Re: no spark ignition
Hello stumps. I will try to help you solve your problem. To be honest with you I do not see many of these vehicles in my area but I have access to information. I am proficient in electrical repair and we may have to converse to solve the problem. There is a power transistor (igniter) in the circuit, the ECU, and a resistor condenser/assembly that is involved in operation of ignition Does it have power on the black/red wire on the ignition coil and the resistor condenser (same circuit) when the key is turned on? Is there a good ground on the black wire to the transistor and the resistor/condenser? Is there continuity on the green wire between the coil, resistor and the transistor? .Leave your answers and comments and I will return.

No. The ignitor is usually an ignition module mounted outside the distributor, on the fender well in most Toyotas. In early Chevys the equivalent part is the ignition module inside the distributor (which failed often). The capacitor at the base of the coil on early cars is a noise suppressor for the radio.
No spark on newer EFI cars is often the ignition module (ignitor), crank or cam sensor, or bad coil.
Vehicles either have a distributor for mechanically controlled igntion timing or are distributorless and have coil packs or individual ignition coils which are electronically controlled by the vehicles electronic control module or a powertrain control module. Simply look at your engine's cylinder head and see if the plug wire goes into a distributor cap or into a coil pack (which looks like a small block with other plug wires attached as well)
The ignitors (ignition module) in the distributors tended to fail in
early nissans and sometimes the best way to fix it is to replace the
whole distributor with a new remanufactured one. One thing that can
cause the ignitor and ignition coil to go bad is to crank the engine
with the distributor cap off or the spark plug wires disconnected who told you theres a distributor fuse there isnt one
Most of the time these distributor come with the ignition module did your, if it did and it has not been that long and is still under warranty, have it replace, if it did not come with one replace module.
it is mounted on the side of the ignition distributor body, here is a picture, u should also change the Stator inside the distributor, this requires you remove the distributor from the engine and then drive out the roll pin that holds the drive gear on, this is not for the do it yourself-er
you should check power at each one to verify that they have power, which engine do you have 4 or 6 cyl? the 4cyl the coil is seperate from the distributor and the module is located on the side of the distributor, the 6cyl it is all inside the distributor, but to replace parts without verifing power is not cost effective. The most common ignition failure is the ignition module, but you still need to verify that it receives power.
