Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Mercury Villager 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic
My car failed the emissions test due to the knock sensor. I replaced the knock sensor myself. Upon completion the car would not start. There is no spark at the distributor. I retraced my steps thinking I left something unplugged (other than the knock sensor there's another sensor above the crossover pipes) but they all are connected. I have done resistance and voltage tests on the distributor and the cable and all test within range. I get the battery voltage at the rotor which means the coil is not getting it's signal. At this point I was thinking the distributor just happened to die on me but find that hard to believe.
1. Am I missing something?
2. What do you suggest?
