Lost all power all at once
I was accelerating onto a freeway when the engine stopped producing power just like someone had turned the key off. No spitting or sputtering or anything, just dead. It's a 13B and I have fuel from the pump - cannot be certain about pressure, but if volume is any indicator, it's good. I have about 1 1/2 Ohms of resistance in each of the coils and with the key on, I have 12V on both sides of them. I tried to get a spark by pulling one of the top spark plug wires off the plug and sticking a screwdriver in the end of it before propping it about 3/16" away from the fuel injection air intake. I did not observe a spark when I turned the engine over so I tried repositioning it to no avail. What's next, should I take the ignitors off the side of the distributor and test them? Any suggestions? Has anyone had a similar problem?
I took the ignitors out and tested them with the manual's procedure, one good, one not so good! Does anybody have an ignitor for an '85 RX-7 w/13B engine? Or two (it might be a good thing to have a spare)?
Found some ignitors, thanks!
