The distributor drive gear probably is striped out. not too bad if it is that. The only other thing it can be is the cam is broken or striped. Much more likely the distributor gear. You can remove it and get a new dist. or a used one. bring the number one cylinder up to top dead center and line up the rotor with the distributor cap #1.

Not too tough to do. hope this helps

I am working on a 1993toyota Corolla 1.8 no fire changed whole distributed assembly tested power coming to coil it's good still no spark checked all fuses there ok any sugestions

if the coil is tested fully and is good where have you checked for it being good? have you checked if the HT lead from the coil to the distributor is carrying power? If you have power at the distributor cap , all the contacts are good, the rotor is fine, (check current at the distributor cap centre pin) then the likely problem is the machanism for firing, i.e. Hall sensor . I would check all the HT leads, distributor cap, rotor etc. you should carry out the checks systematically. I.E. First check at the coil with a multi meter. Then check at the end of the Ht lead from coil to distributor , actually within the lead itself , for current. then attach it to distributor if it shows a current...if you are getting a current from the distributors centre pin the issue is probably the cap itself, the rotor arm, the firing system, it will probably be electronic as mechanical distributors went out some years before I think. or if that is okay, the leads themselves. I would guess that is is distributor cap or firing system related'

How install distributor chevy 5.7 1998

bring no1 piston to TDC firing on the timing mark on the balancer and line the rotor button point to under no1 plug lead and place the distributor in the block . As it goes in the rotor will turn out of position so lift up the distributor until you can reposition the rotor just forward of the position so that when the distributor is full in the rotor lines up with no1 plug lead. The movement is from the helix on the drive gears and you have to compensate for that when positioning the rotor button.. leave the retaining clamp just loose enough to turn the body of the distributor . After fitting all the leads in the correct firing order . start the engine and using a timing light move the distributor body until you get the timing mark on the required degrees advanced ( normally around 12 ) and then lock up the clamp.

1993 Subaru loyale Engine won't start distributor

if rotor (this is the one that turns and not the distributor), then its either your starter is broken or you have a drained battery.

also, for worst cases, your timing belt/chain is broken

My 1993 ford tempo will not start because the distributor rotor is not in the correct place. I figured out the correct firing order but not the positioning of the rotor. What is the correct positioning of...

The rotors for most cars have a guide groove or have a guide inside the rotor. If they don't they will rotate on the shaft and you would lose timing. Check your rotor and see if the guide is broken off. If this is the problem you need to buy a new rotor.

1993 ecilpse 1.8 eng no spark. there is 12v at the dist

So you have voltage at the distributor and the rotor is turning. Check for voltage at the end of each plug wire. If you do not have voltage there you are loosing it in the wire or the cap. Is the cap new? Are cap and rotor new?
Just be sure you have voltage at every point between the distributor and the plugs.
Good luck!
