As I mentioned in the subject, I have been receiving no spark but my engine turns over. The timing belt has been checked, the coil changed, tried 3 different ignitors, the rotor has been replaced, the distributor cap replaced. This was all checked by my father, I will post more info in terms of voltage readings and the like once I can speak with him again. If anyone has any ideas as to what we can test, please send em this way!

Thank you very much

My car was running well, after one right turn, it suddenly stopped.

I ask someone to check it, found it is no spark.

What should I do?

Check for a bad crank sensor or coil.

This corolla is AE102ef model.
The engine is 7A-ef, 1726 ml.

I check the car, did not find the CPS.

This car, the coil and distributor are together.

There is a diagnostic box located next to left hand side shocky.

This car, when I turned the key on the check engine is not on,
is it possible the ecu problem? The fuse and relay is OK.

I checked the fuse box, found AM2 30A fuse is blown.
I pulled fan fuse to replace it.
The check engine light is back and car started.

Electrical problem

I have replaced the distirbutor, plugs, wires, ECU, cap and rotor. Car turns over but no spark. Could it be the igniton? Rotor turns, so I assume it is not the timing belt. Sorry I am a broke college student.

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.

If you have replaced the distributor and ignitor, check relays in main relay box under hood.

Not sure if the Corolla's had it back then but there's fuses inside the cab passenger side left knee area in some of the newer models.

There is a kick panel inside car near left foot.

I would check, but most likely the problem is in engine fuse block. Look at "engine main" relay.

Hi Im stranded outside my school right now, trying to get my horolla to FIRE. First of all, im go to school to be an automotive tech. After school, I did a cylinder compression test; removed all4 plugs and set aside the wires( I didnt disable the ignition like I should have, just put the plug boots aside pointing up in the air. Tested good, 170 psi per cylinder, OK, so I put back the plugs and wires AND IT HASNT FIRED SINCE, Ive been working on it for 2 hours.
L. The rotor spins like it should.
2. Its getting Fuel.
3. All fuses are ok.
Is it possible that I blew something by not disabling the ignition while cranking? What could have blown? Im ready to go home yall! But first I have to get her running! Thanks in advance for any ideas.(92 toyota corolla 4AFE, auto)

It may just be flooded, as the injectors will still spray fuel while the comp rest is being done, worth checking if you still got spark.
