It will be one of two areas. It will either be on the drivers side fender well, attached to an aluminum finned base (heat sink) or it will be attacked to the side of the distributor. Remember that if you remove it and replace it with the old one or a new one. You must put grease between the two surfaces.
Also Auto-Zone and some other part stores can test that module. Have it tested before you go buy a new one.

If the vehicle does have EEC-IV (Electronic Engine Control-4) then the ignition system actually used an ignition module on the side of the distributor and it is most likely faulty, and when the ignition module gets too hot the engine will stop running. Also, remove the distributor cap and inspect the connector from the pick-up coil/stator where the ignition module connects to it, and if the connector is dark or burnt looking then also replace the pick-up coil/stator or the entire distributor. Here are some images to assist you and notice the white connector on the ignition pick-up coil/stator and when that connector turns dark or burnt looking then it is faulty.

If the vehicle is not EEC-IV equipped (see emission label under the hood) then the ignition module will be mounted away from the distributor and usually located out on the driver side fender well area and can have two or three wire connectors, and it can be removed and tested for free at most auto part stores.

Also, there is the possibility that there might be a faulty ignition coil and it should be checked using an ohm meter (let me know if you require assistance with the proceedure), or a fault with the fuel pump and a fuel pressure gauge would be the best way to determine if the fuel pump is faulty, and the ECU (Engine Control Unit) might be faulty. However, the symptoms that you describe seem to be more that of the ignition module. A Ford ignition module wrench should be used to remove and install the ignition module on the distributor, and most auto part stores will have one for under five dollars.

Most auto part stores will test the ignition module for free if you remove it from the distributor and take it to them.

If you do purchase a new ignition module be sure that it does come with die-electric grease and be sure that the metal contact surface of the ignition module is completely coated with the die-electric grease because it is a heat sink and the ignition module will burn up without it, and be careful not to over-tighten the ignition module or it will be damaged.

If you are installing the old ignition module onto the distributor be sure not to forget to coat the metal contact surface with die-electric grease/compound or the ignition module will over-heat.

No spark


I would check the fuses and relay for the EEC IV. You probably have a bad TFI ignition control module, the gray box bolted to the side of the distributor. Auto Zone should be able to test it. Also, check the pick up coil inside the distributor.

Are plugs and wires good? Did you check distributor? Firing order correct-timing set right? Maybe some of the new parts are faulty? Are grounds all secure and are fuses good?
