1995 Toyota corolla

Asked by Feb 06, 2017 at 06:01 PM about the 1995 Toyota Corolla DX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I have a 95 corolla with the 1.8 I wasn't getting
any power to the ignition coil so ruled it was a bad
pickup so I just replaced the whole distributor. So
tried that still no spark but I'm getting power to the
distributor now. A lot of people say the crankshaft
sensor may be bad any ideas

You wouldn't have a crankshaft sensor since the computer you have in the car is an OBD1 computer. The only things left to check would be the coil, or the ignition control module. They can be tested at a auto parts store. I am not sure if the ICM is in the distributor or not, if it is then that would have come new in the new distributor.

Everyone is saying there is a crank sensor but I got spark once after replacing distributor but the car didn't start. Now nothing


There is no crankshaft sensor. That didn't start until 1996 with the OBDII computer. You have something else going on. What about the timing belt, check the timing to see where everything is.

Timing belt is good. everything lined up


It would be possible if this vehicle was manufactured say in December of 1995 that they put a OBDII computer and engine into it, so there would be a crankshaft sensor. Just have to look. I would have to search to see where the location of it is for sure, but a lot of time it is by the crankshaft balancer. A bad crankshaft sensor would not allow the engine to start.

The car isn't starting at all. And I called and they said that this car does have a sensor


Then get a crankshaft sensor and replace it.

I'm just tired of throwing money at this car. Would the sensor be what's causing the distributor to not be producing spark to the plugs?


Yes most definitely.

Thanks for the help.
