The simplest and least expensive tester is the neon 2-wire 0-500 volt tester. Put one of the leads on a ground reference (box screws, neutral side of a plug, neutral or white wire, etc.) and the other lead on the hot wire (hot side of a plug, black or red wire, etc.) If the neon light glows, then you have voltage at the outlet, as is the case here. Another handy device to have around is the plug tester. Just plug this device into a receptacle, and it will not only tell you if there is voltage present, but also if it is wired correctly (or not!). Just follow the codes on the tester to determine the situation. The type of meter that most electricians will use is the digital multi-meter. These come in various brand names, price ranges and quality, and the old adage, "you get what you pay for" is the best advice to follow here.

I would check compression, spark, and fuel. It sounds like you may have low compression and the engine seems to not keep up to the load put on it. If you check the three things I listed it will put you in the right direction. Compression testers and spark testers are available at any local auto parts store. Afetr checking these let me know what you have found and we can go from there. Good luck!

How to test ignition module


There are plenty of spark testers on the market, if you want a quick check remove the spark plug, use a new plug with twice the plug gap 0.6mm earth against the cylinder ( away from the opem plug hole ) crank the engine at normal starting speed, if there is a spark the unit is probably fine.

I have an alltest brainmaster 3210 .I have 23080 & 23081 .do I need another cable ?to use on a 1987 gmc. also would like to find a user manual for the 3210 . thank you pat


Model 3210 is not compatible with your vehicle. You would need a newer Model Tester, and the 23104 adapter. 3257, 3258, or Allscan would be compatible with your 1987 GM Vehicle. Most other competitors testers of the same vintage were more expensive, but time is a great equalizer in the used market.GM Data streams changed every year and required constant updating by the scan tool manufacturers. Starting in 1996 with OBDII, testers became easier to use and more generic, however it can still difficult to keep of with the proprietary data streams.

Check for spark. Maybe a crankshaft position sensor is bad or a module.

Secondary Spark Test This spark tester looks just like a spark plug, attach the clip to ground and crank the engine to check for spark 91052p10.jpg
This spark tester has an adjustable air-gap for measuring spark strength and testing different voltage ignition systems 91052p11.jpg
Attach the clip to ground and crank the engine to check for spark 91052p12.jpg
This spark tester is the easiest to use just place it on a plug wire and the spark voltage is detected and the bulb on the top will flash with each pulse 91052p10.jpg
The best way to perform this procedure is to use a spark tester (available at most automotive parts stores). Three types of spark testers are commonly available. The Neon Bulb type is connected to the spark plug wire and flashes with each ignition pulse. The Air Gap type must be adjusted to the individual spark plug gap specified for the engine. The last type of spark plug tester looks like a spark plug with a grounding clip on the side, but there is no side electrode for the spark to jump to. The last two types of testers allows the user to not only detect the presence of spark, but also the intensity (orange/yellow is weak, blue is strong).
  1. Disconnect a spark plug wire at the spark plug end.
  2. Connect the plug wire to the spark tester and ground the tester to an appropriate location on the engine.
  3. Crank the engine and check for spark at the tester.
  4. If spark exists at the tester, the ignition system is functioning properly.
  5. If spark does not exist at the spark plug wire, perform diagnosis of the ignition system using individual component diagnosis procedures.

Ignition Coil Testing
  1. Remove suspect coil.
  2. Disable fuel pump by disconnecting inertia switch electrical connector.
  3. Reconnect the ignition coil electrical connector to the coil.
  4. Install spark tester 303-D307 (D81P-6666-A) or the equivalent.
  5. Crank engine while observing the tester.
  6. If a blue-white spark is not observed replace coil.

Removal & Installation To Remove:
  1. Remove the air cleaner outlet pipe if interfering.
  2. Disconnect the connector from the ignition coil. coilconn.gif

  3. Remove the bolt from the ignition coil. coilbolt.gif

  4. Remove the ignition coil on plug.
To Install:
  1. Install ignition coil on spark plug.
  2. Install ignition coil bolt. Tighten to 10 Nm (89 in. lbs.). coilbolt.gif

  3. Reconnect the ignition coil electrical connector. coilbolt.gif

  4. Install the air cleaner outlet pipe if removed earlier.
