I have a 1993 Toyota Celica ST, 1.6. A few days ago my car begun losing power and ended up turning off. I tried starting again after letting it sit and it would make it down the road a few miles before...


To test a altinator the easy way without special tools, start the car, remove the negative battery cable. If it stays running, the altinator is good. I had the same type of problems. It's probably your ignition coil/coils going bad. Try replacing it and cleaning inside distributer cap & rotor.

Ram 1500 239 runs about 8 to 12 miles then backfires and looses power let sit a while and run good for acuople more miles before running bag again


It sounds like your ignition coil is overheating. Once it cools down it will fire properly until it gets hot again. Replace the ignition coil and you should be all set.

I have a1997 buick 3.8 car run like **** code reader said missfire on on more then 1 cylinder went to start again and wont crank like it has to much comp batt and starter good


If it is a p0300 code I would look first at the coil(s). My 2002 has 3 coils (2 cylinders per coil). I just went through this problem with my 2002 with the 3.8 engine. I bought one coil and tested it in each spot. No change. Underneath the coils is the ignition control module. That was my problem and I suspect yours. It costs about $140. It is pretty easy to replace if you are a DIY person.

235k miles. cut off one time going down road, immediately restarted. a week later after cutting off would not restart in 8 long cranks. 5 mins later cranked. next morning after starting 2 different time...


I have seen crank sensors go and leave no codes, but, likely the fuel pump is going away...they get hot and seize, then cool down and work again. I would not replace either without proper testing only because parts are expensive and there are other heat sensitive components in there. (coil etc) Be aware that it will check out good if it is running right while tests are being done.

exposure to heat, weather,salt in winter and water make them more susceptible to failure I would change them knowing that my others failed

Car had ignition coil replaced for 2nd time in a year


The crank sensor is causing the car to die. When it gets hot the resistance builds up and it will not read the crank signal. Then the car will die. When it cool the sensor will read again. You wont get spark if the crank sensor is not reading the ecm doesnt see the signal and will not allow the coil to fire.
