SOURCE: turns over but won't start

Is the rotor turning in the distributor? If so, most likely the problem is in the madnetic pickup in the distributor. If not, pull the distributor out and see if the gear on the shaft is broken. A good gear on the distributor and the distributor not turning means you need a timing chain!!!

SOURCE: 1989 Dodge Ram D50, no spark. coil may be miswired.

Check the resistance on the coil. the (+) (-) side should be about 10 Ohms resistance and the part that goes out of the coil should be 1-2 ohms resistance. Get yourself an ohmmeter and check it. best way to check is to figure out what wire runs from the computer to the coil and follow the wiring all the way to the coil making sure theres no rips or shorts. If there isnt, then I would splice into the two wires and run two new wires over to the coil. If it still doesnt have spark then its a faulty computer and should be replaced. Good luck

SOURCE: 1984 toyota pickup 22r motor. No fire to distributor

At the cost of the igniter i recommend checking your pickup coil.( The 2 wire sensor in side of your distributor. The The igniter will not allow the coil to fire with out reference form the pickup coil. Coil has primary and secondary resistances. when the primary coil powers up and then pulses off, this cause a high voltage due to magnetic degeneration. Check the coils primary and secondary resitances along with the air gap in the pickup coil, and also check the resitances on the pickup coil. If i am right your igniter will be okay.Get a good manual for you truck, It will save you money down the road.
Toyota does not have at test proseger for the ingiter.

Also check the wires in between the pickup coil and the igniter.
I hope this helped.

You can have the coil and module tested at most auto parts stores. The module provides the ground signal to the coil. It could also be the pickup coil in the bottom of the distributor.

4x4 v8 1998 dodge truck won't start


well if ur not getting spark and u changed all of the ignition components lets think about the computer in order for the ignition to work you have crankshaft position sensor that fires the fuel injectors and the spark change that and if still nothing then change the camshaft postion sensor that sensor tells the computer that the 1 piston has came all the way up and it tells the crankshaft sensor to do its thing

My 1986 dodge 600 won't start..the engine is cranking and gas is getting in to it but I can't get a spark..I also have changed the coil n still not gettin a spark..


i assume you have checked to make sure that the distributor is turn while cranking.if not then you have a broken timing belt,if it is turning then you probably have a bad pickup coil in the distributor.the wires that come out of the distributor that plug into a harness is part of the pickup coil.if you follow the wires into the distributor it will take you to the pickup coil itself this is the part that needs to be replaced.i trust that you checked to for battery voltage to the coil.

How hard is it to install pickup coil in the distributor of a 2001 dodge ram 1500 pickup.


The pick-up coil/stator is easily replaced in a dodge distributor, and once you have removed the distributor cap and the ignition rotor, then just dis-connect the wire connector from the pick-up coil/stator and lift it straight up and out of the distributor, and the distributor does not have to be removed or dis-assembled to replace the pick-up coil/stator. There are two alignment tabs on the pick-up coil/stator that will match up with the distributor cap when the pick-up coil/stator is properly installed. Here are two images to help assist you.

Its a 91 jeep cherokee 4.0 it turns over but will not start there is no spark. I have replaced the coil but still nothing


No spark usually is caused by coil (which you already replaced), ignition control module, or pickup coil inside the distributor. The coil and the control module are the most common. The control module is located just outside the distributor, you may be able to take it off and have it tested at the dealer. The pickup coil is inside the distributor, unfortunetly there's no way to test them. Also check plugs and wires if they haven't been replaced in awhile.
