Please do the following:
- Check resistance of the high tension cords ( DMM selector range on 10 K or 100 K Ohms, resistance reading = 10 - 25 K Ohms)
- Check rotor for damage, cracked or broken.
- Check the distributor cap for cracks or corroded terminals.
- Check the ignition module inside the distributor assembly.
- If the problem persists, replace the distributor assembly with a good known one.

I accidently took the distributor out on a 1992 4 cylinder izzuzu pickup, while doing some mechanic work. How do I put it back on without having to time the whole motor again?


The best way is to turn engine over to #1 cylinder, turn by damper pulley. Remove #1 spark plug first and put a straw or similar device in plug hole on top of piston so you can tell when its at tdc. Just before #1 piston goes down thats tdc. To replace distributor put it back in with rotor button pointing to #1 wire in cap,tighten, replace the plug then start vehicle When vehicle starts adjust distributor by turning it either way. God_bless!

89 corolla wont start after replacing distributor


may be coils are damaged or there is corrosion in the distributor...the arm in the distributor might not be touching the metal for each coil and could not deliver current...

After replacing my distributor on my 89 toyota corolla it wont start


It is possible that if you replaced the distributor, you simply have the plugs in the wrong firing order. Another possibility is that you need new spark plugs, wires, plugs, distributor rotor and possibly a distributor cap. A long shot problem is the ignition coil, but since you have spark in one plug, it is unlikely.

I have installed a new distributor and lost the right crank position. I cranked the engine to TDC but after replacing the distributor back in facing the #1 cylinder I attempted to start it but didn


I am not sure about your model but for a six cylinder firing order usually is 153624. Since you said that before removing the old distributor you cranked the engine to TDC and on fitting the new distributor you should put the rotor in position of cylinder 1 and to be fitted on the correct advance position.But you said that you don't have any spark you mean from the distributor to the spark plugs? If so is not your timing marks but something is wrong wit the connector to distributor or the coil or distributor itself. Carry furthe checks about if you can or ask an expert to do so.

Spark plugs and wires


It sounds like the spark plug wires are not plugged into the correct place on the distrubutor. take the distributor cap off and crank the engine over. Make a note of which direction the rotor spins. (Clockwise, or Counterclockwise) then find the firing order for that engine. Sometimes the firing order is on the intake manifold. (if you tell me which engine it has, the 4 cylinder 2.0, or the 6 cylinder 2.5; I could post you the firing order). Now on the distributor cap there is one wire post that has the #1 on it, that would be where you put the spark plug wire from cylinder 1. Following the rotation of the distributor rotor, you would put the spark plug wire for the next cylinder in the firing order after the #1 wire, and so on.

Chevy 95 g20 van 8 cylinder wiring order spark plugs


1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 The #1 spark plug is the front spark plug on the drivers side and the cylinder location in order from front to back on the drivers side is 1-3-5-7 and on the passenger side it is 2-4-6-8. The ignition rotor rotation is clockwise.

If your Distributor cap is not numbered then replace the new wires, or transfer the old ones to the new distributor cap one wire at a time. Identify the #1 spark plug wire and start from there.

According to the obd code i am getting a misfire in the number one cyln and it kind of sputters what is causing it


1. Bad or fouled Spark Plug at #1 Cylinder.
2. Bad or misfiring Wire going from the #1 on the Distributor/Electronic Ignition Coil to the #1 Cylinder.
3. Misfiring at the #1 on the Distributor/Electronic Iginition Coil.

a. Unplug the #1 Wire at the #1 on the Distributor/Electronic Ignition Coil.
b. Using an Auto electrical testing: Probe, wire and ground clip electrical, stick the Probe into the opening at the #1 Distributor/Electronic Ignition Coil. Use the grounding clip - clipped to a portion on the engine.
c. Start the Vehicle and check for rhythmic spark.
d. If there is NOT rhythmic spark, the Distributor/Electronic Ignition Coil needs to be replaced.
e. Turn off the engine.
f. If there is rhythmic spark: Reconnect the #1 Wire at #1 on the Distrubutor/Electronic Igntion Coil.
g. Disconnect the #1 Wire from the #1 Spark Plug.
h. Again using an Auto electrical testing: Probe, wire and ground clip. Insert the Probe into the end of the #1 Wire and clip the ground clip onto the engine.
i. Start the engine again.
j. Again Check for rhythmic spark.
k. If there is NOT rhythmic spark the #1 Wire needs to be replaced. (Replace all Wires as a Set).
l. If there is rhythmic spark then the #1 Wire is fine.
m. Turn off the engine,
n. Remove and Inspect the #1 Spark Plug. Clean if necessary and Regap.
o. Reinstall the Spark Plug and reconnect the #1 Wire.
p. Restart the engine.
q, If the code reappears:
r. Replace all the Spark Plugs.
Let me know if this helped or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.Com.

Ford engine doesn't start after self tune up


Ok here is the meaning of firing order The numbers 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8 represent the order of wish cylinder the distributor send a spark as it rotates Starting whit cylinder number 1 The distributor will have to rotor on the number 1 cylinder spark plug and the piston on the number 1 cylinder will be at the top So the fuel and air will be compressed and ignited by the spark plug. The next one will be the cylinder number 5 to do the same as the crankshaft and distributor rotate Next will be number 4 then 2 then 6 ? 7 ? 8. You get the idea "10 Degrees" The degrees represent of spark advance You may think gas explode instantly but it actually take a little time So for the explosion has maximum power when the piston reaches the top of the cylinder the distributor send the spark a little ahead of time 10 degrees of revolution is the recommended by the manufacture but that can be adjust buy losing up the distributor clap bolt and manually turn it. In order to adjust that you need a timing gun Than will flash light on the crankshaft pulley (harmonic balancer) and you will see a notch and a series of numbers than represents the timing advance Note If you have not turn the distributor by loosing to button clap bolt I recommend to live it alone and go to you local part store and get the repair manual find the firing order to see wish wire go to wish cylinder Rotate the crack shaft pulley on till the notch is on 0 and see if the distributor rotor is tours cylinder number one. Cars than don?t used distributor do that automatically and constantly adjust the ignition timing by the computer.
