I have a 92 olds regency elite. The engine runs rough when it gets warm and the ignition modual keeps going out. I have replaced it three times and seems to fix it for a little while but it keeps acting up after a few thousand miles. Is it possible the engine is running to warm and causing the modual to go out?

92 or 98>?
your missing operator guide, tells you to get the car service fast for any oil or overheat warnings.
if that is not possible then buy the FSM and read that or login to
alldata.com and read.
there are only 2 paths, you do , they do.
you never said which person you are,
or a 3rd possible, you want us to guess... i pass
because the combustion inside the engine is going wrong the quantity of air getting inside is not the needed quantity maybe less than or more in cold will cause such problem once the engine warm up than the engine temperature is up you will not find this problem because the point of firing will be near
Well, for starters, your problem got posted under 1985 Oldsmobile 98 - then you said it was a 95 Oldsmobile 98 Regency Elite (HUGE difference between 85 and 95)...then it would be REALLY nice to know which engine we are talking about.
I'll just go with what you said last: 1995 Oldsmobile Regency Elite (Two engine possibilities)
If you have the 3.8L Supercharged engine (VIN CODE "1") it is on the left side of the engine near the oil filter.
If you have the non-supercharged 3.8L (VIN CODE "K") there are TWO of them. One is near the oil filter and the other one is in about the same location on the other side of the engine block.
Please also note that MOST fault codes for knock sensors are not caused by the knock sensors themselves. (they do fail, but it is very rare.) Usually there is either a wiring problem to the knock sensor, or the engine has internal problems causing a "knocking" or "ticking" noise which causes the engine computer to "think" that there is a problem with pre-detonation causing an "ignition ping". The code sets when the computer has retarded the ignition timing as far as it can and the "knock" or "ping" does not go away....usually it doesn't go away because it is not caused by ignition timing. The knock sensor is just doing its job and reporting the knock. It does not know the difference between a knock caused by ignition and a knock caused by internal engine problems.
Check your electric choke. Unplug it and start the car. If it makes no difference that may be your problem. If it does make a difference once you un plug it that may be your problem. If it were a sensor it would not get better after 15 minutes. However if it were the choke it would get better as the engine warms to operating temperature.
