone tries to start the engine. If it starts briefly when you're spraying starting fluid, you probably have a fuel delivery problem. That could be injectors, fuel pump, fuel filter, relay, fuse... who knows what until you check into it.If it doesn't start with starting fluid, check the spark. Pull a plug wire and attach it to a spare sparkplug and set the plug on a solid metal part of the engine. Have a helper crank the engine while you watch the plug. If you have a good spark, it might just be out of timing.In any case, you'll need to start isolating the problem. Find out which part isn't working then you'll know what to replace/repair.

My s10 truck is gettin fire, gas and air.. will turn over but will not crank.. what could be the problem?


Just because it get fuel,but does the fuel injector pulse? Add fuel in the throttle body if it wants to start your problem and solution will resie in bringing the fuel injector to working level

Not getting any spark or fuel pressure


If there is no fuel pressure then its not getting fuel.If its not getting fuel, then getting spark is rare/.-------- So the problem relates to faulty fuel pump and clogged fuel filter.------- It is possible that the fuel filter is clogged. If you're real careful you can inject a small amount of fuel in the air intake and see if the engine fires. (you can also spray starter fluid in the air-intake) If it does, you know you have a fuel issue; if it does not it could be an ignition issue. The air-intake is the best place to inject the fuel. ---------- Get the voltage checked at spark plugs and also check the coils.The spark plugs gets power to spark from coil pack.If the coils are faulty, the spark plugs will not spark.If coil is checked ok, then problem is spark plugs itself, causing the problem.--------- It has to be replaced.This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Engine turns over but does not seem to fire. Checked plug and light white spark seen! timing all correct. Can coil be outputing too low?


Spray starting fluid into the intake. If it starts on the fluid then you have a fuel issue. If it doesn't start on the fluid then you have a spark or timing issue. Report back for more testing instructions.
