Did you check the following.

  • Timming marks, maby your cam belt jumped teeth
  • did you check a plug for spark
Another way is to turn you engin crank to its mark top dead centre. the open your disribitor cap and see if rotar is pointed to plug no one.

The ignition module is located under the dash on these models. However, I would start with the coil packs and crankshaft sensor, then work back to the ignition module.

Check the coils that have been replace for bent or broken prongs that plug into the ignition control module and if nothing looks damaged then i would think the ignition control module is faulty.Replace ignition control module.

Your car has a sealed transmission, in order to check it you have to go to the dealer or a transmission

shop, its not owner servicable. takes dextron vi, 4 speed 7.4 quarts, 3 speed 4quarts

And as far as the no start, are your plugs getting voltage, if not check your coil, if there is no spark

to your plugs the car will not fire up. good luck!

Well the ignition module could cause it to die but it wouldn't cause the starter to not crank. Sounds like power feed to the ignition switch. Also it would run with the ecm fuse blown, it would just run in back-up. Have you checked the fusible links at the starter. Make sure the 5/8 inch nut is tight on the starter. The positive battery cable and the fusible links should be hooked to it.
