Question about Opel Cars & Trucks

Open Question

My 1989 Opel Monza 1.8 with carburettor won't start. It turns over and sounds as if it wants to fire up. I cleaned the carburettor and fitted a new kit with gaskets.

SOURCE: how to remove and clean carburettor on 1989 jeep

Your parts store will sell you a carb rebuild kit for $15-25 that will have complete instructions. However, if you have questions about how to remove the carb, I'd guess that you are not ready to rebuild one.

Wiring from coil to distributor for opel monza 1989

Sadly this is a USA site... and Opel data seems to be pretty scarce on your car...

Simply (generally)... You are looking to see steady battery on your coil.. as the distributer turns it SHOULD BE interrupting ground...

and generating a PRETTY POWERFUL spark...

Use a volt meter and measure for battery = good.

... no battery... back up to the BALAST RESISTOR (if equipped)... measure for battery...
Only now do you need to know the circuit back to your starter switch ("B" and "S" leads).

If you have a clever (preferably smaller/tool (we'll call SPARKY)) assistant... you can convince to hold the spark lead REALLY REALLY close to the spark plug... If SPARKY sees (or feels) a spark move on to the FUEL... FILTER & PUMP.

Sparky would be smarter to pull out the center wire of the distributor cap... that way less likely your assistant will get ENERGIZED...

No spark = possibly bad distributor or coil

Now disconnect the ground side and manually apply rapid ground... test for spark = good coil

Still no spark = bad coil,

There is a tool for that (I'll post it below)...

Now no spark = clean/replace points (& capacitor) or
replace inductor!!
