You will need to make sure wiring is good to distributor and grounds are good, make sure the distributor you got if rebuilt that it is no a defect and last do some testing.
first check for spark at the plugs,

Check a Chiltons or Haynes manual, the igniter may be separate from the distributor.

SOURCE: 1994 Toyota Camry Won't start.

you should check 3 things. AIr, Fuel, and "spark"
your cars could have many problems. Ignition module, fuel injectors, Mass Airflow Sensor.
You should check into all of these 3 things.
a crank-no start could be many things.
it could even be a cam positions sensors resistance going up when the engine heats up. Cracnk- no start means testing. n like i said
The motor is getting Air, There is Fuel being put into the cylinders, and the Spark plugs are firing.

Check HALL sensor , it's probably inside the distributor , another name for it is a camshaft position sensor.

SOURCE: car wont start, not getting spark

crankshaft sensor, or computer on toyotas then it was usually the distributor or the computer, but the crankshaft sensor might be bad too thats what helps to get you spark.

After replacing my distributor on my 89 toyota corolla it wont start


It is possible that if you replaced the distributor, you simply have the plugs in the wrong firing order. Another possibility is that you need new spark plugs, wires, plugs, distributor rotor and possibly a distributor cap. A long shot problem is the ignition coil, but since you have spark in one plug, it is unlikely.

Replacing distributor


well, to answer this we must know history, even the FSM states this.
its a toy engine so you have all facts online to match that engine.
1: it was wrong all along. timing ?
2: it was ok, time wise and want to just swap it out. ?

ILL shoot for the moon here, go easy way, #2
mark all wires. 1,2,3,4 (1 is water pump side, 4 is tranny side.0
mark cap terms too.
now transfer marks from old cap diz to new.
now remove cap on old
put crank at TDC such that #1 cap tower is at #1 wire.
this is called TDC #1 firing. (crank pulley marks are as FSM shows
then remove dizzy.
drop in new dizzy such that rotor still aligns with #1 cap tower term marked above.
clamp down dizzy
now do fine timing set running per FSM.

all this is at alldata.com and for if #1 is true, all wrong to start.

the above works for all dizzy cars made, mostly.

all this and more here.
vast info, all free too.

No fire to distributor


I'm sure you know the fuel pump won't have any affect on the ignition.
You may need a repair book to get the procedures and wiring diagrams to troubleshoot the ignition system.
I am assuming a new coil came with the replacement distributor. Did the cap and rotor get replaced too ?
Do you have voltage going to the distributor coil ?
Is the rotor turning when the engine is cranked ?

New plugs, new wires, new caps, new rotor, new distributor, still no fire to spark plugs


Check the wiring. You may have a loose wire for the ground or a bad ignition coil.

1995 toyota coroll turns over but wont start.no spark at plugs, changed cap and rotor


sounds like you need an ignighter which controls spark and it can be found in the distributor under the cap it should have a plug (wire harness) on it.

Distributor cap gasket missing technician said causeing mosture and that is why my car is stalling


If your car is equipped with a distributor, then yes, if that gasket is missing, then it would allow moisture to enter and cause your vehicle to stall, or run rather poorly. I would suggest changing your distributor cap and wires and this would correct the problem.

Just be sure to change one wire at a time from the old cap to the new cap, to the spark plug, You don't want to mix up where the wires belong this will cause you a headache you don't want.

Why your distributor could be blamed is because of the moisture causing rust, and rust won't allow electrical current flow, which a Spark ignited engine, relies on to ignite the fuel mixture in the cylinders.

Hope this helps.
