1986 Van will not start.

Recently took my 86 van for a drive. Stopped to pick up groceries came out to go and my van will only turn over...will not start. Mechanic friend said it was the coil which I replaced but to no avail. He says there is current to the coil but no spark. What gives?

Have the mechanic remove the distributor,and replace the pick up coil in the distributor.These models are bad for this to go out.I assume the fuel pump has enough pressure?and it is working?Also,it is possible for the ignition coil to have went out,but the pick up coil is more likely.If I can help,let me know.

86 e150 w/FI 5.0. no power to fuel pump system.


If pump does not work when power is directly applied, then pump will need to be replaced. Have you tested the power from the fuel pump relay?
