Then you need to check your timing

    its possible that the computer is going bad and tripping the check engine light. or it could be the spark plugs wires are not in order on the distributor. or your tps sensor, or the throttle body may need to be cleaned. or your fuel filter could be clogging up.

Hi. I have a 99 camaro 3.8l and I'm having some

Sounds like a fuel problem,You did the coils,plug wires and sparkplugs, that should of taken care of the misfire,You may have a EGR that stay open and doesnt close properly and it doesnt set a code why the ECM compensate for the false air.Now this causes rough idle,and smooth cruise with no misfire until you get to stop or idle speed.The map sensor this can also fail when warm especially if the vacuum it is suppose to get is not met. And a failing MAP causes a lack of power. A TPS failing causes a stumble and lack of power but no misfire.cansmo_184.gif

It has no power to coil and the voltage to the tps and iat and temp sensors is to high 5.4 volts allready replaced the pcm

Check the (automatic shutdown relay) in the power distribution center for power when the key is in the on position. It controls the power to the coil,fuel pump,injectors,oxygen sensor. To check the relay, remove it from the panel. check the location of #30 corresponding to location of pin on relay. using a test light check to see if you have power on panel. Should have voltage, then check #86 on panel with the key on. It should have power. If no power then check for a blown fuse. Connect an ohm meter to the relay on terminal 86 and 85 and check the resistance. there should be 75 ohms resistance. Then check for continuity between terminals 30 and 87. There should be no continuity. Using jumper wires connect battery voltage to terminal 86 and ground terminal 85 to verify that there is continuity between terminals 87 and 30. If there isn't, replace the relay. Hope this will help you.

P1320 code appeared and we replaced the cam position sensor. It ran OK, but started rough until warm and next code showed #1 cylinder misfire. Replaced #1 coil and it ran great. Then later the engine light...

i just had the same problem in my bmw 325i. Probably vaccum leak or exhaust leak. Check that nothing came loose in these areas. It takes time for your car to learn the new CPS (cam pos. sensor) so give it a few days and reset the code again and see if it works.

If u have a scan tool make sure the distributer is in sync. I sugest the u rent a DRB3 from chrysler at Adjust the the distributer and set the cam/crank sync close to 0 if the sync does not move the distributer and drive gear(camshaft) is damaged. It sound like a sync problem though let me know if this helps.

Runs for 45 minutes and wants to die

Try pouring a little water over the base of the coil and if the car stops running its the coil ,Common problem
