How can we check the ignitor and coil ? what are the specs?


What engine do you have? You could still hear your fuel pump running but if you haven't checked the fuel pressure you may still have a problem with your fuel pump. You should be around 38 to 44 PSI when key is turned on not running. Did you verify you are getting spark or is there nothing to the plugs? Your ignition coil resistance should be (cold 9000-15,400 ohms) Primary should be .36-.55.
Your pickup coil resistance depending whether you are California or excluding California
California is
cold- pick up coil terminals G1 & G- Ohms 125-200
cold-Pick up coil terminals G2 & G- Ohms 125-200
cold-Pick up Coil terminals NE & G- Ohms 155-250
Ex. California models
cold-Pick up coil terminals G+ & G- Ohms 185-275
Cold-Pick up coil terminals NE+ & NE- Ohms 370-550 ohms
You also need to check air gap between PIck-up Coil & Signal rotor
California is .008-.020
Except California .008-.016

Here are some of the suggestions from Mitchell books:
ENGINE CRANKS BUT FAILS TO START:
*Ensure proper spark exists from ignition system
*Ensure Fuel system performs properly (fuel pump, Fuel filter, Fuel injectors, fuel pressure regulator).
*Check engine compression, valve clearance, valve timing and timing belt (if equipped)
Check airflow meter or MAP sensor and wiring
*Check idle air control valve (if equipped) and wiring.
*Check circuit opening relay and EFI main relay.
*Check STA signal at Engine Control Modual (ECM)
*Check Engine Control Modual (ECM) and wiring.

96vw jeta won't start and i've changed both engine and trans mission computers and i stilll don't get any fire.


Have you checked for spark. Where did you get the coil? I have found that aftermarket coils do not work on these only the factory ones. I can't explain it. But I have one in my shop with a bad coil and got two from o'reilly and two from napa and both would do nothing. Got one from VW, car ran perfect. Checked the aftermarket coils and the resistance was different on the primary side of the coil.

Engine died & wont start no spark ignition coil tested good


try your ignition module in the distributor much more likely. just install rebuilt distributor if that is the problem , if you just replace module the main distributor assem will **** out shortly after.
Make sure you check for broken timing belt also it is one of those two!

1994 Toyota Camry Won't start.


you should check 3 things. AIr, Fuel, and "spark"
your cars could have many problems. Ignition module, fuel injectors, Mass Airflow Sensor.
You should check into all of these 3 things.
a crank-no start could be many things.
it could even be a cam positions sensors resistance going up when the engine heats up. Cracnk- no start means testing. n like i said
The motor is getting Air, There is Fuel being put into the cylinders, and the Spark plugs are firing.

Car wont start when it rains or damp


I also have a 96 camery, and have had problems when it was damp, it would not run well. It did start, but did not run well. You mentioned that you had changed the distributer. If you have not changed the rotor too, that is more than likely your problem. The extreme high voltage that todays cars have makes it easy for the ignition spark to jump a couple of inches. If there is a rust line, a crack with moisture or what ever, the electricity will follow the path of least resistance. If you have any WD-40, spray it around on the rotor, distributer cap, and top of the coil. It should start, as this displaces the water. If you can watch it in the dark, you may see fire jumping around the coil, or distributor cap. I hope this solves your mistry!
