gee guy, 3.1L or 3.2L?
you only need 3 things to time the distrib. static.
where is #1, its the most forward cylinder, LOOK carefully.
forward means closest to the cam drive end of engine.
not flywheel end.
rotor rotation direction (crank and watch it)
now the order, 3.2l v6? IS It? the single cam?

No fire to sparkplugs


Bit late here, but I love Datsuns! First check if you are getting power to coil on the + side of coil. Pretty much a straight path from ignition switch to coil. Then pull off coil to distributor cable at the distributor and check for spark on that wire when cranking engine over. If good, rotor, distributor cap, plug wires, or sparkplugs need checked. If no spark from coil, it should be tested with an ohmmeter for proper resistance values, or swap in another coil.
Does it have mechanical points and condenser or electronic ignition?

I own a toyota gli '93 and i was taught that to check if your sparkplugs are ok, you should try unplugging each sparkplug by pulling out the tension wire attached. If the engine shake, the your sparkplug...


If you remove the a plug wire and the spark has no where to go, it will find the weakest spot. Sounds like the spark found a weak spot in your distributor, it either found a ground path through the rotor or it fried the coil, in any case its going to be something inside the distributor. By the way pulling the wires with the engine running does not tell you the condition of the spark plugs it only tell you if the cylinders are contributing any power.

I tested the 3 sparkplug wires I can get to without removing my head, and none of them have spark. What does this mean?


If the spark plugs have no spark, then this sound like a bad power coil block. I is at the other end of the spark plug wires. If all of the wires plug into one circular block, this is known as the distributor. It could be the power coil that feeds the distributor via one wire to the center or the distributor could not be spinning. You can take the top off of the distributor and then have someone crank the engine over to make sure it is spinning.

I am trying to start my engine on my 1985 4runner it turns over but doesnt catch on.. what should I do..


'85's mostly had 4 cylinder engines, 22R, 22RE and 22REI. Remove a sparkplug wire and stick a sparkplug into the end. Hold the sparkplug, preferably with a well insulated glove, against a good metal part (exhaust manifiold will do, no paint or rust) nearby being carefull to stay clear of the fan. Now have someone turn the key and when the engine turns, see if a spark is jumping across the sparkplug your are holding...snap,...snap..snap....is what you should see and hear. If not, your ignition is not creating spark. Remove the center wire of the distributor and try to put the sparkplug on the end of that wire and repeat the previous test. If you get spark that means the distributor cap is not transferring the spark thru it to the wires that go down to your sparkplugs. Remove and replace the distributor cap and the rotor inside paying special attention to mark the wires and where they plug into the cap. The rotor only goes on one way, same with the cap. If you dont get spark coming to the center wire of the distributoe cap your ignitin module may be bad, a good time to have a shop run a test on it. Before heading to the shop, be sure to check your fuses. Maybe you should do that first as it is the simplest. If you have spark at the sparkplug and still no starting, a small amount of gasoline poured into the intake ( please dont pour a cup of gas into it! Just a spoonfull or so). With the sparkplug wires inplace, crank the motor. If it kicks and then goes back to cranking with no results, your fuel isnt getting to the intake. Could be a fuel pump (common) or a plugged fuel filter. The filter is easy, replace it. To test for fuel pressure you will need to locate the fuel line coming to the intake, carburated or injected, the inlet can be loosened and have someone turn the key on and you should see some fuel leaking around the fitting you only loosened. DO NO REMOVE IT-JUST LOOSEN. If you have fuel pressure your problem needs a mechanic. If no fuel pressure it's time to check the fuel pump thru the access panel under the backseat. BE SURE TO TIGHTEN THE INLET FUEL FITTING AT THIS POINT. Good luck.
REMEMBER- GASOLINE IS VERY DANGEROUS. DO NOT PERFORM THESE DIAGNOSTICS UNLESS YOU FEEL TRAINED ENOUGH TO DO SO AND ALWAYS WITH AN EXTINGUISHER ON HAND.

We changed spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, distributor button, etc. We unbolted the entire distributor assembly and pulled it out from the engine. We now can't get the car to start or run. How do I...


Does "entire distributor aseembly" include the metal gear shaft??
If so, you must remove the distributor again and re-insert it in the proper gear groove.
Normally, you "mark" the distributor and the engine with a marker before you remove the shaft so that you can replace it so the gears mesh in the correct position.

You can use "trial and error" to reposition the distributor or you can:

1. Turn the engine to the "Top Dead Center" (TDC) position so that the distributor rotor points to the #1 cylinder sparkplug wire.
2. The rotor on the distributor shafdt should be positioned to "point" to the #1 sparkplug wire.
3. Re-insert the distributor gear shaft.

Please comment if you need better detail...

Ignition Distributor location


There is no cap and rotor, as the vehicles igntion system is DIS (digital ignition system). The recommended tune-up on these motors require sparkplug and coil replacement. The coil type in this vehicle is COPs (coil over plugs). Usually moist and oxidation develope on the sparkplug chamber walls from faulty or worn coil boots. This causes the coil to short, they must be replaced at 75,000 miles at the same time the sparkplugs are replaced. Typical symtoms are: Vehicle stalls (restarts and runs normal), intermitted jerks/sputter while driving, misfires, rough idle, severe power loss. Hopefully this helps

Where is the distributor on a 1993 Isuzu Rodeo


At the opposite end of the wire where it connects to the sparkplug on a 4 cyl and V6. A 1993 V6 has a coil pack and is not called a distributor. Should be three delco coils.
