The coil is under the rotor take it off then there is probably some kind of cover but it is usually just to screws one on the coil and one for the wire conection

Had an 84 silverado 305 that did the same thing. Try giving it a full tune up. Plugs, wires... Mine turned out to be fouled plugs. I didn't find that out till after i tore it down & put a timing set in it. Wasn't getting good enough spark.

My jimmy wont start have 58 psi of fuel pressure good spark but the spider injection wont open to spary the fuel brand new 280 bucks for it have checked grounds two broken one fixed those still no start...


check your ecm-ign fuse.if it is ok check to see if you have power to your spider injector.if you have power, you either have a bad computer or a bad connection between the computer and the inj.do you have spark??.if you have no spark check your ign module or bad connection at the ign module.i have seen that before.

Spark plug order to distributor


For a 1985 Chevy S10 with a 2.8L engine the firing order is: 1-2-3-4-5-6 The Distributor rotation is clockwise.Take off the cap and bump engine till the rotor points to the no. 1 plug. this is the no.1 contact on the cap. follow rotation around the cap in order. {ie. 2,3,4 ect.} hope this helps.

You changed the computer because it wouldn't start? Or you changed the computer and now it won't start? Have you checked for spark?

Trouble shooting on chevy s-10 2.8 liter v6 pick up truck


sounds like the ground strap to me, it wouldn't be that the wires are in the wrong order that would still give you spark just to the wrong cylinder and believe me you'd know immediatly in that case.

No spark means no contact to the coil plain and simple..

68 Chevy Celebrity dies whenever it feels like it


No not the magnet, but the coil of wire that it inductes into when it passes, this tells the ignition module to fire the coil. Yes these fail all the time, they are usually ok until they get hot then then go "open"
