Welcome to Fixya

Do a test for spark at the plugs. Remove one of the plug wires from a plug and hold it near grounded metal. (If the plug end has a long insulated shroud, you may have to improvise to get ground close enough to the end of the wire.) Have someone crank the engine while you watch for spark. If you get an 1/8" or so of spark, that should be enough to fire.Check the distributor cap inside for signs of cracks or carbon arc tracks.Also, check to see that the little carbon contact for the center terminal is in place; without that you can have spark but it won't get to any plug wires.It's rare, but a rotor with an internal short or carbon tracks on the surface can kill the spark before it even gets to the cap.

Thank you for using Fixya!

My truck began running very rich little by little.


FROM WHAT I FOUND OUT ON MY SAME TRK ONLY 94' IS THE DIAPHRAM ON THE FUEL PRESSURE REGUALTOR IS SLUGGISH OR BLOWN. DISCONNECTING THE VACCUM LINE AND PLUGGING THE MANIFORD PORT HAS HELPED UNTIL I AM ABLE TO AFFORD THE REGULATOR. TO HELP CLEAN THE OXY SENSOR, SPEED UP THE IDLE AND DISSCONNECT THE BRAKE BOOSTER VACCUM LINE AT THE ENGINE. THE FRESH AIR WILL SOMEWHAT HELP CLEAN THE SENSOR IF IT IS ABLE TO BE HELPED. I AM TOLD THAT THE OXY SENSOR ON THESE MODELS IS CRIDICAL. JACK

Hello, I have a 1986 nissan 200 sx. it has 2 coils . I side of the spark plugs work but the other side does not and the coil has power to it yet no power to the plugs? Can you help?


take the coils off and go to the parts store and have them tested make sure you number them so that you don't mix the bad on with the good but i'm sure you have a bad coil.
