Checking coil primary, at 2 pin conn. At the distributor across the 2 terminals, on the 200 ohm scale I got 1.1 ohms, should be.06 -.08. Checking coil secondary, on the 20k ohm scale I got 5000 ohms, should be 12,000 - 18,000 ohms. Does this mean my coil is bad.
XXXXXXXXX PLEASE REPLY SOON !XXXXXXXXXX

It seems by these numbers it is, take it with you to the parts store, most can test it before you replace it. How did ASD pin 89 testing go?

ASD relay circuit check out good. Had my leads crossed when checking 2 pin conn. Green/orange wire. Checking it the right way. Checked out good.
Thank you so much for your help. The imformation from service manual at auto parts store was to vauge.
The imformation you gave me was systematic and tehcnical. I will see if auto parts will test the coil. You have to buy whole distributor. 250.00 bucks. Did you ever check the manufacture date on the distributor? I know your symtoms didnt match exactly, but the TSB does say other symtoms can occur, and I catagorize yours as another symtom.

I dont know were to find the manufacture date for the distributor. The only numbers I found on the distributor were T5T7172 and 1917VC.
But got a distributor from junk yard for 50.00 bucks.
Checked the coil seconary readings on junk yard distributor and the readings are within specs. Going to install it this morning.
XXXXXXXX replacing the distributor fixed it. XXXXXX
thanks for your help. A nother satisfied customer.
HAPPY NEW YEAR !
