Tune up 1988 Lincoln Towncar


you need: spark plugs, spark plug wires, depending on if newer system that is all. if it is older you will also need rotor cap and rotor button. label the plug wires and change one plug and corosponding wire at a time after changing the (cap and button).make shure the plug wires go on the new cap in the same order that they came off.

Ignition mystery! 1994 GMC Suburban 2500 5.7 mtr. No spark to spark plugs. Have spark from coil to distributor. Have changed coil wire, cap, rotor, ignition module, and coil. have 12.5 volts going to...


I guess you could have the ignition analyzed on an oscilloscope. Maybe a tech could see something then.
I always heard the only gap was the spark plug gap-the rotor has no gap-are you sure you got the correct rotor? And does it touch the top distributor cap coil wire tower?

Let us know. It is a mystery worthy of a solution.

I have spark at the cap but not to the sparks, already change rotr


Ok, heres how the spark works, coil, to cap,, along the rotor to the connection pins of the cap, to the spark plug wires,, and onto the plugs, inside the cap, make sure that the little center piece is hitting the center or the rotor, which goes out to the tip of the rotor,, that sends spark to the pins inside the cap,, now if your cap has any corrosion or tiny cracks,, that spark will go all over the place and not travel down its intended path, so clean off those contact pins in the cap, or replace it, if you have no spark to any of the plugs,, change the cap,, if its just to one or 2 , check the plug wires and the plugs themselves

To get a tune up on m 95 cadillac deville what parts do I need.


I would start by getting spark plugs and spark plug wires. And find out (through part store)what the gap is for your plugs.Then i would replace the cap and rotor and check your air filter. If you have over 60,000 miles i would also change the trans.filter and fluid




Spark plugs
Spark plug wires
Distributer cap

Air Filter ?

Changed plugs and rotor in my 92 chevy 3500 454 and now it turns over but it won't start. What could the problem be? At my witts end HELP!!!!!


If the truck was running prior to changing the plugs and rotor, there's not much that could have gone wrong. You didn't mention changing the distributor cap. That usually goes hand in hand with changing the rotor. Make sure the rotor wasn't installed 180 degrees off. Double check the spark plug wires to make sure they are on the right plug. If that all checks out, then you need to pull a spark plug and check for spark and fuel at the cylinder.

Spark at coil no spark at plugs


Possible! Is the rotor turning when cranked over. You may have a broken scroll pin on bottom gear of distibutor.

Im not getting spark to my spark plugs


Remove the distributor cap, so that the rotor is visible. Have an assistant turn the ignition to crank the engine over. If the rotor does not turn when the engine is cranking, then you need a timing belt or chain.

If the rotor does turn, then replace the coil.

1987 GMC Jimmy Distributor cap and Rotor replacement


A diagram may not be needed as its a reasonably easy fix to do on your own.the distributor ca p will only fit on properly one way because at the base of the cap locaters can only fit the distributor if they line up.When doing the spark plug leads do them one at a time and if nessecary write or mark leads as 1,2 etc .The rotor can only fit on one way but put a mark on the distributor to show where the rotor was pointing when you took it off and if it still points there when the new one is fitted.When changing distributor cap and leads they have to go to the correct place.Pays to mark the outside of distributor cap where the locating bits are On the new and old one.Fit the new cap and rotor then take a spark plug lead and fit to new cap 1 at a time.You can tell by lining up the marks on the outside of the distributor cap when you hold them one on top of the other.Good luck
