I have an 1982 sportster 1000 that only fires when it wants to. Where should I start diagnosing it? It does have power to the coil right now, but sometimes it doesnt.

Find out what your coil voltage is and tests and see if you're getting the right amount of voltage to the coil and from the coil when it's on and if you're going to need it when it's off the first thing you need is a wiring schematic for 1982 sportster or you could just replace the wires if there be original wires and the coil packs if the be

My 72 sportster is getting power to the coil but no power to the terminal leading to the points. Any advice?

Well, power only comes in from one side of the coil and if the points are closed, your meter will not read voltage on the other side. Make sure the points are open when checking for voltage.

To check the coil's primary circuit. Take all wires loose from the small terminals at either end of the coil. Using a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter), put the meter in OHMS, R times 1 scale. Connect one meter lead to each terminal of the coil, make no difference which one goes where. The meter should read between 5 and 6 ohms of resistance. If it reads "Infinite" the coil is open and if it read "Zero" the coil's primary circuit is shorted.

The easy way to test the coil is put a spark plug in the plug wire and lay it on the head. Make sure it has a good ground. Turn the engine over until the points are closed. Turn on the ignition switch and use something to open the point. Each time you open the points, you should see a spark at the plug. If not, you've probably got a bad coil.

Good Luck

I'm not getting a spark out of any of my spark plugs nor the coil what do I do?

First check that there is voltage coming into the ignition system. If not check the fuse. If there is voltage then the possiblity are bad ignition coil, bad igntion module, or pick up coil. First make sure the ignition system is getting power the next like cause would be a bad ignition coil. the least likely is a bad pick up coil.

No spark runns fine then loses spark wait 10 minutes starts

The spark plugs receives power to spark from coil pack.Check the power at the coil pack and also check the voltage at the coil pack with meter.If the coil pack shows proper power as well as voltage then its fault in spark plugs.Otherwise its faulty coil pack.The coil pack receives power from also check the voltage of the battery it should be exact 12 volt.
If the battery shows low voltage then the battery needs to be re-charged.
Then check out.

Not getting spark. Changed coil - still no spark.

Disconnect the small wires on either side of the spark plug wire tower. Then, turn the switch on and check the wires for voltage. If you don't have any voltage, check the "Run/Stop" switch. The voltage for the "Run/Stop" switch comes straight from the "ignition" circuit breaker under the seat. The voltage to the circuit breaker comes directly from the ignition switch. The voltage for the ignition switch comes directly from the battery.

If you have voltage to the coil but still no spark, it sounds like your timer/pickup is bad on your engine. It is located under the small round plate on the right side of your engine camchest cover.

1992 plymouth vayager no spark from coil

Voltage is applied across the coil primary only in brief pulses too short to light the typical troubleshooting light. The 2 seconds you are seeing it light is just before the coil is hit with pulses. After that brief span, voltage is applied and removed too quickly to detect that with a light.
 If you are getting no spark, it is because this rapid application and removal of the voltage isn't happening at all. This can be caused by a failed ignition module or ECU. In your engine, there may also be a pulse transformer in the distributor that supplies signal to the coil instead of the pulse coming from the ECU. Pulse coils will normally measure from 6,000-12,000 ohms if they are still OK.

Sounds like the coil is getting too much power sent to it or the power is spiking beyond it acceptable rating. If you have a voltage gage, test the power coming into the coil with the key in the on (running) possition. 92 4L engines can have a few differnt coil types (distributerless, conventional, high energy, ect...) check your ranger handbook for the proper voltage for your type. If the power is right, then have someone crank the engine over and see if the power spikes at all (the voltage read should stay the same or drop slightly durring cranking). If any of the voltage reads incorrect, then you would need to trace the culprate down and replace that electical componant. Most of the time, I find that the problem is with the condenser, but it is possable that anything in that electical circut could cause a power fluctuation.

No spark at spark plugs

Check to see that voltage is getting from the coil to the distributor and then to the spark plugs. You can use a VOM or Test Light (whatever you used to check power to the coil) to determine where you are losing spark.
Good luck.
