    Car starts and idles perfect and wakes up about 4k and pulls hard from there on. Just bought the car so I did the basic tune up plugs wires cap rotor then tried fuel filter and relay, distributor, Coil, MAF. tested TPS sensor ranges from .5v-4volts. Getting ready to pull timing cover off and check timing and then on to fuel pressure. Also worth mentioning, crank case breather has quite a bit of pressure as if it has blowby but the strange part is as the engine revs the pressure continues to decrease to almost no pressure by 4k rpm. What am I missing?

There is sensor in distributor called hall sensor ,this generates the pulse for your spark.this is probably faulty.

Sounds like you replaced alot of parts for nothing.
The pickup coil in the distributor "fires" the module which grounds the coil and the injectors.
Those components would need to be tested. The coil fires the plugs when the ground is removed by the module or the key switch.

Hello waddle, we need to confirm that it has spark at the spark plugs. After that it needs to have fuel pressure. The 3 "poots" sound like it ran out of gas....If you can hear the electric pump come on, and the fuel filter is clean, you should have pressure at the fuel rail on the engine. If the pump does not come on, and the fuse ( ECM B fuse powers the pump) & relay are ok, & you have voltage at the pump (inside of tank) then the pump needs to be replaced...
I hope this helps, reply back if further assistance is needed.

Hi, Ok you have confirmed that it's not a fuel problem. You need to check for spark. Pull the coil wire off of the coil(secondary lead-looks like a spark plug wire) Have some one crank it over and listen for a popping sound. IF yes, spark is at the coil, that means all ignition sensors are working. Next check for spark at ends of wires after cap. IF no replace cap and rotor. IF yes remove a couple spark plugs and check for fouling(wet, fuel etc...) IF yes replace or clean plugs and retest for starting. IF no spark is present at coil you need to scan computer and watch for rpm signal. IF no rpm signal, replace crankshaft sensor with OEM delco part. BIGGEST problem with these engines is Cap and Rotor burn out.

Pull one or two sparkplugs and check them for moisture; not fuel, but for water beads.
I don't know how long your engine ran after losing coolant but there is a chance that you lost the head gasket and have gotten water into the cylinders.

Galant Special Edition 1994 Motor does not start


this maybe caused by no fuel or faulty fuel pump, ignition coil, wire and plug crank position sensor. first check for spark by removing on spark plug wire and put a spark plug in the spark plug wire boot, donot touch the plug only the boot have someone crank the car over. if you see spark, that part of the ignition is good. if not, check the coil resistance if should 40 to 80 ohm with a volt meter pf not replace. if ok, but no spark check the igniton control madule make sure the coil and module are receiving current. if not check the fuse that feels them. if it is ok, check distributor cap and rotor. if rotor and cap are fine, check for fuel at either the fuel filter, the fuel return line or removing some spark plug and see if they are wet. if there is no fuel check the fuel pump and the fuse and relay that control the pump. if there is fuel with high pressure but there is no spark, check the crank sensor for signal with a volt meter while cranking the vehicle
