SOURCE: engine died & wont start no spark ignition coil tested good

try your ignition module in the distributor much more likely. just install rebuilt distributor if that is the problem , if you just replace module the main distributor assem will **** out shortly after.
Make sure you check for broken timing belt also it is one of those two!

fuel pump is working but when accelerating it doesnt pump enough fuel up to the engine then it will fall on its face if it is a electric pump you may have to drop the tank if it is inside and replace it if it is on the engine replace it thats what is exactly wrong with it

SOURCE: one of the 3 ignition coils not firing. engine run

Most likely the ignition module the coils sit on is not firing that coil.....a 90% chance.
Instead of changing the coil......just change position of the coil on the module to check this.
After you get it running good......change the crank pickup....they should be changed on every tune up on the 3.8......

My 1989 pontiac grand prix keeps stalling once it is warmed up after about 15 minutes of idle.


No, not the oxygen sensor. A couple of things you need to make clear. What light flickers, then stays on? That can't be a sensor light, it would have to be the "check engine light" or an engine temperature light (for like when your cluster has no temperature gauge, but just the "red light").
At any rate, the sensor you changed is not the engine temp. sending unit for the instrument panel. I believe on your '89 there would be two sensors for temp. One is the CTS for the engine computer, and the other is a sending unit for the dash, probably a 1 wire connector. It could be at fault, but it wouldn't cause stalling, I do not think anyway.
If it stalls and won't restart until cooled, this is a symptom of loss of ignition (spark) caused by either a faulty coil, or faulty Ignition Control Module (the coil controller), or last a faulty Crank Position Sensor (this sensor used by computer to determine ignition spark timing). You could test if ignition is lost, by checking for spark right after the engine warms and then stalls. If you have no spark to a spark plug right after it stalls, this is the reason for stalling. Usually it is the crank sensor, rather than the ignition control module or an ignition coil. Your car has 3 coils anyway in a "coil pack", so if one coil went bad, you'd still have two good coils, but engine would only be firing on four of the six cylinders-could easily stall a car.
You should check for trouble codes whenever you have a problem. A code might have been set. Easy to check for codes on your car, just ask if you don't know how-only takes a jumper wire or even a paper clip works. good luck.

1991 Cadillac DeVille (has 110,000 miles on it) suddenly dies while driving. Starts and idles fine, but shuts off after driving only 1-2 blocks. What's wrong and how do we fix it?


There are many things that can contribute to this problem. It sounds like it may be ignition related. Possibly an ignition control module or ignition coil. The check engine light coming on while driving is the key to finding the problem. The light comes on when the computer finds a problem and will then store it in its memory. Have the codes checked for what the computer has found to be at fault and with a little diagnostics, should lead you to the problem

Truck dies when idling


HI
first I would like to tell you, do this procedure only if the 5th digit of your VIN is C or K.

Description

The engine control module (ECM) learns the idle position of the throttle plate to ensure the correct idle. Anytime the throttle body is cleaned or replaced, the ECM must learn the new throttle position. The idle may be unstable or a DTC may set if the throttle position is not learned.

Conditions for Running the Throttle Learn Procedure

• DTCs P0101, P0102, P0103, P0107, P0108, P0111, P0112, P0113, P0506, and P0507 are not set.

• The engine speed is between 450-4,000 RPM.

• The manifold absolute pressure (MAP) is greater than 5 kPa.

• The mass air flow (MAF) is greater than 2 g/s.

• The ignition 1 voltage is greater than 10 volts.

Throttle Learn

Important: Do NOT perform this procedure if DTCs are set. Refer to Diagnostic Trouble Code

(DTC) List - Vehicle.

1. Start and idle the engine in PARK for 3 minutes.

2. With a scan tool, monitor desired and actual RPM.

3. The ECM will start to learn the new idle cells and Desired RPM should start to decrease.

4. Ignition OFF for 60 seconds.

5. Start and idle the engine in PARK for 3 minutes.

6. After the 3 minute run time the engine should be idling normal.

Important: During the drive cycle the check engine light may come on with idle speed DTCs. If idle speed codes are set, clear codes so the ECM can continue to learn.

* If the engine idle speed has not been learned the vehicle will need to be driven at

speeds above 70 km/h (44 mph) with several decelerations and extended idles.

7. After the drive cycle, the engine should be idling normally.

* If the engine idle speed has not been learned, turn OFF the ignition for 60 seconds

and repeat step 6.
8. Once the engine speed has returned to normal, clear DTCs.
Good Luck

1998 corolla runs fine but if you turn the headlights on or use the signal light the motor dies


the battery voltage is dropping below 10vdc.

use a voltmeter , walfart $10

see it drop below 13.3vdc? running?, that means the Alternator

system is messing up, if true, ask for help.

the head lights and heater fan suck about 20 amps on,

and a weak battery is now overloaded.

or main power feed to the ignition is corroded., even

simple battery lugs corroded. cause this.

but the Voltmeter never lies

one easy trick is use said meter at the cig lighter socket

turn key on, see 12.6v (charged battery is that)

then HL and fan, still near 12v?

see charge lamp on dash glow? it must. if not fix that.

then start engine, now it must be 13.3v to 15vdc or the

charge system is failing,

is the charge lamp on , running engine, fix that next.

(battery= charge lamp)

the alternator belt must not be loose

and engine RPM hot above 800RPM,

F350 will not stay running, seems no gas getting to engine; was running fine until I put gas into it an shortly afterwards it started but would not idle over about 200rpm, no power, and died


Check your battery connections and have a local auto parts dealer check your altinater. Possible also is the serpinetine belt is bad and slipping. All three things are questionable. I think this because of the power window issue, they take alot of amps to raise. Weak charging system sounds like the issue.

1994 Ford Ranger Starts runs for 3-4 minutes then dies, changed ignition mod, fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel pump relay,checked vac hoses, totally lost!!!!!


As with any no-start or stall problem you will need to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition issue.
The high idle usually means you have a vac leak or a problem with the throttle body or idle air control valve. The control valve is how the computer controls the idle speed.
You'll need to watch the fuel system and spark to see which is being affected when the engine dies.
You might want to hook a test light up to the coil to see if it is loosing voltage for example.

Car dies but it starts after 4 minutes or less


If the engine is failing that fast, it is because something is getting too hot, then it allows the engine to run once it cools off. I believe you might have been on the right track with the ignition coil, and would be looking at the spark plugs, myself. Let us know if you need anything else!

1993 Mercury Sable won't stay running


Seems that the fault relates to heating, check if the fuel pressure is dropping when the engine heats up, allow the car to idle so as to confirm . Also this will indicate if there is failure of the ignition system, This can fault in the ignition , failure of the HT coils.
What is important is your observation to the case before any part is replaced.

Car dies, but when I charge the battery the 1990 trans sport van dies. first the interior lights stay on then engine won't turn off so I have to disconect the battery for the van to stop running


The interior light and ignition can not be related. Just coincidence.

The interior light has a 3 position switch, off, on with door switches, and on all the time. So either a door switch is shorted on, or the switch by the lamp is shorted to the always on position.

The ignition is weird but easily diagnosed. First check that the ignition switch itself turns on and off, by using a test light.
If that is normal, then take out the ignition control unit and have a place like Autozone test it. It has a relay the ignition switch is supposed to turn on and off, and it could stick on, even after switch is off.
