Hello, my nephew has a 1990 toyota camry, he asked me to llok at it since it wont start. First thing i checked was fuel, and the timing belt. Everything was good there, next i checked for spark and i didnt have no spark at all. So i checked the coil with my multi meter, but when i took off the Distributer cap there was a good amount of oil in it. So i checked the coil and it was bad it almost looked as if it exploded. I changed the coil and still no spark, so i then check the pick up coil for resistence, and it was good, then i checked the gap and it was good too. So then i thought it could be the igniter, but no local part store carries one in staock and it runs about 170.00 bucks. So i want to the junkyard and i picked up three igniters, i swaped all of them in and still no spark. So i start checked the wires to see if i get Voltage to the coil and so i do get voltage to the coil, but the minute it touches the coil my voltage reading drops to 0. So i figured it was sending the power to the secondary portion of the coil and i only get about .016 volts. I am really stuck and running out of ideas can anyone help. Also i did check all the fuses, and i got no codes.
