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.

SOURCE: 94 toyota camery no spark

I had the same problem recently but replacing the ignition Coil under the distributor (inside) solved the problem. Also replaced the distributor Cap and rotor at the same time.

SOURCE: Ignition coil??

Its the distributor that needs to be replaced. Its probably the coil alone that bad but the coil is built into the distributor, so you will have to replace as one unit. Make sure when replacing the distributor you set the car in base timing thats the rotor head tointed to cylinder #1 and number on piston on TDC(topdead center)before you remove distributor shaft then repalce in the same position and your problem should be solved. Good Luck

Check the ignition relay and all the main relays on the battery.

SOURCE: car wont start, not getting spark

crankshaft sensor, or computer on toyotas then it was usually the distributor or the computer, but the crankshaft sensor might be bad too thats what helps to get you spark.

Most likely just jarred the coil wire out. Check that the coil wire is all the way into the coil.

How do I test the igniter on 1996 corolla 4afe motor


Start the car and lift up the coil inserts from the spark plugs one by one. By doing so if the engine does not stall that cylinder has a problem. The problem may be due to the defective igniter, fuel injector, high tension cord, weak cylinder compression or a distributor assembly. Some models have distributor less ignition system.
To check the igniter check the 12V at the input lead which is entering the igniter amplifier in the distributor and the output voltage at the spark plug wire. If it is so the igniter is ok. If it is not starting at all or is giving intermittent problem, replace the distributor assembly.

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...

Car will crank there is no spark have replaced coil and condenser


Test the ignition system output, ignition systems can vary in configuration but operate on the same principal. Ignition systems can consist of a coil, pick up coil, crank angle sensor, cam angle sensor, spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, ignition rotor and a distributor and any variations of these components. An ignition coil is a voltage stepper coil that transforms a low voltage (12 volts) signal into tens of thousands of volts needed to jump the gap of the spark plug.

This coil is activated by an ignition module triggered by using the camshaft/crankshaft angle sensor; timing is adjusted by the PCM (computer).This primary electrical signal is generated by the PCM which calculates spark timing by using a variety of sensors including coolant temperature, mass air flow, and oxygen sensors. Go to 2carpros.com for a video on how to check this using a 12v light tool. On the engine repair section search, type, "engine cranks but will not start." If my answer helpe you, please leve good feedback. thanks

Car is not getting spark


check your fuses first
check your ignition coil for burn or crack
if not then replace the whole distributor, because the distributor has a life time warranty.
if you buy the igniter and the coil separate it will end up cost you more and you don't have good warranty
