Question about Ford E-250

1 Answer

Have a 1995 E250 Pickup, 5.8 L Engine. No fire. While cranking no fire at plugs or out of the distributor. Checked module. Module good. Replaced coil. When checking voltage thru and to coil, voltage at wires 2 & 3 at module - no voltage at green wire with white stripe no. 1. Any clues as to what my problem here is - I dont have a wiring diagram and the manual from Haines doesnt give any answers.

If the coil and ignition module are good then check/replace the ignition switch.

Car won't cranks but won't fire.Had coi and ignition module checked both good. Bought the pickup coil and still won't start! Why won't it start?

You need to check for power with a test light to the distributor components.Check for power at bat terminal while cranking.. I would replace the module and coil, plenty of them at the salvage yard.

I have no fire in my spark plug wires and i'v replaced everything.

Try disconnecting the four wire connector at the distributor,jumper terminals "A" and "C"(black to green) on the distributor side. this eliminates the ESC module and lets you deal with basic HEI. ohm the pickup coil 500-1500 ohms.use an ac volt meter white wire and green wire in the dist.,crank the least .5 vac,usually about 1volt.low voltage with a good pickup means a weak magnet.New cap& rotor? I've seen rotors burn thru...they look fine but will arc down to the advance weights.Make sure you have at least 9v at the big pink wire while cranking.disconnect any aftermarket tach,unplug the factory tach at the cap...If you installed a hi output coil,they are tough on ignition modules...Some things to try.

Runs normally, no check lights. Occasionally dies, will not restart or start only after long shut-down period. During period of "non-start", no spark/fire at plugs, distributor, or coil.

This unit has a pickup in the distributor that tells the coil when to fire. Check to see if you have power at the coil. If yes,connect a test light to the ground side of the coil and have an assistant crank the engine.The test light should flash on and off. If not, you have a problem inside the distributor. The pickup coil or the ignition module are at fault. Good Luck
