1990 EA GL No start or spark
Finally found a place to seek some advice..........
I have a major prob with my (newly acquired) 1990 EA Falcon
Yesterday, got in, turned key and it started. Then it stalled when I released the handbrake. Fearing no evil I turned the key again .... and again.......and again......and again to no avail.
Got out and checked the plugs, leads etc to the following results
Fuel supply ok
No spark at plugs
No spark at coil
Power supplied to coil at connector
Therefore all being equal I presumed that the coil was the culprit and spent all day today replacing it. (They put things in the darnedst places.)
After much wrestling and writhing got Mr coil installed and happily turned the key again.......and again......and again......and again.
Repeated the fault finding sequence to find same results as above.
Consulted Gregory's tech manual (repeatedly) to ascertain other possible causes, once again to no avail.
Could someone please shed some light on this problem for me???
All suggestions greatly appreciated as I am dangerously close to turning my EA into a boat anchor.
