SOURCE: Turns over but back fires through carb replaced

You have done everything but what was needed. Whenever the engine backfire, it is always the timing problem It is out and must be set right. Please set the timing of the vehicle.

SOURCE: 1988 Jeep Wrangler starting problems. I replaced

you are saying it is getting spark, and fuel, right? If it is getting spark, and fuel in to the throttle body, check compression-make sure the Mass Air Flow sensor is plugged in, and double check your spark-you say you replaced all those ignition items, but do not say that you have spark.

Where is the ignition module. Can I get to it from under the hood? Should I replace the Crank module when I replace the ignition module?


Hi.

The ICM is located under the hood, next to the coil pack and spark plug wires. Here the part: Pontiac Grand Am Ignition Control Module (ICM).

If you ar having distribution problem and misfire check also the crankshaft position sensor. It signal is used to control coils and sparks.

My 1988 Jeep Cherokee 4.0L died on me coming home from work. I have no spark at the spark plugs. I have replaced the coil/control module assembly with a used unit as well as the camshaft position...


I am experincing the same problems with my 1988 jeep Cherokee 4.0. It died coming home one day,I replaced the motor and it turns over but gets no fire. I have repaced the control module, and distributor brand new my coil is testing good. I am wondering if it is my ECU also. The plug coming off distributor has one wire showing bright on test light, and one showing a dim light on test light and was wondering if you have checked these wires? Trying to figure out what will make these both shine bright.

1988 Oldsmobile Delta 88' car stalls out. Coil pack might need to be replaced


Check the spark on each plug wire with a calibrated spark tester.One can be bought at most parts stores.If two plug wires that are next to each other are bad then replace coil pack.There may also be a bad ignition module.Also check the crankshaft position sensor.

96 2.0 jetta. started up as usual then died 2 mins later. Will crank but not turn over, no spark from the plug wires. what should i look for?


Are the injectors pulsing on and off? If not, it is your Crankshaft position sensor or the wiring to it.

Is the ignition system coil on plug or what?
