Question about Cars & Trucks
Initially had rough idle intermittently. Then, lost power on the highway had to tow home. Replaced plugs and wires, coil pack, throttle position sensor, map sensor, fuel injectors and catalytic converter. Problem was still intermittent with black exhaust and periodic low power. No codes. Replaced crankshaft position sensor and now it won't start at all. Any ideas?
You may want to look into ignition module on side of distributor. Especially if it dies after its wamed up. Good luck.

If you can get a fuel pressure gauge, check and see if the pressure is 16 to 24 lbs after the engine has warmed up.
I would connect the pressure gauge when the engine is cold, make sure it does not leak or touch anything hot, place the gauge between the hood and the windshield and drive the vehicle until it is at the temperature you feel it "starts hard". Shut the engine off and try to repeat the no start or hard start and make sure the pressure is correct.
Also, when you shut the engine off, watch the pressure and make sure it holds and does not drop to (0 LBS) of pressure.
One last question, has the fuel filter been changed in the past 30K.
Let me know.
