Same thing happened to ours - probably the timing belt. New coil, cap, rotor, wires, hall sensor, and computer - still no spark. Had timing belt changed and presto - car starts.

Why would my 94 Plymouth Acclaim 2.5, 4 cylinder die while I'm making a left turn?

sounds like it could be the sock filter on the bottom of the fuel pump has come off, its purpose is to keep fuel in the sock at the pickup tube so it won`t suck air. when the sock comes off fuel will pull away from the tube allowing this to happen. will happen more when the fuel level is between almost empty and 1/2 a tank.

1992 Plymouth Acclaim While driving up the road

when you say coil, do you mean the ignition coil or the pick up coil (aka pickup module)? It is located under the rotor in the distributor-if you replaced the distributor (did you really?) it should have had a new unit in it, the only other thing I could guess is you have some sort of issue with a fuse or relay for the ignition.

Cant likes cross firing skipping when start and the whole tie, plugs wires cap and rotar button replaced

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

It can be a faulty ignition coil. If the coil is faulty the car's current flow tends to skip. Please do replace the ignition coil as a first course of action.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

My 1991 plymouth acclaim went dead and won't start. I dont't have fire to the distributor?

I had the same problem with my 1991 Plymouth Acclaim 3.0 liter engine. Check to see if your SBEC (computer located next to car battery) has gone out. Replacing it should solve your problem.

91 plymouth acclaim did out of nowhere.

Could possibly be the computer, but I would suspect the pick up on the distributor, or the distributor itself. Check for excessive play on the distributor, and replace the pickup in there if there is not much play, and then see what you have.

89 dodge d150 no fire

The pickup coil is magnetic so take a small screwdriver and place it on one of the points of the pole peice and see if it has a pull on it first. It may be that item that went bad from excessive heat. That takes away the magnetivity in the long run most of the time
