4 speed auto? Check the linkage from the transmission to the throttle body. See if the plastic clip broke that holds the linkage to the throttle body.

Chrylser Lebaron 1987 turbo 2.2 died while driving and now wont start back up, was told im not getting any spark to the coil. any suggestions? it was turning over and had power just wouldnt start. now...

On an '87 2.2 the most likely reason you are not getting any spark is that either the COIL has went bad, or the internal PICKUP COIL has went bad.

Both are a very easy fix. Both parts are cheap, and readily available from an auto-parts store.
Most auto parts stores can check your Ignition Coil for you, but won't be able to test your Pick-up Coil.

If it is the main ignition coil, then there are just two wires, and of course, the plug wire to the Distributer Cap. It will be located on the firewall, most likely.

If it is the Pickup Coil, it is under the Distributer Cap. Unplug the Coil. Just loosen the two screws that hold the cap down, then lift the cap up, and rotate it out of the way. Then, pull off the Rotor. Then, pull up on the Pickup Coil, and remove it. Installation is the reverse of removal. There are little tabs that are on the Rotor, and the Coil, and the Cap, so that you must put them in their correct position, (they only fit in ONE position) so make sure the parts are seated correctly, then tighten the two screws on the cap back down.

Now that your battery has died, you will have to either charge it up, or get a jump, after you have made the repairs.

If you are not at all mechanically inclined, I suggest you get a friend who IS to diagnose that this IS the problem, and to make these repairs, or you will have to have the car towed to a shop, and repaired there.

My 1990 3.3ltr skylark will turn over but it is not getting any fire from the distributor and plug wires and the coils all have continuity. Tried replacing the alternator but still no fire and won't...

try the rotor under the distributer cap, remove cap , remove rotor cap and replace, also note if it has black sooty marks on center cap known for fouling.
