I changed the oil and spark plugs and when I was done, it wouldn't start. I had no problems before I did this. I checked with everything I did and I have no spark coming from the coil. I have replaced the coil and the igniter unit and still have the same problem. I have checked the fuses in the engine compartment and they all look good. I have checked to see if I had knocked a wire loose when I R&R the plugs but see nothing unusual. The motor cranks but no spark from the coil. I checked the distributer cap and rotor and it looks fine but the problem lies before it gets here. I'm at odds now. If the oil pump went bad, will it cause the coil not to spark? Fuel pump? I remember back in the old days that when the capacitor in the distributor went bad, this very thing happens. I can't find a capacitor like that in this motor. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
have the same problem?
