  1. yikes. scary stuff there. I will keep that in mind if the spark does randomly come back. They day it happened it was raining so never know. I tried starting it agian about two hours after i broke down and still wouldnt start and still had no spark. Someone elsewhere had mentioned that if i have no spark at the plug and no spark at the coil, it probably means that my ignition module went bad. He said that this is something pretty common with the truck. Thats fine and all but i want to test this before i go buy a new one because for all i know it could be something farther down the line ( pickup coil, wiring, so on.)
  2. Greetings New to the forums and im sorry that my first post is asking questions but it is what it is. Friday i was on my way to work and the engine just shut off. Lights were still working, radio (and ham radio) were both still working. Gauges and everything on the dash still working. Power steering and breaks were out and of course the gas was not working. Rolled to the side of the road and got to a safe spot off of the busy bridge i had just come off of. Noticed that after the truck shut off, that the voltage gauge was very low. Probably about 7 volts or so. Someone stopped to help and attempted to jump the truck but it would got take. so called a tow truck. Got a tow over to my garage and started looking into it. Truck wouldn't start again since it happened. Determined that is has no spark at the spark plug, and no spark at the distributor cap. Can someone point me in the direction of what to test next? Im not of a habbit of needlessly buying new parts until it works again. Id rather find the cause of the issue and fix it and then buy whatever components needed. She turns over fine, compression sounds like its there. Not sure on the fuel yet but i figured i would check that after the no spark issue. the truck is 1991 k1500 with the 5.7.
