Random shutdown


check battery connections at battery and starter ends. Check fuel filter, fuel pump relay, or maybe fuel pump is too weak to run engine at speed or under load. Can be coil or igniton module, map sensor, crank/camshaft sensors. Your description is pretty generic, so it possibly could be one of those "search till you find it" type repairs. Keep this in mind: In order for an engine to run it must have three things. Fuel, air, and spark. Air is easy to get. Fuel problems could only be the relay, pump, fuse, injectors. Spark is more hard to get, as you also need spark at the right time. So check igniton last, it gets real costly as you go. Coil, ignition module, any and all sensors ect.

Plug only spark ones and not continios


The igniton system may be faulty. Things to check or replace in the order that I would check them are here: They are the coil, igniton module, cam and crankshaft sensors, map sensor. Your car may be out of time due to a broken timing belt/chain, or it may have been loose and jumped a few teeth on their cogs. Check engine timing and condition of belt. These are not all of the igniton components, but the most common items that go bad. The rest of the components and sensors shouldn't cause your car not to start, but affect driveabiliy.

MY 92 OLDS 88 HAS NO SPARK.HAVE. HAVE POWER GOING TO ECM.HAS 3 COILS..FIGURE THEY ALL CANT GO OUT AT SAME TIME.REPLACED CRANKSHAFT POS. SENSOR AND HARMONIC BAL. 8 MONTHS BACK


Sounds like the ignition module or the crank sensor. Even though the crank sensor is fairly new doesn't mean anything. Remove the ignition module and take it to a parts store. Most parts stores can test it.

Hard to start runs ok after you get it started


Could be fuel pump relay, Plugged fuel filter, Bad spark plugs.
You can also check your crank sensor if you have coil packs and igniton module to make sure it is sending a signal every time the crank rotates thus providing spark to ignition module, plugs wires, and to plugs.
You can check the relay itself with an ohmmeter, place tester in ohm setting, place one probe on each side of relay

Misfire #3 cylinder


Has anyone found the problem? My 2003 has #3 cyclinder misfire and I have replaced the plugs and wires. It runs rough at idle but smooths out at highway speed. Anyone have any knowledge on this? This sounds like a common problem.

Try another coil and mount it correctly. Check wires for power.
