No spark at plug

Asked by Oct 31, 2016 at 06:34 PM about the 1998 Nissan Frontier 2 Dr XE Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My ignition coil has a spark. Installed new dist. cap
and rotor still no spark at plug or at the top of the
cap. The spark from the coil won't reach more than
1/8 of an inch max. Weak coil?

1/8" is good. Remove distributor cap to see if the distributor shaft rotates, it may be stripped.

It's rotating

What happened was I dumped the clutch and killed it and it hasn't started since. Think it could have jumped time or something?

It would not affect not having spark at the plugs. If there's no spark at the pugs it won't start no matter what, unless there is spark and you thought it wasn't strong enough then do a compression test
