ok the coil produces spark the distributer directs it but check and see if the cap and rotor are dirty if the coil is bad or if you have a bad ground
1990 ford truck no spark
It "tells" the computer the rational location of the distributor for spark timing.
its inside the distributor.

It would be helpful to know what year vehicle you have as there are two different ignition systems used on the Chevy Celebrity. Possible reasons for not getting spark in a distributor equipped engine: 1982 to 1986 Distributor cap or rotor defective Reluctor failed Pickup coil failure Ignition module failed wiring or plug in connections loose corroded or failed Coil failed, or coil wire to distributor failed No power to the distributor or coil Possible reasons for not getting spark in a distributor less system: 1987 to 1990 Failed crankshaft position sensor Failed ignition module Failure in wiring or engine computer
The marked # 1 position on the distributor cap faces to the FRONT / CENTER
1-3-4-2 Distributor rotates clockwise.
change distributor cap and rotor
YES! If you have tried a major tune up to include: spark plugs, distributor cap , rotor, wires, and fuel pump and the truck still idles rough and stalls at stop signs then it is the TFI ignition modual located on the side of the distributor.
The ignition module is located in the distributor
could be a bad coil but a distant second is a badly cracked distributor cap.
it can be the rotor or the distributor cap and it could also be a bad electrical conection.(your "feed" wire).
First make sure it's really not getting fire, go to sears and get a spark testor I think they're around $15. If it's really not getting spark to any of the cylinders, check the coil wire, then the coil, then the distributor cap and rotor. what is it doing ?? Is it fluding from too much nfuel when cranking over id there any spark? what do the plugs look like.
check the ignition coil make sure theres power going to it ,and coming out of it. check the ground conection.
The left bank is 1,3,5,7 and the right bank is 2,4,6,8. The distributor turns clockwise.
I'd know more if you told me its location, but it is probably the spark coil. Is there a thick wire running from the coil to the distributor, and from there thick spark wires running to each cylinder?
On the front of the engine, where the spark plug wires go, under a black plastic snap off cover.
being a 1990 it may have a distributorles ign, find one of the spark plugs,and follow one of the wires back to the end. if it goes to a small black box, then it is a distributorles. There is no distributor. It has coil packs located underneath the front exhaust manifold.
distirbuitor, wires; most likley. Just go through the whole ignition system.
The spark plug firing order is ( 1 - 5 - 3 - 6 - 2 - 4 ) The distributor rotor turns clockwise The marked # 1 position on the distributor cap faces AWAY from the engine The engine cylinders are numbered : 1 to 6 , from front to rear
I can think of three things. it could be a bad distributor cap and or the rotor. the wire going from the coil to the distributor cap could be bad. the coil itself could be bad. check the wire running from the coil to the cap and make sure its properly seated, that's usually what happens to me after some hard wheeling in mine.
Replace the spark plugs, wires, distributor cap and spark plug wires.Chances are your vehicle is in need of a good tune-up. Mark adjust your timing
there is none
