Check to make sure you have 12 volts going to the distributor. You should be able to check this at the connecter going into the distributor. Unplug it, turn the key switch to "on", connect the ground on your test light or meter to a bolt on the engine and you should have power. If not, I would start checking all of your fuses and if they are all good, then I would start tracing the wire back looking for burns or cuts.

1988 Ford F350 460,fuel injected, Wont start,,, Coil only sends spark once per revolution of the rotor


Hello Donn,

UN-fortunately 1988 is WELL before the OBD
(on board diagnostic)... DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE
Codes (DTC) got standardized...

So DAYS can be wasted looking for commonality...
(troubles).

Rather than assuming your spark, timing, fuel, ECU...
Oxygen Sensors. INJECTORS are all askew...

I would suggest that if you SATURATED YOUR
HEADER BOLTS with LIQUID WRENCH...

and opened you EXHAUST ahead of your catalytic
converters... ahead of your mufflers... you engine would run...

Obviously DANGEROUS to operate in that condition... at
least you would know what had to be REPLACED before
you can operate your vehicle SAFELY.

If you decide the job is a bit too much... at least
check out your PURCHASE cost of a replacement
CAT and/or MUFFLER...

My '91 non turbo Capri won't start. It just "shut off" a couple days ago It would start for a while, then once the tach hit 1.5 it would shut down. I would pull over and restart the cat and it would start,...


Sounds like your computer needs to be replaced, it controls all of the ignition firing order. somethng else, the cam position sensor may be bad also, only 2 other problems I'm aware of in the ignition circuit.

It's possible the fuel filter is clogged up. If it has been a while since you changed the fuel filter, it may need to be changed. It is either located in the tank or between the tank and carbeurator. You may also have gotten bad gas or water in the gas. Check this also.

The car will pop alittle when you try to start it...It wants to start but wont..replaced the fuel filter,plugs.I have spark to all plugs..I can squirt gas into the intake and it will run but will not idle...


usually when a vehicle backfires, it is caused by the timing or a bad crank sensor. symtoms of a bad coolant sensor are--poor cold idle, stalling, ( rich mixture,retarded timing) slow idle speed, cold hesitation or stumble, and poor fuel milage. check coolant sensor first. good-luck!!

My 91 sundance 2.2L when it starts the engine shakes and makes alot of noise and i can smell gas like big time.Also when i put it in gear (drive or reverse) the car dies by itself please help me.


There are many possible solutions to your problem. Is it due for a tune up (spark plugs, fuel and air filters, PCV, etc). If the car has been maintained and this is a sudden problem I would look first at spark. Reason? Because it stalls going into gear.You can smell fuel so it's less likely the problem, It just isn't getting burned properly.
If you can, start it in poor light conditions with the hood open and look for sparks jumping off the ignition wires. If you do, replace them.
Another common problem is a slipped timing belt, one tooth off and those engines ran poorly, something like you are experiencing now. Another common problem was a bad EGR valve. If it sticks open at idle it allows exhaust gas back in when it shouldn't be.
Need more help after checking that let me know.
