Open you distributor cap and dry the water out. it got wet. It's no big, it just happens. A can of distributor cap spray(at your auto parts store), or a can of compressed air(any office store(much cheaper)), will get rid of the water or moisture. hope this helps

Engine stopped. I have no spark getting to the plugs. Could the little box on the side of the distributer be the problem?

The little box (Ignition Module) could be the problem. Auto Zone can test those and they do it for free.
Could also be the coil, no power to the coil...

Ther is no spark at the spark plugs, what are likly causes.

check fuses. The coil should get 12V with IGN key in run position. Check the pickup module inside the distributer and see that the shaft turns when engine is cranked. You may need a new ign module.If spark is good at the coil, the plugs/wires are at fault.

1984 Ford Bronco II new distributor cap, rotor, wires, plugs, control module, coil, starter, alternator, carburator, fuel pump. Put new control module on yesterday had spark for a little while, but now no...

Low battery voltage can keep the coil / ignition control from firing. You need a good 12V to get everything working right. Get a full battery charge and try again. It might also be flodded by now.

There is no test for module in distributor, but they often cause this kind of problem. Also while in there, check the pickup coil wires to make sure they are intact.

Problem is I NEED HELP!!! I have an 85 merc. cougar that started losing power and stalling out of no where.At first I thought there might be a fuel problem, i.e. pump, filter etc.I had afterall been...

well i am just a shade tree michanic that relies on common sense and some experance. now is there spark at the coil? you will need to pull coil wire off distributor and lay it close enought to where you unpluged it to see if there is spark from coil to distributer, it should be a bluish spark, if its yellowish that means its weak and might be the problem, you will have to turn engine over to do this. don't hold on to coil wire when you do this, if there is spark it will knock you on your ****. coils do this, work when cold, get hot loose power. also ford motor co. uses a lot of fuseable links most are located around the battery. witch is on the side that was hit, consentrate around there. you can chk. fuseable links, they will have wire in wire out with a round part in middle thats the fuse, grab each wire and pull if its burnt it will pull apart. now if by chance it would start and run for a while and then quit that would be the time to chk. spark. now it could still be ignition module but i believe you need to see if you got fire from coil first. now if your sure you got fire from coil, here is a easy way to chk. module, find and old spark plug, any plug you know is good, pull a plug wire off engine prefer #1 but don't matter and plug in that old plug and ground to anything metal and turn over engine, got spark? good module, no spark bad module. its best to do this after it has run, because modules are like coils may work cold and hot will not. now if you can't do all this, your only recourse is to take coil and distributer module off and take have tested at a auto parts store like autozone. i tried to cover as much as i can, if you need more answers, i'll be glade to help as much as i can. GOOD LUCK.
