Try replacing the ignition module on driver side on top of the tire well this attached to the distributor, before you replace the distributor.

Before you go out and buy new parts,
check for oil and coolant leaks as well
as your oil and coolant levels
if you have higher miles on it,
you will go through both oil and coolant
like there is no tomorrow

that was the problem with mine;
cost me about $20 when the shop
was going to charge me over $1k
for a new radiator/coolant system

Car started knocking really bad got a cylinder 2 misfire code after opening coolant bleed valve with enging hot


Okay, it may be due to overheating, that may be the noise you heard, lets hope. first allow engine to cool, open radiator cap or the resivoir cap, which ever is the fill, remove the bleeder at top hose and fill radiator slowly until coolant comes out bleeder.

note if water pump was replaced due to leaking and engine was overheated at that time then it may be a good idea to replace the thermostat .
after filling is done start engine and allow it to run. watch temperature if temp start to climb past half way shut engine down and let sit for 5min. then restart and check level, in res do not open cap . feel air from fan and see if it is getting hot, this may take up to a half hour but do not drive,

A few questions, does this jeep have an electric fan?
when you heard the knocking was engine temp hot?
If you start jeep cold does engine knock?
Did this jeep get a new thermostat with waterpump job?
did it overheat when pump went bad and why did water pump get replaced?

sorry for all the questions ,just trying to get all the info to help you .

1991 buick regal starting and running problem


Sounds like your car is overheating. If you have a temp gauge it should show that. If you just have an idiot light, by the time it comes on it's already too hot to operate. AFTER the car is cooled down, open the radiator cap to see how much coolant has been lost. Chances are there is alot missing. Add WATER (no sense in adding coolant if it's going to leak out) and idle the car at home. Look underneath as it warms up to find where the leak is.

Engine stalling out when hot


I would have the control module checked. It is mounted to the back of the distributor. You can take it by any autozone to be tested. This component heats up and then starts to break down inside,, when it cools back off then you are able to start back up until it goes completely out.
