SOURCE: I have a 1994 ford

I've been trying to get the timing procedures for this model, as I have a 94 aspire. sounds like you have something (a timing light) hooked up and can see the the timing mark moving, but I assume when you say you've shorted st1 to ground, that eliminates the computer control of idle. So the the computer is out of the equation, right? Or is it not electronic ignition?
I have eliminated some idle roughness by cleaning and setting spark plug gap, new air filter, and if its time, a new gas filter. Then, cleaned the sensors inside the air filter compartment, and the intake manifold. I'd heard of using wd40 on the same part of a taurus referred to as a oxygen sensor. But eventually, cleaning the plate that opens to let oxygen into the intake manifold is a good idea. I have 160,000 miles on my aspire ( 4 door hatchback 5-speed manual) and it gets 49 mpg on trips. I replaced the gear oil with mercon dextron last winter, It may have helped increase a few mpg. Also, check for vaccum leaks in your vaccum hoses. that's all I can think of right now.

Have you checked for spark on all 8 plugs? Unplug the exhaust side coil pack and run the engine. Does it run on all 4 cylinders?

actually according to my Ford EVTM your truck uses a DIST, ICM and a misfire sensor

However, that is only realitive to the fact the the P0385 = coil code NOT a CKP/CMP code which you have neither

a P0385 indicates that the self test has detected a MD/Sensor/circuit failure. Possible causes are....
wiring harness open (MD or Sign Rtn)
MD circuit shorted to power OR ground
faulty MD sensor
faulty PCM

What is the PO320 code? what is wrong with my 2005 Hyundai xg350L?


P0320 Hyundai Ignition/Distributor Engine Speed Input Circuit Possible causes
- Faulty Ignition/Distributor engine speed sensor
- Faulty Crankshaft Position sensor
- Ignition/Distributor engine speed sensor harness is open or shorted
- Ignition/Distributor engine speed sensor circuit poor electrical connection
- Low battery charge
- Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM)
What about the obd code?
The P0320 Hyundai code is triggered when the Engine Control Module (ECM) detects that there is no current at the ignition coil group
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
P0320 Hyundai Description
Ignition failure sensor is used to check whether the spark ignition is occurred correctly or not and also used to tachometer drive. The sensor monitors the voltage difference between a resistance which is on the battery circuit for ignition coil. When the ignition coil works properly, the electric current through the resistance is detected as voltage drop. This is confirmed for every ignition event with the crankshaft sensor and the camshaft sensor. If ECM detects a malfunction, no ignition is possible, so the engine would not start. If there is no ignition signal for a predetermined cycle for one or two ignition coils, an ignition coil circuit failure exists.

OBD code P0320


HI there code P0320 is ignition-distributor engine speed input circuit malfunction .
IS your Engine Light ON or Service Engine Soon Warning Light if so check for lose wire connections
At Crank Position Sensors =if OK
Check for Arcing secondary ignition components,coil, wires and plugs.=if OK
Check your battery for Low battery charge.=if OK
Replace your crank position sensor .

good luck

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
