Question Car Grounds

Could a bad ground cause dizzy problems? there are times my car runs fine and others where it just wont start, could a bad ground cause this? I already changed my coil thinking that could of been it.

The fuel pump does work i checked that. I don't have spark sometimes so im guessing my dizzy is going bad, i just wanted to see if a bad ground could damage the dizzy or effect it in any way?

i'd say it's the igniter in the distributor going bad then. what year is your car and which engine do you have?

Did you swap in that engine? or was it already there when you got the car because we need to find out if you have an internal or an external igniter.

i thought there was but i can't find any information to support it. Maybe someone that is more knowledgeable will chime in soon but in the mean time i guess check the ground wires; the valve cover, underneath the distributor housing and i always forget where the third one is. Its either on the battery, the alternator or on the transmission.

well i have found that the igniter for the A1 has the same part number as that of the A6's; 06302-PT2-000.

(F22A1) #1

(F22A6) #7

In some other threads i have read that you can remove that and take it up to Autozone to have tested because they have a book that contains a bunch of values.

What I do know is that 90-91 Accords had the ignition coil inside the distributor, while 92-93 had it on the outside. If your distributor seems to have a fifth spark plug wire, then you have the external one.

I thought there was something different between the two.
