[DML] Re: 911, engine running on 3 cylinders MORE INFO



If you can't get any spark out of the distributer for the 3 spark
plugs another remote possability could be some kind of problem with
your pick-up coil or the rotor that the coil picks the signal up from.
It tells the ECU to fire the ignition coil so if it is not getting
pulses for those positions the coil will not generate a spark. Maybe
the gap has to be adjusted? Maybe the rotor (not the one on top for
the distributer cap) is bent?
