    Everything I see on the internet mentions a TFI (Thick Film Integrated) ignition. That doesn't help me. Is the Crank Angle Sensor on the front of the engine?

1988 ford ranger 2.9 ltr engine stalls while driving , restarts in a few minutes usually


There are several possibilities, but based on how you described the symptoms I suggest a profile igniton pickup. On these systems the failure usually begins as dropping a cylinder occasionally,like a misfire,mostly during high underhood temperatures,will manifest into stalling and finally into a stall with no resart condition. Symptoms are most likely to occur in summer. The pickup is inside the distributor and the distributor must be disassembled to install it,the trickiest part being the removal and installation of the distributor drive gear. They are iron and easily broken. The simplest solution is another distributor. The ignition modules typically do not fail in this manner,but this is classic for the pickup coil. A code for loss of pip signal should be present, it is possible for a code to not be present,though very unlikely. Having worked on these systems for years this would be my first area of diagnosis.

Trouble code P0320 ignition/dist. engine speed input circuit


P0320 - Ignition / distributor engine speed circuit malfunction

The ignition engine speed sensor input signal to Powertrain Control Module (PCM) or Electronic Control Module (ECM) is continuously monitored. The test fails when the signal indicates that 2 successive erratic profile ignition pickup (PIP) pulses occurred.

Symptoms:
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Lack/Loss of Power
- The engine may be harder to start
- The engine may stumble or stall

When is the code detected?
The P0320 code is triggered when 2 successive erratic PIP pulses are detected.

Possible Causes:
- Loose wires/connectors
- Faulty Crank Position Sensors
- Arcing secondary ignition components (coil, wires and plugs)
- Low battery charge
- Powertrain Control Module

Possible Solutions:
- Resecure loose wire or connectors
- If battery charge is low, recharge or replaced battery
- Replaced crank position sensor
- Replaced starter motor


Test it and tell us news.

1995 jeep cherokee limited, motor cranks but will not start, smells like getting too much fuel


Then its probably not getting spark. You should test for spark. Probably a bad ignition coil. If you get a code reader hooked up to it and it says P.I.P. circuit failure than it is the pickup sensor in the bottom of the distributor. Could also have the Ignition control module tested. But probably just the ignition coil.
