I think you need to look at the ignition coil, follow the wire that goes into the center of the distributor cap, that will be your ignition coil or module.

New spark plugs!


chance of a busted timing chain...see if the rotor turns....replace with this kit..pressure shoe, headgasket, oil pump possibly need an new timing case at this point..the oil pump is driven as is the distributor...no turn....replace~ http://www.discountbodyparts.com/catalog/feeds/Toyota/Pickup/ Replacement/Timing_Chain_Kit/1990/KIT1-102713-61-B.html? dbpcid=gglpla
