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'

99 chevy g3500 wont start

do you have injector pulse? the "hall effect" you mentioned is the camshaft position sensor it times the injectors to the ignition fire. the coil is actually triggered by the crankshaft sensor . is the rotor turning while starter is engaged, if not the drive gear pin could be sheared and not getting the spark out to the wires.GOOD LUCK.

Have a 86 ram 50 pick-up will not start no fire from coil but fire to coil changed coil still same problem

check the ignition module and the rotor bug also check the hall effect sensor in the distributor with a OHM meter to insure that it is within range

No spark installed new coil and had mogel for the distibutor checked

Check fuses relays and ground wires. The check inside the distributor cap and make sure the piece the rotor inside distributor is clean of oil and the area below hall effect is dry and without oil.The piece down below is also a item that can effect it from is a magneto and it controls the firing and fuel by sending signals to the ecm. If you check the above without finding an issue the best thing to do is see if you can borrow a scan tool to get any codes that could be helpful with diagnosing. Im sorry if this isnt exact help but it is trail and elimination that fixes issues like this instead of just replaceing parts.
