Check for 12 volts at the coil with the key on. This system uses a hall effect pick-up which is located in the distributor. Along with this pick-up you have either a (TFI) thick film ignition module or a duraspark ignition module. If you have a TFI it will be mounted on the side of the distributor. A duraspark module will be mounted to the drivers side fender well. In most cases, the pick up in the distributor is the root cause. If you have a TFI module, the pick up and module are usually replaced as a pair. Good Luck.

Lost spark on my 95 F-150. I don't have any spark from coil to dist. cap. How do I verify that coil is bad? I checked resistance from each input terminal to the output terminal - 8K ohms resistance....


these readings are accurate for ok. I suggest you visually inspect the magnetic pick up under the rotor button for crack or heat signs. these have been known to go bad and are easily replaced and I would recommend changing this part out first. good luck... chris

How do I replace a coilpac on a 1998 for f150?


Hi there,

First of all, make sure the ignition switch if off. Then you remove the ignition coil electrical connectors from each coil pack. Then you number or label each spark wire so you can put them back in their original location. Then remove all spark plug wires from ignition coil pack. Then remove the ignition coil pack, four mountain screws and remove coil pack

Hope these help.

There is a ignition module on the fender well,on drivers side,it is most likely bad,not exspensive,and it is most likely the problem,replace it and you will get the spark back.The module is square,and flat,most of the time it is silver color,and has two sets of wires coming from it,that go to two connectors,these connectors are black,If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

It turns over but no spark


I would check the TFI control module on the side of the distributor, the pick up coil in the distributor or the ignition coil itself. Check the coil wire also.

On the side of the distributor there is a ecm or brain to control the spark. If you replace the ecm (electronic control module), this should repair the problem. Make sure you use dielectric grease when installing the new ECM.

1989 ford pick-up,no spark comming from ignition coil. Have changed ignition coil, roterand cap,still no spark. Would you have any suggestions of what to check next?


From a few years experience with these trucks the next most common problem is the ignition module(on the distributor) or the pickup coil. The pickup coil is inside the distributor and it is necessary to remove the distributor and it's shaft to change it.
