I have a 94 chevy chyenne 6 cylinder that starts and runs until it gets hot and then it dies. after it sets it will start again. I was told by a friend it might be the coil in the distributor.


the way i would check this is too use timing light or a spark tester on the coil wire run motor until it stalls check for spark @ ignition coil if the pickup coil is failing you wont have any spark bare in mind the ignition module can do the same thing so can the ignition coil. the part in the distubutor is called the pickup coil there is couple ways to test this. there are wires going to the coil that come from distubutor one wire pulse fires the coil there is a wire by the coil its a tach test lead you hook up a 12 volt test light to battery positive and check for pulses after the stall ocurrs. also test before stalls so you know what to exspect.if the pulse trigger stop its either the pickup coil or the ignition module.hope this helps Thunderboltz

My Lincoln Towncar is having a problem starting and running. It's making a swooshing sound and dies out. As if there isn't enough air getting to the engine. Can anyone help me please?


Check a spark plug wire fire spark (Autozone has a tool to do this safely for around $10) if no spark test the input wire at the coil, if there is power at the input plug (red wire) Replace the coil!

Die for a few hours


Check the battery and the alternator. Sounds like maybe electrical. Also the coil. I had a car once that the coil was bad and it had simular problems.

fdarrin, The first thing I would like to try is to take a pump water spray bottle filled with water. On a dry day when the engine is running fine, have the engine running and begin to "mist" water with the spray bottle on small sections of the ignition coils. You want to see if you can recreate the problem. Continue to spray the coils, spark plug wires and spark plugs and sensors until you get the problem to reoccur. It should help you narrow down were the problem might be. A cracked coil tower or coil is possible.
Let me know.
Regards.

It seems you have a timing problem. Have the engine timed properly. If that does not work it could be a craked rotor or distributor cap. have all these checked.
