I supose that you are getting a spark at the spark plugs when the engine is cold or no.???
Have you checked the distributor cap and spark wires?
Finally do you mean to say that you have changed the ignition module ? that's that black/grey rectangular like unit that held down by two screws.

Why won't my 2004 nissan frontier start?


At the beginning you say lots of fire but then no fire and you replaced rotor and cap no fire?
Check the wiring to the dist. and inside for anything loose that could make contact and then loose it. No I do not think its your key system.
Also fix the knock sensor, it has to do with the fuel system.
Hope this is helpful Mike

Have replaced the starter solenoid, spark plugs, plug wires, fuel filter, air filter, water pump and battery all within the last two months. When the truck gets hot it will not crank. Has electrical power,...


If you haven't already done so, replace the distributor cap and rotor. There is most likely corrosion inside the cap that is causing a crossfire condition.

This is a common problem on that engine.

Don't know why being hot would aggravate it, but start with the cap.

Won't run, got fuel, got spark from coil to distributer but will not fire. Tried new plugs, fuel filter and dust. cap. No go.


You may want to change your rotor bug in distrubtor,If this don't work you may have bent or wornout shaft goig down from distrubutor inside motor. But if your getting fire to the coil but not the distrubtor i think the rotor bug will fix it. Good luck to you.

It dies after about thirty minutes, then it won't start until it cools back down


How old are the spark plugs, cap and rotor?? If over 2 years i would replace them. Also you may want to test and replace the ignition module. Sounds like it breaks down due to heat when the engine is warm and needs to cool down before starting again.

Running rough ,no power back fires sometimes while exceleration. new plugs,plug wires ,cap,rotor,o2 sensor, fuel filter firing order is right ...


Check Alternator for bad diodes and A/C output,
you shouldn't have

Check fuel pump--with a scope, to see if that
is getting ready to fail

Exhaust Converter- most likely clogged,thus
no power & all the other issues

Timing Chain --loose ?
Rock crank back and forth
Check timing with light, half way thru
firing order,should be same as on #1

1995 f-150 dies while driving


Check for a plugged fuel filter. If that is OK, then it is probably a bad fuel pump. Once it cools down. then it starts to work again.
