Question about 1987 Plymouth Reliant

1 Answer

No spark i recently have had problems with the car not wanting to run. It will drive fine and then begin to hesitate and or bog down. Just the other day the car stalled out and it hasn't started since. I replaced the plugs/wires, distributor/and rotor, pick-up coil, map sensor, ignition coil, and it seems as though i'm not getting any spark.

Have you and/or, do you know how to cycle key on, off, on, off, on & retrieve trouble codes?
check engine light will flash. here's an example how to read & record them. flash,pause,flash,flash. is code 12. flash,flash,flash,pause,flash,flash,flash,flash is code 34. then there will be a little longer pause & the flashing starts again. Always a 2 digit number. 5 flashes,pause, 5 flashes, is code 55, end of message (or codes). Try doing that and lets see what codes you get.

1989 Acura Integra that hesitates after driving.

Sounds a lot like your spark plaugs / leads are havign some trouble conducting.

Spark plugs and leads sound be changed every 12500 miles (spark) / 40000 miles (leads).

If they are nearing the end of their life you will get this hesitation.

Also a good thing to check is your distributor cap. I had a similar issue with my integra where it would bunny hop unless i absolutely planted my foot down.

I pulled off the distributor cap and cleaned the pins on the inside of the cap (flat head screw driver and scrapped away all of the built up carbon) Once i had done that (and replaced my leads and plugs the car went back to smooth riding all of the time.
