Question about 1997 Toyota Corolla

Open Question

How do I test the coil, distributor, ignition switch, & external igniter on a 1997 Toyota Corolla DX with a 1.8L engine? The problem with this car is it won't start, at times it sounds like it want's to but it won't fire. The engine had detonation the last three times it was shut off. There was a complete tune-up performed on the car. There was some black sooty deposits on the plugs, there was one plug that even had a little chunk of the center ceramic insulator broke off.With new plugs,distributor cap,rotor & battery it still doesn't start.

I had the same problem recently but replacing the ignition Coil under the distributor (inside) solved the problem. Also replaced the distributor Cap and rotor at the same time.

Have your checked your coils? Never replace parts to try and fix a problem, Find the exact problem and fix it! No spart would be either a bad cam/crank sensor, bad coil pack or ecm fuse!

SOURCE: 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!

How do I test the igniter on 1996 corolla 4afe motor


Start the car and lift up the coil inserts from the spark plugs one by one. By doing so if the engine does not stall that cylinder has a problem. The problem may be due to the defective igniter, fuel injector, high tension cord, weak cylinder compression or a distributor assembly. Some models have distributor less ignition system.
To check the igniter check the 12V at the input lead which is entering the igniter amplifier in the distributor and the output voltage at the spark plug wire. If it is so the igniter is ok. If it is not starting at all or is giving intermittent problem, replace the distributor assembly.

No spark to plugs - toyota 1995 corolla


If there is no spark at all, the problem likely lies in primary circuit of the ignition system. Check the following:-
- Battery health.
- Ignition fuse located in under the dash, finish panel on driver's side.
- Ignition distributor assembly. (Ignition module, ignition coil)
- Ignition switch assembly.
- Security system, if any.

My old Toyota Corolla AE110 4-door sedan engine shutdowns at crusing speed, restarts and shutdowns several times. A new in-tank electric fuel pump was fitted; during test drive the same problem reappears...


Bad ignition coil. Borrow a known good distributor to swap with yours, and if the problem goes away you'll know that's what it was. The ignition coil is inside the distributor body and can be easily replaced.

No start, blown ignition fuse 30 amp.


If it is the AM2 (30A) fuse that is blowing, check the ignition condenser, capacitor, within the ignition assembly. I just removed it and assembled the ignition back together. I am in the process of ordering a new one from Rock Auto for a total of $2.57. It seems to be a common issue. The condenser is actually a capacitor and the issue is that they internally short.

93 corolla 1.8 No start Blown ignition fuse


I had a prolem like this one time a while back. what i did was got the wiring diagram and checked everything that was running through that 30 amp fuse. on the one i was working on it ended up being an injector wire pinched under the valve cover and it didnt short out till the car was driven til it warmed up and expanded after the valve cover gasket was changed. hope this helps!
