As Robert said the TFI was notorious on these era of Ford's Ford failure . I've owned several and replaced all the TFI modules on them . Do you have another vehicle you can borrow the module from ?

1st did You check the TFI module? Also the plug on the coil may be loose. May also have bad pic up coil in distributor. Sounds like bad TFI module though

Both answers are pointing you in the right direction , but first check these things ,yes distributor rotation is there but how worn is the cap and rotor the air gap between those spark wire towers inside and the rotor may be to far apart ,so the spark can't make it to the wires and plugs this is the cheapest to do but look at them first if you see a lot of build up on them chances are this is the problem you can check the coil and connector by removing the cap with the coil wire attached and check for voltage with a meter this will confirm that power is coming to the rotor through the cap then look at the rotor contacts the top tab should be in real good shape and the side one should not be blackened or pitted if you see anything other than clean and smoothe metal surfaces on it or the cap tower contacts this is it please check these first before you do anything the air gap is measured in thousands of an inch and will wear down especially if you don't remember when the last time you did a complete tune up not just changing the spark plugs you must eliminate the easiest and cheapest cost first tfi modules are expensive but this may be that I'm trying to give you all the possibilities along with Roberts X2 which are great answers ok good luck stephen

The spade terminals inside of the clip that attaches to the ignition coil wear from vibration.
Confirm if the coil is seeing power and switches ground pulses.

1995 jetta 3 spark goes into the distributor from the coil, but does not reach the plugs


Do you mean you can take off the coil to dist. high tension cable at the distributor end, and you get spark from the coil? If the spark is strong and blue, then the only thing between that and the spark plug wire end is the distributor cap and rotor. Both are high wear items, good to replace them every hundred thousand or two. Miles, that is.

An ignition system has a primary and a secondary circuit. The secondary circuit is the high voltage coming out of the coil to the top of the distributor, where it touches the top of the rotor, and the current is passed from the center of the rotor to the tip, where it whisks by the metal tip on the dist. cap where a spark plug wire connects. So a continuous current from the coil to the individual spark plug wires, and to the plugs. It's only an instant, but it's a current flow from origination in the coil to ground. When the current reaches the bottom of the spark plug, it has to jump a gap to find a ground. When it jumps, it conveniently makes a spark.

How to check faulty 6 volt coil


pull the coil wire from the dist cap attach a spark plug to the coil wire make sure the plug is grounded. attach a jumper wire from the - side of the coil turn key on. touch the jumper to any good ground. then remove the jumper from ground every time you do this the coil should emit a spark from the plug if no spark the coil is bad if the plug sparks the coil is good

have you put a new set of plug wires on it. use a spark plug tester, and put it between plug wire and dist, cap. if it is sparking you will see it. if yes and not to plugs put on new plug wires. good-day ! if above checks out. remove dist, cap and see if shaft of dist, is turning. some of the hondas have a plastic type drive gear on bottom of dist, shaft. that goes bad.

My toyota corolla was idline fine then just cut off . no spark in distributor


If your engine cranks normally but will not start and cuts off because it has no spark, or it stalls and won't restart because it has no spark, the problem may be due to any of the following:
A bad pickup inside the distributor a stripped distributor drive gear (common problem with plastic distributor drive gears, broken, loose or corroded wires from the pickup to the ignition module or PCM.
If there is power going from the coil to the dist, but no spark coming out of the dist. the Condenser is bad. Small round thing that has a wire that hooks to the points. If the engine has no spark, check for voltage at the coil positive terminal when the ignition key is on.
If there is voltage, the problem is on the trigger side of the coil (pickup, crank sensor, ignition module or primary wiring circuit).
If there is NO voltage at the coil, the problem is on the supply side (the ignition switch or ignition wiring circuit).
If the coil has voltage, the problem may be a bad high voltage output wire from the coil to the distributor, hairline cracks in the coil output tower, or cracks or carbon tracks inside the distributor cap or on the rotor.You can check this with voltmeter.------------------
That's it.

Check to see if you have Power at the coil when the ignition is in the run position. Try to put the points on High cam so the points do not burn when you do this test. Also see if your Rotor is turning. You could have a broken timing chain or sheared off a Drive pin in the Distributor gear.

Check your Polarity at the coil. I do not see a new condenser as a replaced part, try a new one. Would be interested in knowing what you found.

Is the coil connected to the ditributor? did you knock any connections off in the process? Does it turn over but not fire? do you have spark at the plugs? Are you sure of cylinder location in respect to firing order? Did you-and check this first as with any elec. problems-blow a fuse in the ignition circuit? good luck!

If you have a 12 volt test light put the point on the positive lead to
the coil and the ground lead to a good ground ( Negitive side of battery ). Then turn the key on. If the test light comes on then you have power to the coil. With power to the coil confirmed have someone crank the engine and put the test light on the negitive side of the coil. The light should flash at a rapid steady rate. If not then your pickup in the distributor may be bad. If no power to coil with key on or when cranking you may have a bad ignition switch.
Another way to test for spark is to remove the coil wire from the dist cap and hold the end close to a ground ( 1/4 inch away) and
have some one crank the engine. If you get a good spark but no
spark to the spark plugs you may have a cracked dist cap or a bad rotor. If no spark at coil wire use a wire in place of the coil wire to check for spark. You may have a bad coil wire. Good luck. Neil W.
