    my buddies 89 dx died the other day

    i cked the engine and it turns over like it wants to start so i started trouble shooting it...

    there is no spark at all

    pulled his plugs.. all coked so new plugs... still no go


    took apart the dizzy and saw that the cap was destroyed and looks like the spring loaded peice finally blew up...

    we got a new coil and a new cap (didn't replace the rotor cause he had no more money)

    thing still won't spark...

    i'm wondering if something else is the problem b/c after a new coil and a new cap it should be giving off some semblance of a spark... unless the rotor is really bad... but it looked ok to me....

    anyone have any ideas or suggestions on where to start or to narrow down the possible problems?

    what about the plug wires? at least they are a cheap thing to try.

    Get a new rotor, if that doesn't fix it it is probably the ignitor.
