Answers from the Automotive Experts

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Helia, If you have no spark from the distributor, then replacing all the parts you did will do no good. They are all found after the problem and were probably not the problem. You need to remove the distributor cap and crank the engine to see if the distributor is turning. This could be one problem. The other could be a bad coil. I would suggest that you have a certified technician diagnose this problem before you replace any other parts. Good luck. Lori Johnson
