That may mean the plug wires are bad and if you have a distrubitor cap then that may be bad...

1993 acura integra how can i check to see if i have spark coming from the distributor

The old school method was to insert a screwdriver into one of the spark plug wires and hold the metal shaft of the screwdriver near a metal surface nearby (about 1/4" distance). Be sure not to hold the screwdriver by the metal portion, hold the handle! Then have someone else turn the key to start while observing for a spark arcing from the screwdriver to the metal surface. You should see a nice blue arc. If none is observed while the engine is cranking, you have no electric current to the plugs, thus the engine will not fire. However if you do see the arc(s), then you can now focus more on fuel supply or lack of it.

1993 mercury village engine was running was driving down road it shut down, check engine light was on , friend said to change fuel pump and still no spark at engine plugs, what should i try next? is there...

Fuel pumps don't have anything to do with spark. Have the codes read. My guess you lost the crank sensor, ignition module, or coil. Check your fuses also.

Starts with no problem, however once I am driving down the road it can be any where from 3-10 miles the engine will shut off. I will wait between 10-20 minutes an it will start again an I will take off...

You need to get a spark tester and see if you are losing the spark when it fails.The stalling could be caused by ignition or fuel,or a bad crank or cam sensor..If there is spark,but it does not fire,spray throttle body cleaner into the intake and see if it starts.If it does,then maybe you have a bad fuel pump.You need to test for spark, and check fuel pressure,Take off the distributor cap and look for signs of arcing.Also,a bad coil that is temperature sensitive can cause a problem.

sounds like the engine is misfiring .. often thats caused by arcing of aging ignition wiring and distributer cap ... you can change the following items:
spark plugs , distributer cap, rotor and ignition wiring .. that often fixes problems with that year car ..

Abnormal spark 2.2L Celica

1998 Chrysler Concorde just stopped running while driving down the road. No warnings, the engine just shut down. The check engine light did not come on, the lights stayed on. When I tried to restart it, it turned over but would not start. What could have caused this?

!993 c 1500 5.0L no spark to spark plugs

Sound too familiar. Had my main computer go out. Took it in and had a diognostic test. Test passed, and was on my way home and it shut down again. Didn't trip any codes, because thats where all your codes are stored. Cost me about $400 usd at a GM certified mechanic. Good luck.22
