No one can give you an exact answer for your problem. The reason is that with computer controlled systems, the only way to get a good and valid answer is by doing the appropriate testing.
If you know anyone that has a code scanner, it's a good idea to begin by scanning for failure codes. If not, get yourself either a haynes or chlton manual (of the two I prefer chilton as their wiring diagrams are far better) and a digital multi-meter. The manual will give you test procedures and expected results.
Though your problem can be related to a number of things, the most common are a crank position sensor or cam sensor that has gone out of range. A bad fuel pump can also do that. Before testing, make sure that the battery is fully charged, all fuses are good and all relays are in working condition.

02 sensor is not you main problem.
Have you got good spark and fuel pressure when it acts up or quits?
Is it dead now or just acting up?

Pull the throtle body and replace the base gasket to start with.
Clear codes and see what comes back.

Check fuel pressure when it quits.
Post back fuel pressure readings.

Get some good repair info on the code for fuel pump relay and fuel pump and fuel pressure.

I have a 1992 gmc sonoma and it starts fine when its cold and runs good but when it warms up it dies and wont stay running and sometimes wont start till it sits for 15 20 min


sounds like a bad ignition module check for spark when it dies if you do not have spark at plugs check between coil and coil wire if still no spark most likely module it is under rear of distributer cap resembles a black wafer board with two electrical plugs

Car started and ran fine, quit while driving and now there is no spark and turns over.


Hello first of all

In reading your issue at hand not having no spark there is only a few things that can cause this being that its a 1988 car i will list below what you need to go over and check.

1.spark plug wires
2. distributor cap
3. ignition rotor
4. coil pick up
5. faulty distributor

That being said most are a easy and cheap fix plug wires run about 20-35 bucks autozones duralast brand , distributor cap runs between 7-18 bucks , ignition rotor 3-8 bucks , coil pick up about 15-30 bucks all at autozone.

Now there is no real way to tell if there bad but a good examination of the distributor cap and rotor should tell you corroded inside cracked worn down.

i would start with distributor cap , ignition rotor, coil pick up if the car starts after this replace spark plugs wires. If that does not fix it most likely you distributor is faulty itself.

i hope it helps if so could you leave me so 4 thumbs up feedback thanks so much

Toyota Tercel '92 keeps quitting


This sounds exactly like a faulty ignition coil.

The coil is pretty easy to change. Just obtain a replacement, and observe how the existing coil is fitted. Detach any wires fitted to the existing coil, and plug them into the placement. Then unbolt the old coil, and bolt the new one into place.

It will only take you 10-15 minutes or so to replace the coil.

1996 chevy cavalier wont fire


Need to actually,physically,check spark.Pull a plug wire off the plug,insert a medium size phillips head screwdriver into the spark plug wire boot,making sure it clicks in and engages.Lay the screwdriver's metal shank about a 1/4" from a metallic ground source (not the fuel line).Have someone crank the car over while you are looking for an arc between the screwdriver and ground.No arc...no spark...cheap easy way to check for spark and eliminate or not,the ignition system.
