Question about 1992 Toyota Celica

Cranks but wont start

I have a friend with a 92 Gt coupe. He put over 900 dollars into the ignition components when it would not start before but then we messed around with the wires running into the firewall a little and it fired right up. Now he ishaving the same problem, the car just doesnt have any spark. Plugs are good, fuel is getting to the engine it just wont fire. If anyone has any clue what could be wrong please let me know. All fuses good, as well as all ignition components, he tried them on his dads vehicle and ohms tested everything and it was all good.

    1992 celica 124,000 miles my wife drove it to work it ran great with no problems she parked it shut it off went in to work. At the end of the day she went to start it and it just cranks but it won't start. She got a jump (thinking it was a dead battery), but she said it was cranking before she got the jump da! She was not able to get it to start up only crank. It has no spark at the plugs.

    Is this common ? What is the next step I should do?

Did you check the coil?
It's a $45 to $46 item any more and your getting ripped off.
It's behind the dis-cap .
You need to remove the whole distributer and unscrew it from the bottom 4 phillip head screws hold it in not a big deal! Just remember to put the distributer back the same way it went in and DON'T CRANK THE ENGINE WITH THE DISTRIBER OUT!!! I like to take a picture of the distuber with the cap off before I remove it so I will remiber how it was before I took it out and I can put it back in the same way.Also mark the flang of the distuber and the engine block with a marker so you won't mess up the timing.Take your time not a big deal and don't pay ths silly internet site the $ for the solition!!!!!

Not turning over means that you try to start it and get NOTHING. If the engine cranks and wont start that is a different issue.

If the fuel pump is'nt running then it's a bad relay or blown fuse. If the pump is running then it could be a few things, a bad timing belt, bad cam sensor, bad crankshaft sensor, could be the timing is off which you can adjust with the distributor, or it could be a bad o2 sensor or MAP sensor.

Are you sure that there is no spark, have you checked with a timing light? Are the wires on the coil connected correctly? Is the ignition module plugged in correctly and are all the wires on the distributor tight and correctly located? Try another ignition module from a system that is known to be working.
