Question about Cars & Trucks
Ive did tuneup also new coil, battery, distributor, ignition module. New cap, wires, rotor. I replace ignition switch with a wrecking yard part. I havent check any of the fuel pump relays or cleaned terminals on ECU. I noticed a condenser thats wire to the coil. Could fhat be tne cause of the engine sbutting off when warm? Ive touched the coil, the ignition module to see if they are warm, but they are not. However the car usully starts after it sits for 10 min. If not it will if I spray starting fluid into intake. I had a broken wire to the temp gauge sending unit. I made that repair. I havent tested the cold start valve yet. Right now im going to check my fuzable links to fuel pump, also going to change fuel pump relays. I have several in my garage. Should I change the condenser that is wired to the coil? Its a very cheap fix. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hello! I've been there too. I guess you have touched your coil after the engine stops. If the coil is hot, usually the cause is a very high resistance in the high tension circuit. That is between the coil and spark plugs. Probably something makes a false contact or loose conection or the gap at the plugs it too big.
If your coil is cold, perhaps your coolant temperature sensor is bad. This sensor tells the ecu or the cold start valve to squirt more fuel. When it fails your engine can't start when cold or it dies when hot depending on the failure type. Another thing which can go wrong if your coil is cold can be the cold start valve. This is an auxiliar injector located at the throttle body. When it fails, it simply doesn't inject fuel or injects all the time! (Only 80's cars have cold start valve)
