Your vehicle does have an ignition module. It's located under the ignition coil pack. (the 3 ignition coils) It's not cheap to replace. AND it's a bad guess as being the cause of your sputtering problem. Charlie

Where is my electric connection to my core pack connected

Not sure what you are asking. The COIL pack has a wiring harness that plugs into the side. The coil pack gets power from the ASD relay and ground from the engine computer. The engine computer acts as the ignition module and decides when to fire the coils.

I changed a module on the ignition now it dont want to start

The module must be programmed (flashed) with the vehicles computer module. It requires a software program and special equipment only avail at dealerships and special mechanics that deal in automobile ignition systems.

My 2000 Nissan frontier runs great for about 15 minutes then starts sputtering tach starts jumping. Changed distributor cap & rotor button plug wires fuel filter & crank shaft position sensor. What...

I would want to monitor fuel pressure as the engine warms up. But it could also be a coil or ignition module problem, even a relay.
Any chance the check engine light is on ?

1996 ford ranger has crack in radiator. starting to stall is this a coincidence

1) Replace the radiator, it won't get better and will cause BIG problems later on, the plastic and aluminum radiators are fairly cheap (check rock auto for price)
2) Replace the TFI (thick film ignition) module mounted on the side of the distributor. Very common problem with Ford ignition systems
Something in the module opens when it gets hot, then works fine when it cools off. It's like someone turns the key off while driving, no warning, sputtering etc.You will need a thin wall 5.5 mm socket to change the module. Most auto part stores have a special wrench setup just for changing the module and it only costs a couple of bucks and makes the job a breeze. make sure you put plenty of dielectric grease on the mounting side of the module for proper installation (usually included with the module)

My truck wont start i dont know whats wrong with it but it cranks over but wont start

Have the Pick up coil tested. Take it in or try the following.
A pick-up coil, technically known as a stator, provides a low-voltage digital on-off signal to the ignition control module where it is interpreted as an RPM signal, also called PIP or profile ignition pick-up. The ignition module uses that info to decide when to fire the ignition coil. This signal from the pick-up is most likely a ground signal, but I suppose some systems might switch the positive on and off. You will have to use a special low-voltage test light(a regular 12 volt test light will not do), find the signal output wire from the pick-up, and measure the output while the engine is being cranked. You should see an on-off pulse indicated by the light blinking on and off. Remember, this is providing the stator has it's power supply and ground needed to operate, and that the distributor is turning as needed while the engine is being cranked.

1992 lumina starts, sputters, then dies. replaced the coil packs, plugs, wires, map censor, cleaned the maf censor. any ideas?

About the only things that you have not changed that would cause that problem are the fuel pump, the ECM, (Engine Control Module) or if your vehicle has one it could be the ignition module, and here is an image of what the ignition module will look like, and not all applications will use one.
