First thing is to check for a crank sensor signal the crank sensor is located behind the harmonic balancer the signal can be checked at the ignition module the voltage while cranking should be 5 volts. up under the passengerside dash is the ecm their are some inline fuses worst case senario short to memcal which can be removed from ecm and found at junkyard for 20 to 40 bucks let me know if this works.

If there is spark out of one coil than its not the crank sensor.

does this have one coil assembly with 6 posts or are there three individual coils?

If it has three individual coils try swapping the coil that works with one that doesn't. If the one that wasn't working now works and the one that was working doesn't than you have a bad module. If the coil that was working still works and the coil that doesn't work still doesn't work than you have a bad coil.

If it has one coil with 6 posts I would replace the coil and the module. It is not uncommon for the coils to go bad and take out the module at the same time.

Im trying to change the ignition control module in my 1997 astrovan but i cant get it out


does it have the 6 cylinder engine with the 3 coil packs on top? If so, remove spark plug wires from coil packs, remove 2 screws that hold each pack down, remove coil packs (but remember to put everything aback as it was when finished! includes where wires were on coils), remove screw that holds the connector to the module, install new module to connector and reverse to install.

YOU NEED TO NUMBER TAG ALL SPARK PLUG WIRES ON COIL PACK MODULE IN ORDER SO YOU PUT THEM BACK IN ORIGINAL PLACE.REMOVE ALL PLUGS WIRES FROM COIL PACK.THEN DISCONNECT THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTORS ON COIL PACK MODULE THEN REMOVE COIL PACK.NOW YOU HAVE MORE ROOM TO GET TO BACK PLUGS.YOU NEED A LIGHT.A SMALL MECHANIC MIRROR.YOU NEED LONGER 3/8 EXTENSION.PROBABLY PLUG WIRE BOOT PULLER NOT MUCH ROOM TO PULL THE SPARK PLUG BOOT WITH HAND.

Ignition Coil - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Detach the 8 or 11-pin harness connector, as applicable, from the coil and module assembly.
  3. Remove the ignition assembly-to-camshaft housing attaching bolts.
  4. Carefully remove the ignition assembly from the engine.
If the spark plug boots present a problem coming off, it may be necessary to use a special removal tool, first twisting and pulling upward on the retainers.
  1. Remove the ignition coil housing-to-cover bolts/screws.
  2. Remove the cover from the coil housing.
  3. Detach the ignition coil harness connectors from the coil pack assembly.
  4. Carefully lift the coil pack out and remove the contacts and seals from the housing.
To install:
  1. Install new coil seals into the coil housing.
  2. Install the coil contacts to the coil housing and retain with petroleum jelly.
  3. Place the coil pack into the housing and connect the harness connectors.
  4. Assemble the cover to the coil housing and install the attaching bolts/screws. Tighten the attaching bolts/screws to 35 inch lbs. (4 Nm).
  5. Install the spark plug boots and retainers on the ignition assembly housing secondary terminals.
If the boots and retainers are not in place on the housing secondary terminals prior to installing the ignition assembly, damage to the ignition system may result.
  1. Position the ignition assembly to the engine while carefully aligning the boots to the spark plug terminals.
  2. Coat the ignition assembly-to-camshaft housing attaching bolts with an approved lubricant and install them into the housing.
  3. Tighten the attaching bolts to 16-19 ft. lbs. (22-26 Nm).
  4. Attach the harness connector to the ignition coil module assembly.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.
  6. Start the engine and check for proper operation and performance.

Hope this help to solve ypur problem (remember comment and rated this post).

1988 3.8 olds cutlass Ciera stalls, no spark until it cools down


Check the prrimary and secondary resistance on your coil. Also check the resistance of the plug wires and plug gap.

While driving, the engine dies.


I had the same thing happen on a 91 Olds 88. Replaced crank shaft position sensor, coil, and ignition module. That solved the problem. I think the culprit was the CSP Sensor, but changed all three so can't say for sure.
