What does the distributer control

The distributor controls when the spark is required ( ignition timing) by the position of the cam block exciter or points and then distributes that spark to the relevant spark plug lead depending on the firing order.. IT gets it's order from the crank position via the timing mark on the pulley and when you position the pulley at the required number of degrees advanced that is required then the distributer (properly positioned) will deliver a spark to the right spark plug at the right time.

1992 geo storm replaced distributer have fire out of coil wire but no fire spark plug wire module in distributer checks out

storm is an ISUZU
and had 3engines,which one? below is off wiki on storm.
1.6 L SOHC 4XE1 I4
1.6 L DOHC 4XE1 I4
1.8 L DOHC 4XF1 I4

coil makes 50,000 volts (even 1kv makes fire, but is too weak spark
spark plugs dead , right? all 4 right?
ever do a 60k mile tune up ? if not why not, it gets new spark parts then..
also, if the cam timing is off. the dizzy sparks between towers
make the distributor useless, it cant distribute spark.
so the first tests are .
static ignition timing. (yes, a tool, called a timing light for $20)
if timing is good the the wires HV are bad.
if timing is bad, bingo..... this is the first test on any motor.
if the timing belt or chain on any SOHC or DOHC engine slips
the dizzy will be way to h3ll off.
learn to use a timing light, and works 100% cranking.

look at that distributor cap (replace it)
see the coil wire , center, that is at 50kv spark.
and see that rotor, if the spark is good at the cap pins 1 to 4
then the dizzy is timed.
if the spark dont reach the spark plugs that means
the wire are bad or the spark plugs are shorted, or both.
its that simple. using a real spark testing tools tells you the KV.
kv = kilovolts. the best tools $5 bucks have and adjustable gap
this car is not 100kv, like newer cars and must be set (tool) to 50kv or tad less to show full powerful spark.

take care not to get shocked, keep hands off the parts
as friend cranks (or remote start button tool)

What happens when their is no fire in the spark plugs

Check your distributer cap and rotor, could be worn. Cheap items, just get new ones. Also check the coil wire and coil to the plugs. Could be bad. Disconnect the coil wire from the distributer and lay the end of the wire against the engine metal ,DO NOT HOLD IT. Turn the key to start the car (the car will not start, of course) and see the wire spark against the metal. If not, the coil or wire are bad.

No spark from cap n rotor, rotor is turning. replaced spark plugs, rotor,distributer cap,coil, and still getting no spark. check fuses and automatic system shutdown system. why isnt there any spark to the...

Are you getting power to the coil on the dark green wire with the orange stripe? The relay must have power to the coil and also to the contact. If yes, then problem might be with the crankshaft position sensor.

it does not mean new parts are alway good. subtitive a known good wire and check for spark at the wire, if there is spark then check the plug.
if there is no spark then go back to your cap.

hi there, you need to make sure all wires to spark plugs are tight and very snug, you will also need to check the distributer cap to make sure no burns are on it, and make sure the plugs are in proper firing positions, the spark rotation might be out of sequence.....also make sure spark plugs are clean of all oil, and dirt, firing pin in distributer cap might be bad.....hope this

No fire

Coil pack. Distributer. Spark plugs. And spark plug wires are all things that deal with the firings of the motor. the distributer cap and rotor may also be bad.
