No spark fromcoil

coil is on top of the disributor and gets a signal from the chip under the rotor inside the cap..remove the cap and look at the rotor (see if the center metal tab is burnt out, and look under the coil for the carbon tip there, if its gone that needs replaced) these H.E.I units will jump the fire from the coil straight through to the rotor shaft and to the groung of the block.. hence no fire to plugs..replace the chip, under the rotor, the rotor and get a new cap, putting the coil fromthe old one into the top of the new one, making sure the carbon tip is under the coil before careful to relocat each plug wire one at a time so timing order is good this will take around a good hour to do if you are careful and dont get in a rush..good luck and repost if an issue should come back up..

Truck wont crank. we have put new distributor cap, rotor button, coil pack, plugs, wires, and fuel pump. we also checked our firing order.

you said you repl dist cap that means you don't have a crank sensor you have electronic ing module. remove your elec ing module have it tested most auto parts stores could test your module, or check your coil at the neg terminal. should have power. if not you lost your primary volt from your batt.your secondary power is coming from your electronic ing module from the module to the pos terminal on the coil, when the eng cranks,from the coil to the dist cap , from the dist cap center to the rotor then out to the plugs,this all happen pervided the timing belt or timing chain is ok. the cumbustion chainber needs 3 things , thats fuel, air, and spark.

I have a 96 Nissan 200SXE 1.6 liter eng. I recently replaced my distributor cap. I coiled spring fell out of the bottom of the distributor from a hole that holds a leg on the inside of the distr. cap...

You are not going to find individual parts for that distributor. The dealer is not going to have them either. The distributor is serviced only as a complete assembly, less the cap and rotor. You can try a salvage yard for a used distributor and put your new cap and rotor on it, or you can buy a "remanufactured" one from the local parts house. I doubt if the dealer would even have a new distributor for a '96. They may be able to order a remanufactured one...which is probably "remanufactured" by the same people that do the ones at the local retail parts store.
