1992 Mercury capri - Running great, then lost power, died. Started next day, very breif. Now will not start. I have replaced fuel pump and coil. No sparks from plugs.


The next thing to check or replace is the ignition module-the TFI module attached to the distributor. It can be tested for operation at a parts store. I believe the module is held by 7/32 inch screws.

While driving my 91 capri it just shuts off. no spuddering or anything?


Sounds like ignition module in distributor going bad...they are electronic and get heat sensitive...when they cool off a little the car starts and runs again...fairly simple to pull the distributor cap, rotor and then replace the module...Chris

Sorry I don't do text, because I don't want spam either... The most likely cause of your problem is a bad TFI (ignition) module. All of the engines used in Ford trucks in 1991 used the TFI modules. Some were distributor-mounted modules and some were fender-mounted modules. I cannot tell you where yours is actually located, because you did not bother to mention engine size. (Nice-to-know information - it helps a little if we know what we are working on) Anyway, That is the most likely cause of a no-spark condition. In fact, It has been so common with the Ford engines that Ford ended up settling in a class-action law suit due to the TFI modules repeatedly leaving people stranded. I personally had a Ford Ranger - replaced the TFI module about 6 times in the 7 years that I owned it...used to keep a spare in the glove box.

I am not getting any spark in my ignition system from a 1991 capri xr2. I have changed the coil, rebuilt the distributor, changed the cap and rotor button, and changed the spark plugs and wiring. It ran...


Did you replace the igniter (inside the distributer) and the ignition control module (on top of the distributer. Sometimes the control module gets overlooked...

Check to see if the rotor button is turning,that will tell you if the timing belt is broke or not,also,the ignition module tfi module is most likely the problem if the timing belt is not broke.

My '90 taurus quit running and won't start. it cranks, but won't fire. The battery is fine. my neighbor said something about a module? what and where is it and how do I test it?


He's talking about the TFI module located plugged on the bottom of the distributor. I would listen for the fuel pump if it is kicking on or not. If you turn the key forward don't start the car listen for fuel pump to kick on. If it's not kicking on then you have a bad fuel pump. Fuel pressure can be checked with a fuel guage on fuel rail pressure should read 30psi. TFI module can be check if you buy the scan tool for it. In the late 80's to early 90's the TFI module's would get hot and fail. Always keep and extra TFI module with you if that's the problem. Check for fuel first before doing the TFI module.
