It should not cause any issues with the distributor.

I'd look at it anyway, as it may need to be replaced just do to it's age, should it have not been replaced in a while.

After replacing my distributor on my 89 toyota corolla it wont start


It is possible that if you replaced the distributor, you simply have the plugs in the wrong firing order. Another possibility is that you need new spark plugs, wires, plugs, distributor rotor and possibly a distributor cap. A long shot problem is the ignition coil, but since you have spark in one plug, it is unlikely.

1996 toyota celica has no spark


It sounds like your ignition coil has failed. Failing this check your leads.

No fire to distributor


I'm sure you know the fuel pump won't have any affect on the ignition.
You may need a repair book to get the procedures and wiring diagrams to troubleshoot the ignition system.
I am assuming a new coil came with the replacement distributor. Did the cap and rotor get replaced too ?
Do you have voltage going to the distributor coil ?
Is the rotor turning when the engine is cranked ?

My toyota corolla was idline fine then just cut off . no spark in distributor


If your engine cranks normally but will not start and cuts off because it has no spark, or it stalls and won't restart because it has no spark, the problem may be due to any of the following:
A bad pickup inside the distributor a stripped distributor drive gear (common problem with plastic distributor drive gears, broken, loose or corroded wires from the pickup to the ignition module or PCM.
If there is power going from the coil to the dist, but no spark coming out of the dist. the Condenser is bad. Small round thing that has a wire that hooks to the points. If the engine has no spark, check for voltage at the coil positive terminal when the ignition key is on.
If there is voltage, the problem is on the trigger side of the coil (pickup, crank sensor, ignition module or primary wiring circuit).
If there is NO voltage at the coil, the problem is on the supply side (the ignition switch or ignition wiring circuit).
If the coil has voltage, the problem may be a bad high voltage output wire from the coil to the distributor, hairline cracks in the coil output tower, or cracks or carbon tracks inside the distributor cap or on the rotor.You can check this with voltmeter.------------------
That's it.

Replace old points distributor with a electronic ignition distributor in a toyota hiace van as well as wiring conversion.


this is easy if you can find parts meant for it. Need a distributor, a crank sensor and pulley with a reference point for the sensor, a control module, coil, cap, rotor, wires, and you should be good to go.the CKP (crank sensor) tells the module when to fire, the module fires the coil, and the distributor determines basically when it fires in terms of milliseconds (basic timing), same as with points. The timing via distributor is necessary since the fuel is not controlled via CMP (cam sensor). otherwise the distributor would be fixed and the computer would control fuel volume/timing and ignition timing at the same time, and since there is no reference for the fuel or valve timing, the module has no way to determine the most effective timing therefore simply fires when the crank passes the sensor.

No spark when trying to start my 1992 Toyota Celica GT. The engine died while I was driving. It will crank over but won't start.


Remove the distributor cap and see if you see a rust colored dust inside. If so, the the distributor is bad and needs to be replaced. The igniter in the distributor is not working properly
