I don’t know if you have done anything yet, But I would try the computer, I just picked one up for my 88 ranger, Believe it or not if you have an AutoZone near by, But it was pretty reasonable, They are remand and you have turn in your old one for a core.

Check that the wiring harness to the coils is getting 12v, this will confirm if the pcm is sending a signal for the sparks to fire. Check the ignition coil is sending spark to the plugs with a spark plug tester.

Won't start no spark


Check all your fuses, under the hood and at the fuse panel for ign fuse or ecm fuse and make sure they are'nt blown, then check for power to ign module which is under the coil paks, should be pink wire. good luck...sounds like maybe your ign module or crank sensor may have gone bad.

Ther is no spark at the spark plugs, what are likly causes.


check fuses. The coil should get 12V with IGN key in run position. Check the pickup module inside the distributer and see that the shaft turns when engine is cranked. You may need a new ign module.If spark is good at the coil, the plugs/wires are at fault.

What size engine do you have. Your vehicle should have one coil for each spark plug,no? What coil are we speaking of?

No start on old gasoline forklift engine.


most likely the ign switch is ok if you are getting spark. so you have a hot spark at coil and weak fire at plugs? if you have a test light check the positive side of coil for power when turning key on and cranking. if it is dropping power on positive side then ign switch could be bad. can "hotwire" coil by jumping a wire to positive side of coil to pos of battery this will eliminate ign switch.

'87 ford van w/302 just died,no spark,replaced ign.mod. &ign.coil.still no spark.


mark the distributor and pull it out, turn the key on.with module wires connected, ground the dist. body and spin the gear, with the cap off, you should hear a light spark or tick in the distribtor, if not the pickup in the dist. is bad. a rebuilt distributor is probably cheaper than the pickup alone.
