Were is the ignition module located on a 1999 gmc Yukon

Instead of spending money on parts, you should get a book and troubleshoot the circuit. It could be the pickup or the module in the distributor, or other electronic components.

Car stalls and will not restart

Most likely close to the gas tank and where can be seen when car is jacked up.Manufacturers don't like placing filters far from the fuel pump.And that's in the tank.They don't want to make it too easy on us,so they put the filter there near the tank.You can always call the auto parts store,or ask them where it s located when you go get the new fuel filter.They just look it up in the books.Rigger

Want to remove and replace the distributor in my 1997 gmc

1 Remove the plastic cover from the engine block with a wrench, then let the spark plug wires lead you to the distributor. It's at the back of the engine block.

2 Remove the negative cable from the battery at the side of the engine compartment; carefully pull the spark plug wires off the distributor cap so you don't damage them. Use a screwdriver to take off the coil leads from the distributor and the electrical connector at the bottom of the distributor.

3 Loosen the clamps and take off the distributor cap. Mark the parts to align the rotor position to the distributor housing and the housing to the engine block. This will help replace parts correctly during distributor installation.

4 Unbolt the distributor hold-down bolt with a wrench and remove the distributor from the engine.

5 Install the new Sierra distributor, aligning the marks for proper seating in the engine block. When ordering the distributor, give the parts dealer your model, year and engine size. You can order part number A1841639 from Parts Train for a 4.3L engine.

6 Re-install the distributor hold-down bolt. Replace the distributor cap and put the clamps back on. Attach the electrical connector at the base of the distributor, put on the spark plug wires and coil leads, and hook up the negative battery cable.

Where is the icm located on 1991 Camaro 3.1

I don't know where it is located, but this link will take you to the product page at oreilly auto parts store so you can see what the part looks like and hopefully this will help you find it under the hood. It's part of the ignition, so I would look close to the distributor or just follow the spark plug wires backwards untill you run into something that looks like that. Just notice the "two" connectors coming out of it, that should make it easy to locate.!s!Control+Unit!s!Ignitor/02801/C0334.oap?model=Camaro&vi=1035762&year=1991&make=Chevrolet

Cant find out which fuse goes where my horn doesnt work and i dont have a owners manual and it doesnt say on the fuse box

You apparently don't read your question either

You don't even have a vehicle listed

If you do have a blown fuse, then what?
Replacing it won't fix your horn

Buy an owners manual for all your vehicles
so you can find fuses & bulbs

1995 Silverado 1500 350 tbi; Engine started missing badly about two weeks ago. Low on power. Checked the following and all good; compression, plugs, dist cap and rotor

How did you inspect your parts. Sometimes a part might look ok when actually it is bad. When was the last time you replaced your Fuel filter? I would perform a fuel pressure test. You may have a weak fuel pump. You don't list checking your plug wires. You may have some bad plug wires. Also remove your rotor and look in the distributor. There is a part located under where the rotor goes that is a ceramic type of material. I can't remember what they call it but inspect it for cracking. Is is a fairly common thing. If you see cracking you will need to replace the distrubutor shaft which is not a big deal or you can buy a remanned distributor if you don't want to mess with it. Also you may have an EGR valve that is sticking open which could cause your symptoms.
