Try your battery cable.. could be loose

Jamie Sink-Brown

Battery cables are good. It cracks but does not start. Not getting any spark, changed out plugs and wires a few weeks ago so I changed out distributor cap and coil but still no luck


Not the rotor? The rotor under the cap will get a burn threw to ground causing a no spark. The other 2 things that may be your problem is the Ignition Control Module or the coil pickup both under the distributor cap. The coil pick-up has two wires running to it, slightly pull on them, usually one breaks. The distributor has to come out for replacement. ECM can be tested at Auto-Zone, but on this module make sure you put the dialectic grease under it before reinstalling it.
