Hi there! Do you have a volt meter?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
no i dont
Expert:  Mike V. replied 6 years ago.
OK, how about a test light?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
yes
Expert:  Mike V. replied 6 years ago.
Ok, with the key on, check for power on the black/white wire on pin #7 in the harness to the coil. There should be battery voltage on that wire.
Let me know.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
yes, there is fire there
Expert:  Mike V. replied 6 years ago.
Is the coil separate from the distributor on your model? Some of the 96 had the 95 ignition system on them.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.

its getting fire thru coil but not the wires

Expert:  Mike V. replied 6 years ago.
So, you have replaced the distributor then?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
yes it was replaced
Expert:  Mike V. replied 6 years ago.
Ok, next question, is the rotor turning when you crank the engine? Did you use an autozone replacement?
