85 4 runner

Hi Gentlemen,

I need help, I have an 85 4 runner that ran great up until a couple days ago. I am pretty mechanically inclined but this one stumped me. Truck turns over but will not start. I am getting fuel but my spark is inconsistent. Without throwing parts at the situation, distributor, coil, igniter box, etc. etc. Has any one had this problem and how did you fix it.

Great site

Ignitor is most always the case with symptoms like that, and if you do not already have a spare you should. It's probably the most common failure on those generation trucks and Runners..

I have narrowed it down to that, is there anyway to bypass it to check and be 100%

I had a problem where I was stalling on the trail. Then it would turn over but not start and it turned out to be my alternator. My truck is an 86 Runner. Welcome to TTORA.
