I'm thinking Cam sensor or Crankshaft position sensor failure. The sensor triggers the ignition module on distributorless engines. But first replace the TFI module, a known problem on many Fords except the Ranger. Here is more info on it:

SOURCE: 89 ford probe, 2.2 turbo, no spark.

Check out your "fuel cut-off switch" located by the windshield washer tank behind the driver's side wheel-well panel in the trunk. It's a small box with a push-button at the top. If the button is "soft" when you push it, that's probably your problem. Replace the unit by removing the washer fluid tank first. The box simply plugs in. Probably about $ 100. I replaced three in my Probe. They rot out, and the car simple dies.

Wont start no spark


If your engine cranks normally but will not start because it has no spark, or it stalls and won't restart because it has no spark, the problem may be due to any of the following:

A bad pickup inside the distributor (on engines that have a distributor), a stripped distributor drive gear (common problem with plastic distributor drive gears), broken, loose or corroded wires from the pickup to the ignition module orPCM.

A bad crankshaft position (CKP) sensor (on engines that do not have a distributor), or broken, loose or corroded wires from the sensor to the PCM.

A bad ignition module (on engines that have a distributor or use an ignition module separate from the PCM)

A bad ignition coil (on engines that have a distributor and a single coil)

A bad rotor or distributor cap (cracks or carbon tracks that are allowing the spark to short to ground)

Faulty ignition switch.

Will turn over without fire, replaced brain and the ignition coil


bet on the module,if it's tfi it's on the side of the dist.85 could be either way,may be the older fender mounted module.
If it's dist. mounted Ford recomends replacing the pick up coil also. There is a wire with a plug on the tfi's ,you remove the "cap" to set the timing,just 2 wires with a gray cap on the end.Maybe that's the wire you mentioned.

Ford focus 2002, 2 litres, what is the function of the pick up coil


The pick up coil is located at the base of the distributor and plugs into the ignition module. The pick up coil's purpose is to sense or "pick up" the pulses of the distributor and tell the ignition module when to fire the spark plugs. The most critical part of the replacement of the pick up coil is to make certain you properly mark the orientation of the distributor to the engine block and the rotor to the distributor base. When you successfully make these markings, you will not need to check your timing when this job is finished. Keeping this in mind, here we go: You will need to purchase a replacement pickup coil and a rubber o-ring gasket that will replace the o-ring located where the distributor shaft enters the engine before you start this project.

Trouble code P0320 ignition/dist. engine speed input circuit


P0320 - Ignition / distributor engine speed circuit malfunction

The ignition engine speed sensor input signal to Powertrain Control Module (PCM) or Electronic Control Module (ECM) is continuously monitored. The test fails when the signal indicates that 2 successive erratic profile ignition pickup (PIP) pulses occurred.

Symptoms:
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Lack/Loss of Power
- The engine may be harder to start
- The engine may stumble or stall

When is the code detected?
The P0320 code is triggered when 2 successive erratic PIP pulses are detected.

Possible Causes:
- Loose wires/connectors
- Faulty Crank Position Sensors
- Arcing secondary ignition components (coil, wires and plugs)
- Low battery charge
- Powertrain Control Module

Possible Solutions:
- Resecure loose wire or connectors
- If battery charge is low, recharge or replaced battery
- Replaced crank position sensor
- Replaced starter motor


Test it and tell us news.

89 FORD F-150 ENGINE IS TURNING OVER GETTING GAS REPLACED THE COIL STILL WANT START WHERE IS THE MODULE LOCATED HOPE ITS NOT THE TIMING ALMOST FORGOT 300 INLINE 6 CYL EFI


The TFI module is on the side of the distributor but I would recommend replacing the module and stator witch is inside the distributor..... Have you checked to see if you have voltage to the coil?

I have a 89 ford e250 5.0 automatic. it has power going to the coil but no spark. it did this the other day and i unplugged it tapped on it then it worked. the ditributer is turning.


the most common failure on this system is the TFI ignition module and the distributor pickup, also the coils are suspect if the outside of the coil is dark or burned looking or the tower under the coil lead is white with a chalky residue, the ign modules failed so much there was a class action law suit on them.I am a 25 year veteran ford dealer tech so have done 100's of these no spark repairs.

89 f150 to fireing


Check and see if u have spark to the plugs, if you don't replace the TFI ignition module on the distributor and the pickup inside the distributor, the dist must be removed to do this coil pickup replacement.
Comment posted on Mar 04, 2009 also check the fuel pressure if the spark is ok, the ignition is the ,most common issue. Comment posted on Mar 04, 2009 also check the fuel pressure if the spark is ok, the ignition is the ,most common issue.

89 f150 wont fire


i suspect a fuel pump malfunction. i would check there first. make sure the fuel **** fuse is good and well. check the lines for blockages. after you run the fuel pump/fuse/line test, go to the distributor/coil and test the spark value. i would also check wires as well. your problem should be in one of these specific areas.
