Hi Nsilguero,

I apologize for the delay in responding.

From your description, I'm leaning toward a timing chain problem, first stretching, then skipping and finally breaking.

If you're getting voltage to the coil and still getting no spark, there is a test I'd like you to try.

Take off the distributor cap and have someone turn the engine over while you eyeball the rotor. Is it spinning?

This going to take some back and forth interaction. Comment me back with the results. We will proceed from there.

Mike

Did you try the distributor? It could also be the ignitor chip.

Check the distributor cap. The "spider" caps on the newer chevy's are notorious for going bad. Hope this helps! ~Derek~

Not the IAC, or MAF, or 02

Does the Van Crank over?
Have you checked the IGN Relays? 1,2,and 3?
How did the Battery test out?
Anything below 11.9v battery is dead.
So I suggest that you do not throw any more parts and check the battery again.

Looks like you've covered the basics, make sure the firing order is correct with your spark plug wire replacement. Hope this diagram helps.

Where is the crank position sensor and the ignition module ,coil pack at on a 1998 Pontiac Montana transport


Your spark plug wires go to coils, coils sit on top of ignition module.You have two crank sensors, if crank sensor issue, check the 7x crank sensor, on back side of engine block, down low, two wire connector, wire colors, yellow and purple.

it sounds like your ignition module is failing, when the car dies, take off one spark plug wire from the coil and crank the key, see if there is spark. one other issue may be the crank position sensor which can also stop the module from firing a spark

You really should be using a good manual as a guide fro testing. For wiring diagrams chiltons is better than haynes. Have you checked power flow through the ASD relay??

Car had ignition coil replaced for 2nd time in a year


The crank sensor is causing the car to die. When it gets hot the resistance builds up and it will not read the crank signal. Then the car will die. When it cool the sensor will read again. You wont get spark if the crank sensor is not reading the ecm doesnt see the signal and will not allow the coil to fire.
