My car just started to die when I came to a stop so I thought that it was the fuel pump so I replaced it. Well when it didn't start I checked for spark. NO SPARK AT ALL. So I replaced the distributor and the coil and still no luck. Please help. There is power that goes to the coil and two grounds. I heard there was supposed to be a pulse in the ground to create a spark. Is that so? What do you think? Again please help.

No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it.

So which would be more likely between the crank sensor, ignition control module, and computer that would make the coil spark. How would I test a computer, can oreilys test it to see if it is okay or something?

Well the input to the coil has a hot and is getting power to it. But it shouldnt be the coils resistance if I put on brand new coil and didn't work and it I replaced the distributor brand new which has the ignition module in it so both are brand new. It doesn't have a pick up coil or a crank sensor. Not too sure if it has cam sensor, would that make the coil not spark? The only thing that I could think of what would probably be wrong would be the computer. There are 3 wires that are in the clip that go to the coil. One power and two grounds. Are one of the grounds supposed to go off and on to get the coil to spark or no?

No, I put in new distributor and I still have no spark. I have no spark to the coil and the distributor and ignition module are after it. I was wondering what was before the coil. I figured that it as to be something before the coil.
