    i've been having the same problem, i tried a new ignition module and i tried turning it over and got it to spark once or twice and then i walked away and came back and it wouldn't spark anymore, hopefully someone has a solution.

This also happened to my '95 mustang 5.0L I was actually driving when it lost power. Take the cap off of the distributor and see if the shaft wiggles. The distributor shaft in the mustangs are the weakest point of the engine. If the shaft wobbles the rotor will wobble hitting the points and may break the rotor. All the metal grinding will put little metal shavings in the housing where the magnetic pick-up will attract them, this is the problem. You can replace the magnetic pick-up but if the shaft is moving around you will need a new distributor all around.

    Other things to look for are also the obvious plugs, wires, coil, and ignition module.

Pulled the motor out of automatic 98 base v6 mustang and put the motor into a standard 98 base v6 mustang and now its not firing, what could be the problem?


Crank sensor, coil, ignition module, Or the distributor, If it has one. This for fire to the spark plugs. Being both were 98's. You could have purchased a bad engine. Check compression.

Why wont my 95 thunderbird stay running after five mins


I would look towards the ignition module. It is what fires the injectors, you can have spark but a no run situation because of no fuel injectors.

My 4 cyl mustang is working with only one cylinder spark plugs, cables and ignition coils are new what is it?


When you have Coil Packs not firing Spark... it's usually due to one of two reasons: 1.) the Coil Pack is BAD 2.) the Ignition Control Module (ICM) has fried internally and is not activating that specific Ignition Coil within the Coil Pack ...The most common is the ICM ...The probable reason your catalytic conv. gets red hot is due to raw gas being dumped through the exhaust from the no fire on your cyl... Running it like that can cause severe damage to your conv...

Insert each wire on the proper terminal of the ignition coil. Ensure that the coil boots are fully seated and both locking tabs are engaged. The terminals are identified on the ignition coils. Install wires as shown in the illustration. The 2.3L firing order is 1-3-4-2 for both ignition coil assemblies.

Distributorless Ignition System In the distributorless ignition system (DIS), all engine timing and spark distribution is handled electronically with no moving parts. This system has fewer parts that require replacement and provides a more accurately timed spark. During basic operation, the EEC-IV determines the ignition timing required by the engine and a DIS module determines which ignition coil to fire.

Components
The distributorless ignition system (DIS) for the 2.3L twin spark plug engine consists of the following components:
  • Crankshaft timing sensor
  • DIS module
  • Two ignition coil packs
  • Spark angle portion of EEC-IV
Crankshaft Timing Sensor
The crankshaft timing sensor is a dual hall effect magnetic switch, which is actuated by the dual vane cup on the crankshaft pulley hub assembly. This sensor generates two separate signals, PIP (profile ignition pick-up) and CID (cylinder identification). The PIP signal provides base timing and RPM information, while the CID signal is used to synchronize the ignition coils. Initial timing (base timing) is set at 10 degrees BTDC and is not adjustable. Ignition Coil Packs
Two ignition coil packs are used for the 2.3L dual plug engine. The two ignition coil packs are triggered by the DIS module and are timed by the EEC-IV. Each coil pack contains two separate ignition coils for a total of four ignition coils. Each ignition coil fires two spark plugs simultaneously, one spark plug on the compression stroke and one on the exhaust stroke. The spark plug fired on the exhaust stroke uses very little of the ignition coils, stored energy, and the majority of the ignition coils, energy is used by the spark plug on the compression stroke. Since these two spark plugs are connected in series, the firing voltage of one spark plug will be negative with respect to ground, while the other will be positive with respect to ground. Refer to thePowertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis Manual for additional information on spark plug polarity. DIS Module
The main function of the DIS module is to switch between ignition coils and trigger the coils to spark. The DIS ignition module receives the PIP and CID signals from the crankshaft timing sensor, and the SPOUT (spark out) signal from the EEC-IV module. During normal operation, PIP is passed on to the EEC-IV module and provides base timing and RPM information. The CID signal provides the DIS ignition module with the information required to switch between the coils for cylinders 1 and 4 and the coils for cylinders 2 and 3. The SPOUT signal (from the EEC-IV) contains the optimum spark timing and dwell time information. The dwell time is controlled or varied by varying the duty cycle (duration) of the SPOUT signal. This feature is called CCD (computer controlled dwell). Therefore, with the proper inputs of PIP, CID and SPOUT the DIS ignition module turns the ignition coils on and off in the proper sequence for spark control. CID is also sent to the EEC-IV micro-processor to allow for Bank to Bank fuel control. Failure Mode Effects Management
During some DIS system faults, the Failure Mode Effects Management (FMEM) portion of the DIS ignition module will maintain vehicle operation. If the DIS ignition module does not receive the SPOUT input, it will automatically turn the ignition coils on and off using the PIP signal. However, this will result in fixed spark timing (ten degrees BTDC) and a fixed dwell time (no CCD). If the DIS ignition module does not receive the CID input during engine cranking, random coil synchronization will be attempted by the module. Therefore, several start attempts (cycling the ignition from OFF to START) may be required to start the engine. If the DIS module loses CID input while engine is running, the module will remember the proper firing sequence and continue to fire to maintain engine operation. Dual Plug Inhibit
Dual Plug Inhibit (DPI) is a function of the EEC-IV that is only used when the vehicle is being started at temperatures -7° C (20° F) and below. During engine cranking, the EEC-IV will only fire the spark plugs on the right hand side of the engine. When the engine has started, the EEC-IV will send a signal to the DIS module to start normal dual plug operation. Ignition Diagnostic Monitor
The Ignition Diagnostic Monitor (IDM) is a function of the DIS module. The DIS module sends information on system failures to the EEC-IV which stores the information for diagnostic self test. The IDM signal also is used to drive the vehicle instrument tachometer, and test tachometer for system

The engine will rotate but will not fire, and we want to know the proper way to check the ignition module on the 94 3.8 v6 mustang. and we just want to get the problem fixed so I can drive my baby.


Ignition Module is actually a class C amplifier. It amplify signal instead of music. Class C amplifier are very efficient type of ampifier. They are used to drive the flyback transformers in a television to create high voltage for the screen. In a car it drives the ignition coil to produce high voltage for the spark plug.
You can't test them unless you know electronics, but you can do an elimination process. Remove the ignition coil from the car, and bench test it. Note the postive and negative terminals. connect a spark plug to the output. and ground the spark plug at the negative side of the two terminals. Apply 12 volts to the terminal, then take off the positive side, as the voltage collapses a high voltage is induce firing the spark plug. The most likely item to go bad in an ignition system is the coil or the ignition module since they work the hardest. If the coil tested good you are almost sure it is the module.

No spark


When you installed the ignition module did you put the grease on the bottom side. You may want to inspect your coil, if you own a multimeter, you can primary and secondary sides. Also check out condition of cap and rotor,plugs and wires.

Can't start my 1987 mustang


Inside the distributor car is a small rotor that spins. It may be corroted, causing it not to fire the plugs. They are only a few dollars at a parts store (around $5-$10.) It comes right off.
