Default 1994 will not start

Please help. It is getting gas, the engine is turning over but just
no spark. How to test?
Is there an easy way to figure out what is bad? ie igniter, coil, etc.

battery power is on the coil. primary on coil is about 3 ohms and
secondary reads about 11.4 K ohms.

any suggestions? These parts are very expensive

Thanks

Almost every Toyota I have had ignition issues on, I have had to
replace an ignitor. They are in fact VERY expensive, but you can do
some searching online and come up with alternative sources, such as
used parts, or eBay. I can also recommend that ALL grounds are checked
thoroughly. I have found one or two vehicles to have a loose ground
due to some body work having been done or similar.
I have had some limited successes using ignitors from other model
Toyotas also. Just make sure there are no spare wires, and they
typically work well.

hope this helps

had a similar problem. Rotor and cap were definitely worn out. Changed rotor
and cap, then sprayed contact cleaner in the whole distributor. Minor
improvements. When I changed the plugs the car started right away. Was it
the plugs or are the wires still at fault? I don't know. Wires will be
next if the problem happens again.

Good luck
