SOURCE: car cranks but no start


Based on the used electrical design, one terminal of the ignition coil would be +12V when IGN switch is ON/RUN. It is the other terminal that is switched by a CDI/igniter. If the igniter will not switch the coil, then you will not have any spark. The igniter to work needs a pulse trigger input from the engine (to know when to fire).

In some instances, there is an immobilizer that disables the coil from firing as part of the vehicle's security system. You may want to have a look at your alarm system also.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: 94 toyota camery no spark

I had the same problem recently but replacing the ignition Coil under the distributor (inside) solved the problem. Also replaced the distributor Cap and rotor at the same time.

SOURCE: diagram for replacing distributor, cap, rotor...

Replace the coil. It is shorted out. I have changed quite a few coils for the exact same symptom.

The graciousness of a FixYa rating for my assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.

if its got no fire and you changed your cam and crank sensor try replacing the ignition Coil then if it doesn't work replace the distributor cap and spark plugs and wires if that doesn't work then take the distributor cap off and replace the distributor Rotor if it still doesn't work replace the wires to the rotor if still i dosent work check your fuses but i assure you that should fix it.

I have a 1998 durango, I have no spark from disturbtor but have spark from coil

Replace the distributor cap and rotor. If you have fire from the coil but not from the distributor cap, you have a bad contact point between the cap and rotor. Replace both and you should be good to go,, if the information that you have supplied is correct.

Car won't start battery is good, not getting spark. Should I replace the distrbuter cap

I don't think the distributor cap will solve you problem. I would advise looking at the ignition module which is much more susceptible to failure than distributor caps.

1989 Ford F250 - no spark

firstly check points under distubuetr cap see if they are o.k , usaully no pimple on the contact point's , secondly if you have replaced them and still no spark , check coil lead by swapping for a spark plug lead and test again , still no spark then replace coil.

if all these fail , then your distributor cap or distributor may be at fault .

start from easiest solution to hardest .

i think you will solve problem , good luck , hope i was of some help

Cranks over slowly but doesn t seem to want to run on all cylinders

First remove and inspect the spark plugs If one is coated with black carbon replace it and if the car has not had a tune up in recent memeory replace the distributor cap if equipped and all spark plugs. If this car has individual coils only replace the corresponding coil with bad plug after replacing the spark plug wires and plugs, and only isf the problem persists it may be a bad coil for that cylinder or spark plug.

I have a 1998 chevy silverado when trying to start it it acts like its out of gas and just keeps cranking and will not start. i tryed spraying starting fluid it carb thinking it might be fule pump but...

Check to see if it has spark. It may be having a problem with the distributor. If you have put fuel to it to no avail, then you probably dont have spark. Could be the cap / rotor, the coil, the pickup in the distributor, or power going to the coil or distributor. Check for spark and if you dont have any, make sure you have power to the coil / distributor. If you do then try a new coil cap and rotor. Hardest part would be the pickup in the distributor if thats bad.
Heres a link to an article on the types of distributors and how to rebuild them.

Hope this helps...

Car just stopped running. Lost power suddenly.

Find an inductive pickup indicator for spark. Place on distributor cap to see if spark is at coil internal tower. If no spark at internal tower, look at ignition module or pickup coil. Ignition modules are prone to failure on 626's. But if you have spark at tower but not at the wire end, then your rotor is gone.
