My 81 f250 351 winsor isnt getting spark ignition module ,coil ,distributor,cap and rotor,plugs and wires all new i gapped plugs at .044 help


got +12v to the ign coil? does the coil spark if you ground the negative(-) terminal? does the distributor rotor rotate? it may be time to replace the distributor sproket and module (stator and armature). http://ww2.justanswer.com/uploads/Ovalex/2010-12-11_153049_duraspark_stator_exploded_view.gif

1996 City chico. No fire on the distributor. I replaced the electronic coil, had the distributor and the "module" tested. Still nothing. strater motor turns bur car doesnt start! Its got the small sol


Get yourself a test light/continuity tester, the one with the point on it, turn the ignition switch on and check if have power on the wire to the distributor. Since the distributor's been tested, you know its good, so the only thing it could be is no power to the distributor.

I have a 93 gmc z71. Its been running really weird. It has no acceleration and its been shaking bad at low speeds. All plugs, coil, distributor, rotor have been replaced. New computer as well. Used an obd1...


I'm showing code 72 as being a problem with the vehicle speed sensor, and code 81 as a 2nd - 3rd shift error in the transmission.
Have you replaced the plug wires, and checked the base fuel pressure ?

I installed new distributor on 98 dodge stratus 2.5 v-6 i raised the number one piston to the top put the distributor in moved the rotor under the number one wire and im still not getting any fire


Did you bring number 1 to top dead center on the COMPRESSION stroke? Also, did you hook everything up right? Make sure everythings plugged in where it's supposed to be. Also, how are you checking for spark?

I have no spark i replaced the spark plugs spark wires and the coil pack and still nothing my power distribution box is fine any ideas


Crank engine with distributor cap removed, is it turning?
(That is if it has a distributor cap, some newer cars don’t have one)is it turning?
Broken timing belt or chain?

Are you getting power to the + positive side of the coil (small wires) with key on ? Hint; I use a needle pushed into the back of the plug so as not to damage the wiring.
If you have power then wiring from the ignition switch is OK. It usually is.
Hook your test light to the - negative side of the coil (one end on the - terminal and the other end on a ground). You should have power on the - side of the coil with the key on and engine off.
Crank the engine while watching the test light. Get a flashing signal at the test light when cranking?
If so and you have no spark the coil is likely dead. (don’t rely merely on resistance tests for a coil, a weak coil can test ok for resistance but still give no spark. It happens but is unusual. I learned this the hard way!)
No flashing signal?
Check continuity in all primary circuit wiring for opens.
If they are good,
It is time to check the pulse generator in the distributor. (That is if it has a distributor cap, some newer cars don’t have one, if it doesn’t then the ECM or computer sends signal via the crankshaft position sensor and the camshaft position sensor)
With the engine in non-running condition connect your A/C voltmeter to the pair of wires at the pulse generator and crank the engine. You are looking for an A/C signal that makes 4-6 volts of A/C. Got this? If so the ignition module is dead or has a bad ground. If not (more likely) you have a dead pulse generator in the distributor.
If you have three wires in the distributor signal wire you have a Hall effect sensor. I forget how to test that one. (Chrysler stuff)


If this part of the primary ignition tests ok then check wiring to ECM pinouts for opens. Wiring tests ok. ECM as last resort.
Hope this helps...........

81 jeep cj7 wont start after rewiring


check this,
remove a convenient spark plug, stick it on it's wire and place where you can see it, stick you finger over the spark plug hole and have a friend crank the engine, note whether the air blast and spark are the same instant if not the distributor's out of time

Im not getting any spark


What was the problem that caused you to fit the distributor? If it was an attempt to fix the problem that you still have, then you need to work backwards from the distributor. Remove the central HT lead that feeds to the distributor from the coil, hold it a couple of millimeters from the egnine block and turn the engine over, do you see a spark there? If you do the didtributor is the issue, if you don't it is probably fine and the problem is further back.
Next, try a known good HT lead and connect this to the coil and repeat the step above. If no spark then the coil is not operating. At this stage, I have to admit that I don't know if the celica has a separate coil??? If it does then there will be 2 wires to it, one to earth and the other being fed a pulse of positive power. Remove the positive feed, connect a wire to the terminal and holding the HT lead near to the block again, replicate the power pulse by tapping the other end of your wire on the positive terminal of the battery. If you get a spark, then it is the feed that is powering up the coil. Of you don't then you have a dead coil and it will need changing.
