Question about 1994 Ford Escort
I have a 94 ford escort gt 1.8l engine its not firing we replaced all the ignition parts starting with the plugs and wire rotorcap and button,coil ,tested igntion modual tested good then replace distrubutor.then ran fine for two or three days now the problem persist no fire!
You've done the most obvious, and we're still in the process of elimination -
You said -"no fire" so that's completely dead - not even a missfire?
The problem should be at the coil, or 12V side of things.
The coils usually fail at high voltage, - so test OK with a meter, just break down in use as the insulation is defective.
I had a car that was stripped of everything - and it ended up being a defective coil - which is what I suggested in the first place.
Make sure you are getting 12V to the coil with the ignition ON.
If possible test the coil by using the HV output directly to a spark plug (one of the old ones) - then ground the other terminal.
(make sure you have both contacts) You should get a spark when turning ignition on and off.
Any noise from the coil during testing will indicate a fault also.
Check battery condition and clean contacts as a precaution.
Don't shock yourself! - take safety precautions against this.
