If there is no spark, either no electrical at the primary coil or the coil is not working.
if you already measure primary/ secondary resistance to confirm it is OK. Here is to test it - making electric pulsed signal at the primary terminals to see it spark at the secondary terminal.
You want to confirm everything works from the coil, so you can find out what causing the coil is not working. Here are what to check the coil before a replacement::
1- Disconnect the Positive cable on the battery.
2- Hook a spark plug directly to the coil wire ( the one coming to the center of distribution cap)
3- Find a long double wire so you can connect from the terminals of the primary coil to the battery.
4- Connect each wire end to the terminal of the primary coil. It doesn't matter which polarity.
5- Connect 1 wire to the chasis ground.
6- Hold the other wire and quickly swipe it over the positive terminal of the battery. Reapeat it until are sure that you get spark or not.
7- You should see or hear a spark. If this is the case your coil is good. If itis not, your coil is bad and it need a replacement. Problem is solved.
4- If the coil is good, the problem would be from the Primary of the coil back to the ignition key: No electrical signal to turn on the coil.

Runs a few minutes, then dies and will not start again until the engine cools down - 1 hour or so.


There are a few things effected by heat that could be causing this. Crankshaft position sensor (if your car is equipped since Mercedes started using them sometime around 1991-1992), Fuel pump relay, fuel pump itself, ignition coil (s) and ignition control module (EZL). The only way to narrow down which one it is, is to diagnose the problem WHILE its not starting, so test for fuel and spark during those times and narrow it back from there.

My 1985 Mercedes 190e isn't getting fuel to the distributor, why


to start with if you got fuel to the distributor, there would be a massive explosion and a fire. Fuel goes to the carby or injectors and electrical spark is from the distributor . if you are new to the mechanics of a vehicle then get a workshop manual for your vehicle . If there is no fuel to the carby( carburettor) then the reasons will be that the pump is not working, tank not venting, filter blocked carby needle and seat problem or injector problems. If there is no spark at a plug lead then it could be immobiliser, coil, HT leads , coil or distributor ignition module.

1991 honda accord will not start, it's getting fuel and spark but will not start


Could be a weak coil or bad ignition module located in the distributor. I would replace the coil if you have not ever done so then the ignition module. The coils last about 150k miles and then can go anytime after that. I've owned four 90's Hondas and they have all had this problem. If neither of those things work then you may have a bad distributor.

91 f 150 cranks will not start fuel pumps ok please help not firing


Are you getting spark? If not, check if the distributor is turning when cranking the engine. If it is, check for power at the coil, if you've got power at coil it probably the ign module. Common on those years. If you have spark and good fuel pressure check compression. One small possiblily is the coolant temp sensor is bad causing the injectors to flood the engine, in which case you can hold the gas pedal to the floor while cranking to turn off the injectors. Good luck!

Old j reg mercedes 230te wont start


Check Injectors spraying Fuel when you start. Fuel pump prime because you hear the pump. IF pump is weak, then your Fuel distributor doesn't have correct pressure to spray fuel when injectors open. Do your sparks plug wet after trying several times. If they are dry then you don't have fuel. Replace injectors If they are wet then you don't have correct air:gas ratio of 14.6:1. Replace Fuel distributors

1991 Honda Civic STILL won't start


if your not getting spark then your coil is the mostlikely cause it's obviously not a timing issue since you stated that the rotor is spinning. if the spark plugs are bad then replace them too . to be sure that your getting spark to all cylinders test each of the spark plugs after replacing the coil. just to besure it's not starving for fuel as well spray a little ether in the breather if it fires off right away that means the even though your fuel pump works it may not have a high enough pressure. let me know the results
