Take off the distributor cap, rotor, and it should have a plastic cover that lifts off after removing the rotor. The igniter has 4 wires plugged into it, and 2 screws securing it. Make sure you label the wires so they go back on in the same positions. When you remove the igniter, there are 2 more screws to separate it from a plate that you will re-attach to the new igniter. Good Luck, it's not too hard to do. Countrycurt0

I replaced starter on 1989 f150 5.0 now have no spark


Mike, Check for diagnostic codes. Check fuses/relays,wires/plugs for pinched,damage or corrosion. Could be a lot of things like distributor armature, cap, rotor, stator, ICM, coil,spark plugs,wires, make sure ground is good to distributor. Use the attached forum links,instruction, guides to help diagnose ignition spark problems, Good luck

Starts fine one time and then refuses to start.


If this is a conversion from old points style to HEI modern style, the problem may be the resistance wire is still in the circuit, which should have been removed from the power circuit to the distributor.
If the ignition coil reads 12 volts to its 12 volts terminal, then you should replace the ignition module, furthermore, a pickup coil and sprocket can also be replaced from under the rotor but the distributor needs to be removed and disassembled to get to the pickup coil and sprocket. Some Fords don't need to be removed but do need some disassembling to replace all of its electrical components.

Remove the distributor cao and replace the ignition module. Follow the wires coming from the outside to the inside of the distributor, this is the piece you need to replace.

What is needed for a tune up?


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. For a tune up, you would need to change spark plugs, coils, distributor cap, coil pack, and wires. You would change the air filter and the fuel filter also. Change your pcv valve as well. You can also change all your fluids and filters, such as oil, coolant fluid, and transmission fluid.

The distributor cap and/or the ignition rotor most likely have a crack somewhere and the distributor cap should be replaced along with the ignition rotor. The ignition module could have been damaged as well as the ignition pick-up coil/stator and if replacing the distributor cap and ignition rotor does not solve the problem then the ignition module or the pick-up coil/stator assembly inside of the distributor is also most likely damaged and the distributor will need to be replaced. There is a certain procedure for removing and replacing the distributor, and the ignition timing is not adjustable and it is not set using a timing light or with the engine running, and if you do have to replace the distributor Let me know if you require the procedure to properly remove and replace the distributor or if you require any further assistance.

I have a 1982 lincoln mk v. It wont start. I replaced the Ignition spark module and the coil . I even used starting fluid to see if the problem was fuel. But it still wont start.Please help.


Make sure it is not firing.Since you installed the ignition module,the plugs may be fouled out by fuel.If so,replace the spark plugs,and it will start.If there is no spark,the stater in the distributor will be the most likely problem.The stater is the other part that goes out,if the ignition module doesn`t.I hope this helps,let me know if I can help you any more.
