Question about 1986 Toyota Tercel
My 86 tercel station wagon died on the road, there is positive current between the coil and ground, both on the positive and negative pole, but as I rev the starter nothing happens, I get no current to the distributor at all. I tried another coil and still no result so coil is fine. Friends tell me it has to be the ignitor, which I guess I could check, but where is it?? It is not on the firewall, as on some models. My dis sits on the engine block and the coil hangs vertically on the wheel housing, drivers side, right behind the battery and in front of the fuel filter, but I cannot find the ignitor.
It might be that the contact point within your distributor has worn out. you may have to just replace that.
