Re: need help

What exactly did he pull out?
Is the TFI module plugged in correctly?

Re: need help

No spark where? Has he traced the spark back to the coil? Start testing by putting an old spark plug in the high tension (HT) lead that comes from the coil to the centre of the distributor cap and see if you get a spark when you turn the engine over. Next get a noid light (special cheap test light available most ato parts places for testing fuel injector pulse signals) and plug that into the small low tension lead on the other side of the coil and see if it flashes when you turn the engine over. Then report back here. If the engine has been in and out I would suspect that part of the wiring harness may not be plugged in so check all the engine bay wiring harnesses for a loose or open connection.
