Not knowing what vehicle its on....i can only give u some broad things to look for. First check to see if u have 12v power with the key on going to your coil. You also may want to check the hall effect sensor in the distributor it tells the coil to fire. hope that might help u some.

all the spark plug wires go to the distributor.

hi there if i remember the distributor is troublesome and you have to replace the whole thing

User Avatar

I would replace the ignition control module that's in the distributor.

It depends a little on what type of engine you have. Look under the hood for your spark plug wires. The single component that all of them connect to (not the spark plugs), is the distributor cap. Underneath it is the distributor.

I would start with replacing the spark plug wires and spark plugs (if you did not do that for a while). If does not help check the coils or distributor depending on what you have.

All of the spark plug wires go to the distributor. Just follow the wires and you will see the distributor.

follow all the spark plug wires

The main components to check are the battery, coil, the distributor, its cap and rotor and the associated wires from the coil to the distributor and from the distributor to the spark plugs. Distributor is on the front right side.

Sorry, the 1992 B'mers all have computer controlled ignition. There is no distributor. However, there are coils on top of each spark plug that serve the function of providing spark energy (which is what the single distributor used to do).

My 93 camry has no power from the distributor to the spark plugs. The car unable to start.

Unplug all the spark plug wires. then loosen the screws holding the distributor on, remove it, put the new one on and screw it in, then replace the spark plug wires

distributes the spark from the coil to the spark plugs

User Avatar

That's not really what's going on. The coil makes the spark, the distributor distributes the spark to the correct plug. If the distributor is not in the correct position, the spark does not go to the correct plug, or goes to the correct plug at the wrong time.

User Avatar

Yes, if the spark plug wires can be connected to the distributor and works.

Distributor Advance is the wrong term; the Distributor Advance system implies actually moving the timing components of the distributor to control timing of spark in the engine (A Vacuum Advance, is an example of this). Modern controls use computer spark mapping, through learned routines or factory set timing models to control the spark based on these tables, through the computer. In all essence it is the computer that controls all spark functions.

AnswerIf there is no spark I would say its the distributor.AnswerBefore condemning the distributor, check for spark from the coil. If no spark check the crankshaft position sensor.

Those are all misfire codes. The common cause would be spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, and rotor.

1993 Ford Escort 1.9 Liter Engine Spark Plug to Distributor Cap Wire Order: Looking at the engine from the front of the car, the distributor cap is to the right of the engine (or on the driver's side of the car looking from the front of the car. The spark plug wires come from each spark plug and terminate on the distributor cap. They plug in to the distributor cap. Looking at the engine from the front of the car, the spark plugs (left to right) are identified as spark plug "A", spark plug "B", spark plug "C" and spark plug "D". "A" wire comes from the "A" spark plug to the 4th (right most) hole on the distributor cap; "B" wire comes from the "B" spark plug to the 3rd (2nd right most) hole on the distributor cap; "C" wire comes from the "C" spark plug to the 2nd (left most) hole on the distributor cap and the "D" wire comes from the "D" spark plug to the left most hole on the distributor cap.

On the 4.9 L ( 300 cubic inch ) straight 6 cylinder engine , the distributor is on the drivers side of the engine - the distributor cap is on top of the distributor On the V8 engines , the distributor is located on top of the engine at the front , the distributor cap is on top of the distributor Where one end of the spark plug wires all connect , the other ends go to each spark plug

User Avatar

It is in the very back of the engine. Just follow the spark plug wires from the spark plugs and they will go to the top of the Distributor. That will be the distributor cap that the wires are in.

4.3? Follow the spark plug wires from the spark plugs, they will lead you right to the distributor.

User Avatar

Check the distributor and spark plug wires.

Remove all spark plugs, turn the engine by hand and get the #1 spark plug at TDC on the compression stroke. Install the distributor so the rotor is pointing to the # 1 plug position on distributor cap. Start the engine and set the time it with a timing light.Remove all spark plugs, turn the engine by hand and get the #1 spark plug at TDC on the compression stroke.

I would replace the ignition module that is under the distributor cap and that should fix your problem.
