Check grounding first,
replace coil- not expensive.
check the module connected to the computer(ECU).

getting the spark is a good sign!
try those first

BTW- NKG spark plugs beat BOSCH.

good luck!

How do I find the timing marks on a 1992 voyager


Sounds like you replaced the distributor without setting #1 at TDC? The distributor cap should indicate which plug is the #1 plug wire. If there are no inspection plugs you can pop out to see the timing marks on the camshaft gears you will need to disable the starting system (fuel flow) remove #1 plug and turn it over until #1 piston is at TDC on the compression stroke. Then insert the distributor cap with the rotor on it, taking note of where the #1 plug tower is on the cap. Once the dist is installed place the cap on and make sure the end of the rotor is aligned with the #1 tower inside, if it is your good to go. If not take the dist out and turn it a bit left or right then put it in again until it lines up correctly (may take a few tries). Once aligned secure everything, replace spark plug and it should fire up.

My 1992 VW Cabriolet will not start in humid or wet weather. Should I start repairs by checking moisture in the distributor cap and then replacing cap if necessary? If that does not fix the problem,...


first of all if you have moisture in your d-cap itll prob missfire or bk-fire when you try to start it. if this is the case then yest replace both the d-cap and rotor. you do both at the same time no mater what so you always start with clean electrodes and to ensure the propper spacing between the 2.

1993 VW Cabriolet stopped running at stop sign. Would not restart. Replaced coil, cap and rotor. Car still will not start. No spark coming out of new coil to distributor. Timing light shows no spark...


I would remove and verify the rotor is turning when the motor is cranked over, you may have a broken timing belt. Also check the ignition control module which is mounted under the hood, driver side, upper firewall, mounted below plastic drip tray.

Will not start


Did you install the correct plugs, and did you check the gap? Also check all wires again to make sure nothing was pulled off, or loosened by accident.

Weak spark from dist cap to plugs. spark from coil primary is as it should be. Plugs were carbon fouled from rich condition. this is a 92 bronco 5.8 windsor motor.changed out plugs,cap,rotor,and remote tfi...


The engine is definitely in an over rich fuel condition if you are blowing black smoke. I would suspect a bad 02 sensor, but the flooding condition you describe at starting could be other things. I would check the codes and proceed from there.

1992 HONDA ACCORD WILL CRANK BUT NOT START


No spark is uasually caused by a faulty coil or the trigger unit,both are inside the distributor. Get a used distributor fron a scrap yard (about $4o) and replace yours.Remove the dis.cap and turn the engine until the rotor is pointing to fire # 1 cyclinder,and mark the exact position of the base before removing from the block." Do not turn the engine" Install the other Dist. with the base in exactly the same position and the rotor pointing exactly to # 1 cyclinder. Note. Failing to install the other dist.exactly the way you took the first one out will throw the timing out!!!!!
Be doing all of this be sure there is no spark.
