I recently fixed a no spark problem in an '89 4 cylinder. I numerous check
I thought it was the ignitor -- but it wasn't. I doubt you will find
anyplace that can test them. First question: Have you jumpered the
diagnosis connector and checked for trouble codes ?

number of checks I thought it was the ignitor and it wasn't. First
question: Have you jumpered the diagnosis connector to see if the check
engine light is showing trouble codes ?

If you're going to keep the car, and work on it yourself, try to find
the Toyota factory repair manuals. Try searching eBay over time.
If you're getting no spark, there's a trouble shooting flow chart that
goes step by step, including the pick up coils in the distributor and
also signals between the igniter and ECM, checking connections,
etcetera. If you really think it is the igniter, try substituting one
from a wrecking yard.
At least you don't have an intermittent condition. By following the
proper test procedures, the problem can be isolated and corrected.

You could do a basic check to see if there is battery volts getting to the
igniter. If you cant use a multimeter or dont have one, try buying one of
those $1 or $2 automotive test lights, They come in a bubble pack from most
discount barns. Follow the instructions which basically say to connect the
wire lead to negative or earth (any major part of the body), then using the
screwdriver type probe (with the small bulb/lamp inside) touch each of the
coil contacts. If there is no volts there,..try and source any volts on the
igniter.

Turn the ignition to ON while doing this test.

My problems with this same car turned out to be oil leaking into the plug
terminals where they connect to the plug. I'm not alone in having this
problem.

4 cil? Plugs are on top right, How did you get oil in there? t would
be all over the motor if that was true.
I once changed my plugs and did not tighten one fully, a bit of blowby
gas made it look like oil. Change plugs and use a Torque wrench

There are OIL SEALS pressed into the valve cover that seal the spark plug
tubes from engine oil. When they leak, replace 'em. Toyota is a bit proud
of those four seals.

In my case it was 1 improperly torqued plug, recently I replaced them
with no sign of the previous residue.
