Electrical problem
1995 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

It was recommende by rasmataz, one of your mechanics to troubleshoot the ignition system power input to the coil, distributor pick-up coil, and ignitor.

When I look at the car I see the distributor cap, then rotor underneath, and below that the coil. Are the other parts part of the distributor or where do I find them so that they can be checked.

Thanks,

Darrell

Checked for spark, getting intermittent spark.

Test the coil primary and secondary resistances/distributor pick-up coil-if its okay your last stop is the ignitor-If the wiring checks out between the distributor and computer-its either the computer or the distributor that's causing the problem-

The fix here since your getting intermittent spark that means the computer is telling the ignitor to fire the coil which is happening otherwise you won't be getting the intermittent spark.

Every parts are in the distributor-do you have a repair manual?

I have replacethe distributor cap, rotor, coil and now didtributor.

Still just cranks, is it possible the computer needs to be reset after replacing parts?

Where is the computer located/

i do not have a repair manual but I can get one if it would be helpful.

Should I check again for spark? Ground one of the wires, correct?

Any idea how much a new computer would run/

Still trying, thanks for all of your help.

You need to check for open and short on the wires between the distributor and computer-if okay change out the computer-

Is this accomplished by grounding one lead from the volt meter and checking for 12 vots on each line or should I be checking for resistance from end to end on each wire?

How many wires should there be?

Thanks,

Darrell
