Hello,

Put on a "spark box" into your ignition. I have a Mallory HI-Fire 6A (?) and the car starts and runs good. You will also get better gas mileage and pass smog test.

1988 camaro runs great but then just suddenly dies at any time, then starts right back up.


If the check engine light is not on, its going to be tough to troubleshoot.
You would need to be able to duplicate the problem on demand to know if you fixed it or not.
Could be anything electrical, like a relay, or the coil, or ignition module, and so on.

Heater and airconditioner control on mercery grand marquis


If the fan will not run on ANY speed in your Grand Marquis, the problem is most likely NOT the control switch.

Check for power and ground at the blower motor connector. If power and ground is present, replace the blower motor. Otherwise, the problem is most likely a failed blower speed control module (VERY common). The blower motor speed controller is located in the A/C evaporator housing just below the heater hoses.

Note: It is also common for a bad blower motor to CAUSE the controller to go bad. You MAY have to replace BOTH.

Inside or directly under the distribitor cap is a plastic ring with either one or two wires attached..... these devices fail and not allow the engine to start.
It happened on my 88 chevy (305 cu in.). a quick fix is to replace it with a new one.. (Advance Auto) or other parts store.

I got code PO 305 on a 2002 Mercury Grand Marquis, what is the spark plug wire part called
This will have a direct coil over ignition with a coil over each spark plug. The coil is the electrical part over the spark plug. The coil also has a rubber part that is called the boot or spark plug boot. The boots can be purchased separately but the coils will come with new boots.

is it #5 coil,

Have you checked to see if there is any spark coming out of the number 5 coil?



and should I replace the coil and spark plug and what should the spark plug be gapped at?

When was the last time the spark plugs where changed? It may be due for all the spark plugs to be changed. The spark plug gap is usually listed on the emissions sticker under the hood. It should be .050 - .056 or very close to that.
