1998 dodge 5.2l intermitant spark no start just floods

Since you are smelling fuel and there is fuel pressure at the fuel rail, i would change the distributor cap and rotor button. If that fails to work make sure the wire clip on your coil is securely fastened to the coil. If it is and you still have intermittent spark, replace the coil itself. I hope this helps. Good luck.

Got kno spark from park plugs

You didn't state the year, make, model or engine. So I will guess it is a 4 cylinder car... late 80s or early 90s. If the coil is external ( not under the distributor cap ) You should check for spark from the coil to ground. If there is spark, that would mean there is spark going into the distributor but not coming out. That would indicate a bad distributor cap or rotor. If the coil is under the distributor cap, then you will have to remove the distributor cap. Inspect the underside of the distributor cap, look for burnt terminals, cracks or tracking. Next inspect the rotor, it requires removal of a screw through the side of the rotor into the distributor shaft. You might have to rotate the engine to access the screw. Beyond that there are three sensors and an ignitor in the distributor, some parts stores have the equiptment neccesary to test the ignitor. A new ignitor is around $80. If you have a multimeter, you can check for resistance to the three sensors at the 8 pin plug. The ohm reading should be 350-700 ohms across the blue/green wire and the blue/yellow wire, orange/blue wire and the white/blue wire, the solid orange wire and the solid white wire. None of the sensors are available to buy, so if any of these three sensors are bad, you have buy a distributor.. best of luck.

My 1986 toyota 2wd pick-up truck has no spark at the coil, the guys at auto - zone tested the coil for resistance and it check ok. the rotor turns when I crank the engine, what else should I check.-

Hello i can assist you. Hello your ignition module will cause a no spark you find your module under your distributor cap.You will see two wires go into your distributor shaft these will connect to your pick up distributor module.To remove and replace this part you will need to unscrew the distributor cap lift off and remove retaining screws on the module once you have removed this replace it with your new module reinstall your distributor cap and start.

No fire mech changed mod on dist what next

Re-check the basics . Does the distributor rotor rotate while cranking?Note: Distributer cap must be removed. Does the vehicle have enough available spark to plugs? Do we have enough fuel pressure 30-35psi min.? With a 12volt test lamp
check for power to fuel injector while cranking. one wire should
remain lit and the other one should blink.
NO ROTOR ROTATION = worn distributor gear,or timing belt failure.
NO SPARK= bad module,coil,no voltage to coil,or faulty PCM

since you have changed all of these parts,you might as well get a new or used distributor.this could be the problem.the only reason i am suggesting it is because it has happened to me on a nissan altima and on a honda civic.i am not saying this will be the problem,but with all that you have replaced,this will be about the only problem that i can think of.i really hope this information helps.take care, manny

Intermittent hesitation at steady speed.

It could be the spark plugs, plug wires, distributor cap, rotor in the cap, or an O2 sensor. does the check engine light come on?

Remove the distributor cap and look to see that the rotor button is turning,and not stopping,the truck,may have jumped time.The timing chain may hve broke.If not,replace the pick up coil in the distributor.

Replaced entire ignition still no spark 88 305 ci

There are 3 possibilities. 1 the coil. 2 the ignition module. 3 the pick up coil. In my experience the ignition module is the most common cause. It is in the distributor held in with 2 screws. The coil and module can be tested at any parts house. Good Luck
