Replace the pick up coil,in the distributor,along with the ignition module,these work together to pulse the injectors,and the spark for the coil.If one,or both of the parts are bad ,in the distributor,then this would be the problem,also,if you believe the distributor is a good part,and are sure,replace the coil,make sure the rotor button is turning,if it is not,then the timing chain has broke.Rate please,if this was at all helpful,thank you.

1989 chevy k1500 wont start after changing distributor and rotor


very good but did you check that the no1 piston was on tdc firing before you replaced the distributor . You may be 180degrees out on the firing order.

Change my spark plugs and distrubutor cap and the 85 ranger want start


You may have got the spark plug wires out of sequence.
Reseat the coil wire going to the center of the distributor cap Check the spark plug wires at the distributor against the firing order as follows:
The spark plug firing order is 1 - 4 - 2 - 5 - 3 - 6 The distributor rotor turns CLOCKWISE The engine cylinders / spark plugs are numbered :
firewall 3 - 6 2 - 5 1 - 4 front
Best wishes,

We've replaced the distributor cap and rotor in our 1985 Chevy C10 305 V8 and still have to fire TO the plugs. It won't start


This is a one piece distributor. It has the coil and pickup sensor all built in. Check and see if you have 12 volts on the large red wire that plugs into the cap while the key is on. (The other wire is for a tachometer if you have one). If you have power and there is no spark from your ignition wires, your pickup module is bad in the distributer. Very rarely have I seen a failed coil.

Change the distributor cap and rotor now car wont start


you may have the firing order wrong
look on the intake manifold you should see the firing order
it should be 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2
on each side of the intake there are number 1-3-5-7 on one side and 2-4-6-8 on the other side

Spark plug order to distributor


For a 1985 Chevy S10 with a 2.8L engine the firing order is: 1-2-3-4-5-6 The Distributor rotation is clockwise.Take off the cap and bump engine till the rotor points to the no. 1 plug. this is the no.1 contact on the cap. follow rotation around the cap in order. {ie. 2,3,4 ect.} hope this helps.

Will Not Start


Check the distributor for cracks and check the rotor inside the distributor, it may be worn out.

Trying to start the engine but its not starting.just finish changing out the distributor cap.replaced the spark plug and the wire.


Did you chg. all the wires or just one, i'am assuming you chg. all the wires and you got them on wrong, take the cap off and rotate engine until the pointer is lined up on zero on the harmonic balancer and then see where the rotor is pointed if it points at the carb or in the visinity thats #1 if it points to the fire wall rotate engine around again to zero, just align the rotor with the one on the cap and go from there, Fireing order is 18436572 rotor runs clockwise 1357 left side of engine 2468 right side of engine front to rear.
