Weve got no spark on our 2L camry, we replaced the coil with a 180i corrola's. We took out a plug wire and inserted a plug and hold it agaist the engine. We switch on the car hte feul pomp comes on and tested the distributor by turning it outside the car and got spark. But when we insert the distributor and put everything in place and start turning the key the fire are gone. As soon as we took out the distributor and test it outside we got spark again. Bot dont work when its fitted.

Insert the distributor without the cap crank the engine and check if the rotoe is turning. If it does not turn, you have a filed timing belt.

At the distributor, ensure you have battery voltage at the main supply wire with ignition switch turned on and also WHILE cranking. A faulty ignition switch would cut off the power supply.

Make shore the rotor is spinning. Verify the cam shaft is not broken.
