Hello -

Okay, to help you best I am going to need your specific model. Please be specific as there are several 4WD choices. Next, please give me your specific engine size in liter and the 8th digit of our VIN.

Once I get this info. We can jump right into checking a few things.

The pugs are new, The wires about a year same as cap and rotor.
The thing is there is no power going to the distributor
whe wire seems to be from the firewall area. The test sheet you sent is to faint to read. Roy
