Use a little sand paper and clean the brass tongs inside the distrubtor, Might check your pick-up coil while you have distrubtor cap off. If cap is very bad just replace, Good luck this should fix your problem.

How to replace a distributor


disconnect the cable from the negative battry terminal. position the engine with number one cylinder at TDC on the compression stroke this mean you can take number one spark plug out with the engine cool place your thumb over the spark hole and have some one turn the engine over and and feel the presure by your thumb when you feel pressure stop turning engine take the distributor cap and make sure the rotor is pointing to number one spark wire in distributor cap if not you may have to turn the engine a little with your hand apply a paint mark on the edge of the distributor body directly below the rotor tip. also make a mark on the distributor base to the engine to ensure the distributor can be re-installed in exactly the same position as originally installed disconnected the coil wires from the distributor cap electrical connector, spark plug wires from the spark plugs remove the distributor hold-down bolt and pull out the distributor.

Have a 2004 rendezvous and I get fuel but little spark to the plugs


If you have any spark at the plugs it will not be the anti-theft system. I would be looking at a failed coil/s and or distributor ignition module.. Run fault codes to check for other faults that limit the spark voltage.

If there is no spark to the plugs, you may have inadvertently blown a fuse for the ignition system when changing other parts. Check the fuses in the box under the dash or under the bonnet. Also have a look and make sure the little carbon brush pickup hasn't fallen out of the distributor cap. Its the little black thing in the middle inside of the cap. It is spring loaded and sometimes can fall out.

2000 Chevy Astro; power to distributor from the coil, but no power out the distributor. New rotar cap, magnetic switch and distributor and ignition control module, but still won't turn over. Help!


check if fire at the end of spark plug wire with HEI spark plug tester.It need 25000 volts to jump the tester. If ok check for fuel injectors by pouring a little fuel inside intake .

How to set the timing on a 1982 olds 98


Hi: 1st thing to do is pull #1 Spark Plug AND before you Crank The Engine PULL COIL WIRE so your car does'nt Start During Your ommpression Test.Once you have commpression coming out #1 Spark Hole.Then follow the #1 Spark Plug Wire up to the Distributor Cap-Now Mark that #1 Wire with a Marker ,Sting any Way you'll know where it is on your Distributor.Now PULL Distributor Cap and see where the Rotor Is,It should be Pointing toward that #1 Spark Plug Wire. Could be a Little Past.. If all This Lines up and Tested Out right,Then ALL you Need to Do is Clean and Mark Your Timing to What you Car is in Time, Could be TDC (TOP DEAD CENTER) or 4-8 Degrees BTDC (Before Top Dead Center.And then put coil wire in and attach your timing light to #1 Wire And Loosen the Distributor Hold Down Bracket Under Distributor.Where You Still have a Little Resistance to Move it Clock or Counter Clock Wise. Start the vehice and Slowly Move the Whole Disributor Until You Get The Timing Light At the Timing Mark you Made. Thats It. Hope this Helps You Out. From The WYOCWBOY

My truck is a 1996 1/2ton there is gas getting to the engine and there is spark in the spark plugs we fixed the distributor cap and checked all the spark plug wires, the truck will turn over but it will...


Hmm, This sounds like a timing problem.

Best way to do this easily is that:

Take out the #1 spark plug crank/tap motor over until air comes out of spark plug hole--compression stroke(this is "TDC"---Top Dead Center)

Remove Distrubutor cap and check and see if rotor points to #1 spark plug wire on cap----if not move the #1 spark plug wire to that position on cap---then install rest of spark plug wires according to the firing order from the #1 plug wire.

Install #1 spark plug and start truck---you may have to rotate distributor a little bit to get best performance.

I had the same problem with my 85 cj7 this week, I relpaced the ignition control module, plugs, wires, cap, rotor and the the coil; still had no fire to plugs. the problem turned out to be my distributor, replaced it today and she fired right up. Most likely it was the pick up module in the distributor that went bad.
