SOURCE: 1990 K5 Blazer DIED(Electrical?)?

There may be no injector pulse if the computor does not see a RPM signal.
There will be no spark if the ignition module does not see a dist pulse from the dist pickup.......a RPM signal.
Because you do not have both ......I would suggest to check/change the dist pick up.
Follow the wires from the ignition module inside the dist to the pickup which is also inside the dist.
If it is just a bad dist pickup....keep all your old parts as good spares.
Also...is the dist turning? to provide a RPM signal?
You will have to remove the dist to change the pick-up.....mark your timing locations......"rotor position" and "dist body location"before removal.
A quick test before installing the "repaired dist" .....plug it in the the truck wiring and turn on the key....DO NOT CRANK THE ENGINE OR YOU WILL LOSE YOUR DIST ROTOR CORRECT POSITION......as you spin the dist by hand .....the injectors should spray.

SOURCE: I have a 93 mercury topaz 4cyl 2.3L that stalls

It sounds to me like you replaced everything but the most likely cause of a stall while driving...The crank sensor.

1990 chevy silverado 1500 wont run


Code 12 means you are in test mode, code 34 is a problem with the map sensor, and code 35 is a problem with the idle control valve.
But those two codes could show up if you disconnect those sensors or if the engine is having other problems.
In situations where the engine stalls, it is very easy to overlook something or assume a component is working.
Treat it like a no start. Pull a plug wire and watch the spark as the engine dies. Use carb cleaner or starting fluid to boost fuel supply.
You'll have to figure out if it is loosing spark or fuel to proceed.
Things like the coil, the stator in the bottom of the dist, or a relay can be the cause. Even low fuel pressure.

1996 avenger tries to die while driving but will continue running if i back off the gas. i replaced the plugs but still missfires randumly. sometimes right when it starts up.


Try changing the fuel filter. Sounds like fuel restriction to me. Usually found on the passenger side frame rail 2ft. ahead of rear tire. Good luck!

1989 dodge d150. truck will run fine for about 15 minutes then dies. I changed the fuel filter and it still dies. both injectors seem to be pumping fuel. so any ideas.


If you are sure right after the engine dies you have fuel I would think it was the coil going bad see if yiou have spark right after it dies. If you have spark squirt gas into the throuttle body and see if it starts
