If the timing belt is broken, the distributor will not turn. Make sure the rotor is turning when the engine is cranking.

Have you had the battery check and when you say doesnt get fire does it attempt to start at all?

Distributor not firing


We need to know what you mean by "proper power". There is a wire from the distributor to the coil which carries 12 volts and another from the coil to the distributor that carries upwards of 16 000 volts. The first is a thin one which allows the points to fire the coil, the other is the thicker high tension wire that comes from the coil to be distributed to the plugs.
If you have fire on the high tension wire but no fire on any of the plug wires, you have either a bad rotor or a cracked distributor cap or even the little carbon thingamajig inside the distributor cap might be broken or missing.
If your truck has a points ignition, you might have a bad condenser (capacitor) or the points are not set to the right specification (about 16 to 18 thou)
Check that the points are not burnt, which will also indicate a bad condenser.
You might reason that there is noting wrong with the points or condenser, but you can still get a nice spark which looks good, but is not sufficient to do the job.
The distributor cap might have a crack that you can't see with the eye, but a small crack will give you endless headaches.
Replacing the whole distributor is a very very very last fix.

No fire in coil pack.


Was the timing chain damaged ?
Did you have spark from the coil before you replaced the other parts ?
Do you have battery voltage on the positive side of the coil with the key on and in crank mode ?
Is the coil wire not sparking, or are you not getting spark at the plugs ?
Is the distributor rotor turning when you crank the engine ?

I have a 2000 Stratus v-6 that will not start. It's turns over but doesn't fire. Fuel pump is okay. Could this be a sensor or distributor issue? Dealer's shop said they didn't see any codes while they had...


Check for fire from the coil to the spark plugs with an inline spark tester. If no fire, then disconnect the plug to coil and with volt tester check for power to coil. If you have power to coil then replace coil on engine. Hope this will help you.

1997 jeep grand cheerkee tunes over but won,t start no fire from coil to distributor


So you have B+ to coil but no B+ from coil to distributor. Sounds like the ignition module.
Its not triggering coil to fire . Double check it with a test light at negative side of coil and then to ground.crank the vehicle if light flickers its ok if not its your culprit.
Should light flicker then test its the wires from coil to distributor, distributor , rotor and plug wires.
Honestly if the light flickers your not losing anything by replaceing the items from the coil tower to the plugs.
