Last one of these i did with this problem i found that it was ihe IGN Module inside the distributer.. When i saw the price of this module.. I looked for a used distributer.. Bought one on Ebay for $40. complete with cap and roter and modules.. Fixed the problem. Could be a coil or electricty not comning from Ign switch.. You will have to check all these things before spending the big money.. I think that Orilly Auto parts can check the module if you bring it to them.

If the points are firing that is the low voltage side that tells the coil when to release its stored energy. if no spark to plugs that is secondary high voltage side and the coil is not storing sufficient energy the spark the plugs

I mixed the distributor cables up,so i need the order to correctly connect


If the wires are still in the distributer, AND, if you have a stock intake manifold, the firing order is on the manifold. If it's a V-8, the number 1, 3, 5, & 7 plugs are on the drivers side of the engine. The number 2, 4, 6, & 8 plugs are on the passenger side. The number 1 plug wire can be located by looking at the distributer from the front of the engine and visually looking between the distributer and the number 1 plug. Visualize the distributer as a clock. The number one position should be located between 4 and 5 o'clock and should have the longest wire of those on that side of the distributer.

If the wires have been pulled from the distributer, then, then, remove the rotor cap, turn the engine over slowly until the rotor is pointing to the number 1 plug. Using the firing order on the intake manifold, starting with number 1, replace the wires going clockwise around the distributer.

Turns but wont start at times, 12valve with FI


Distributers are very common for failing in these cars, when the car wont start, pull a spark plug out leave the wire connected and place the threaded portion of the spark plug on some metal on the engine. Get a friend to turn the key, look for spark between the gap on the spark plug, if no spark, signs point to bad distributer

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.

1997 Jimmy cranks but wont start can hear fuel pump run


There's 2 things that an engine needs to start. One is ...it has to have spark to the spark plugs to detonate the fuel fumes inside the cylinders. Check for spark by removing a spark plug the placing the spark plug next to a ground. Use heavy gloves or rubber gloves so you won't get a shock if it does have spark. Have somebody crank the engine. it should fire a blue spark at the spark plug tip. if it does not. Your problem is you don't have a spark. You have to look at several things that might be causing the lack of spark. It could be the coil or coils, the distributer system , or the ignition system such as your switch.

The other thing it needs is fuel. the fuel system has to be workng right to start your car. Check that the fuel pump is working and that the fuel is being distributed properly.

With the brief explanation you gave that's all I can sy for now.

Car will not start


All the things you replaced were a great place to start. I would suspect the ignition coil. approx. 119.00 for OEM a lot less at the parts store.

Car will not start. I think the Theft Deterrent System has the engine disabled.


What makes you think it's the security system.
1. Check if you are getting a spark, by using a spare spark plug in one of the plug leads, laid on the side of the engine?
2. If not: a. check distributer cap and rptor arm are OK.
Let me know the answers
