First replace the distributor cap, spark plugs wires and spark plugs, if you are still having the problem the ignition module is probably failing they have a tendancy to heat up then fail as they approach a certain temperature threshold, also make sure the plug going to the distributor is not corroded unplug and inspect clean and spray plug with electrical cleaner plug in then unplug a number of times to clean corroded plug connectors. Bring the jeep to Auto Zone for them to read any stored trouble codes to point you in the right direction this often help tremendously.

Engine died while driving, no spark, replaced coil, now starts, idles, runs well at low rpm, but misfires when accelerating. No check engine costs thrown. What should I check next.


Change your ignition module. The distributor is a weak point of the Honda, I will always change out the whole thing than just try the coil.

Next time it doesn't start, spray your plug wires and distributor cap with WD40. If it fires right up replace your plug wires. I had the same problem with my 3 cyl 1.0L .

Check to see how much spark you have. Spark should jump at least a 3/4" inch gap. If it only jumps an eighth to a quarter inch or less than you have weak spark. If the coil is external replace it if the coil is inside the distributor replace the distributor. I almost guarantee this is a week spark issue.

I have a 1984 Dodge d150 4x2 truck. I was driving down off the highway and i lost all power. i thought it was the fuel pump, i replaced it and gas flowed better. i started to drive again and i lost power...


have you checked for spark? check all the leads going to the coil from the battery and from the coil to the distributor, if any are loose or faulty it will cause you to lose all power, also check the terminals.

No spark to the plugs


Replace the ignition module in the distributor, the thump was probably the engine misfiring through the intake manifold. Considering the absence of spark changing the ignition module is the next step to take look on ebay motors to get the best price on parts, however I would still check with the local parts stores to see if there parts are competetively priced cosidering the shipping time from ebay can be up to 5 days.

Car just stopped running. Lost power suddenly.


Find an inductive pickup indicator for spark. Place on distributor cap to see if spark is at coil internal tower. If no spark at internal tower, look at ignition module or pickup coil. Ignition modules are prone to failure on 626's. But if you have spark at tower but not at the wire end, then your rotor is gone.
