Hello!

Does the ignition coil have power with the key on?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
no
Expert:  Amedee replied 5 years ago.
Are you sure? How did you check for this?

Have you checked engine compression?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
with a multi meter and scope. what does the compression half to do with getting no fire
Expert:  Amedee replied 5 years ago.
Because if the timing belt broke, the distributor rotor will not be spinning and you will have no fire and no compression..

Check to see if the check engine light comes on with the key on. Also, check the fuses inside the vehicle to be sure they have battery voltage with the key on..

Let me know!
