It's different for different types of ignition systems. Some of the self-timing systems need to have a jumper in place before you can change the timing. Some operate from a sensor on the cam or crankshaft, some still use a distributor with a star wheel and pickup coil to drive the ignition control system. Unfortunately, there is no single way to tell you how to set the timing but you should be able to detect a spark by pulling a single sparkplug wire and connect it to a spare sparkplug. Then crank the engine while someone watches the sparkplug for a good strong spark. If you don't get a spark, many of the newer vehicles have self diagnostics that will give you information regarding what is actually wrong. If yours is one of them, use a code scanner to get information about the ignition, emissions and injection systems. It's difficult to know what to tell you without knowing more about the specific vehicle.
The carpentry term (leveling or sealing with wood strips) is normally spelled "furring" but "firring" is a variant spelling.
If a 6 cylinder - 1,5,3,6,2,4 If a 8 cylinder - 1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2 Check the manual to make sure.
check the pickup coil. that was the prob
Check the coil, rotor, condenser, distributor cap, and coil wire.
No ignition-fire en coil
Check coil! Check coil!
The coil is inside. Check to see if the filter is dirty as well. To clean the coil you must remove the front panel to the evap coil. If you have a flat coil you must slide the coil out to clean it. If you have an A coil, take off the plate on the front of the coil and you should be able to visually inspect the coil. It is important that you do not mash the dirt into the coil fins.
The ignition coil is really easy to check. To check the ignition coil spin the engine over at around 250 RPM and watch for a spark in the tester window.
There are four steps on how to check a coil in a 185 Suzuki 4 wheeler. One way to check the coil in a 185 Suzuki 4 wheeler is by purchasing a OHM meter.
Check your coil with an inline spark tester. If no spark to the distributor check for power to the coil. If power to the coil but no spark then coil is bad. If coil is sparking the problem is in the distributor. If no power to the coil trace back the wiring to the power source (battery voltage) Check the points to make sure they're gaped properly & not burned or corroded. Check cap & rotor while you're in there also. while the cap is off turn it over and check to see if the rotor (shaft) is turning.
A coil pack can be checked for continuity and resistance with an ohm meter. But for heat or load failure the only way to check a coil pack is to replace it.
Check your Ground (negative) cable to the block. Also check the grounding of the coil to the block.
It sounds like the Camry has lost power to the coil. Check the wiring from the coil to the power, and check the coils ground circuit. Either of these can cause the problem.
No input voltage to the coil or the coil is bad. Check the distributor for issues and the wires.
Check the ignition control module (autozone) and check coil resistance. After that not sure I have same problem with new icm and new coil.
auto zone will check your codes for FREE. if you have a bad coil pack they will tell you.
Check the coil, coil wire, rotor, and distributor cap.
If the reason you want to check the coils is because of a check engine misfire code swap the coil with a coil from another cylinder, clear the codes, drive if the check engine light comes back on see if the code follows the coil you moved. If so replace the coil.
advanced auto parts web site has the diagrams for the firring order for GMC Safari vans. firring order is 1,6,5,4,3,2
check the pick up coil on the left side cover of the engine they have a stator and a little box that's the pickup coil check if its damage or the ignition coil
You can check it by connecting one wire from the coil to any ground and one wire from the coil to 12 volts, the clutch coil will energize and pull the front hub to the clutch surface.........
Check the coil, as that is where the spark comes from.
first i would check your coil, if its good, check your ignition switch.
Check rotor check that distributor is rotating
