THERE IS A STATOR IN THE DISTRIBUTOR, THIS IS THE SAME AS A CRANK SENSOR, HAVE YOU CHANGED IT?

Well.... I do not see the ignition module listed, which is mounted inside the distributor mentioned yet. Have you replaced it and just not listed it? The crank sensor could be too.....I just can't imagine having to cut a wiring harness. Never had to before... keep trying other things.

SOURCE: 85 dodge 360 no spark replaced, coil , ign switch,

I would suspect the ignition control if you have already replaced all that stuff. I personally would replace it with an MSD ignition for better running and fuel mileage, but the ignition module should be a whole lot cheaper.

you need to check the fuel pressure,and did you mean you replaced the distributor or just the rotor because inside the distributor is a pickup plate that some times causes this also 02 sensor can cause this.is your check engine light on if so go to chain auto parts store they usually read your codes for free.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.
The black and yellow wire is usually the wire from the coil to the ECM and the black one with the white tracer is usually the wire going to the coil. (To the Coil Resistor if you have one other wise to the Negative connection on the top of the coil.) The 1981 and before EA81's have a coil resistor and the 1982 and up EA81's do not have a coil resistor.
Just for grins... lift off the distributor cap and see if the distributor is being rotated. If you use the starter and the distributor is not turning you may have a broken timing belt.

One question: "Does yours have the 6 pin HEI?"
If so and you have an aftermarket alarm system find the valet switch under the dash and press that to see if you get spark. Otherwise you should have power at pin 1 of the HEI module connector. Also on the HEI with the 6 pin connector disconnected you should read resistance reading pin 1 to the distributor base. No resistance at pin 1 = bad HEI.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Engine stopped. I have no spark getting to the plugs. Could the little box on the side of the distributer be the problem?


The little box (Ignition Module) could be the problem. Auto Zone can test those and they do it for free.
Could also be the coil, no power to the coil...

Cant find the coils


If you can find the spark plugs, you can find the coils. If you cant, then pay someone that knows what they are doing.

1988 Subaru GL Wagon Cranks but won't start


Before you change ECM, You must make sure you have spark from plugs..If not pull the distributer it tends to shatter internally which the eye cannot tell unless opened properly.

No fire


Coil pack. Distributer. Spark plugs. And spark plug wires are all things that deal with the firings of the motor. the distributer cap and rotor may also be bad.
