Question about 1983 Dodge Pickup

1 Answer

Running trouble I have replaced the following items the resistor, ing. coil, distributor, ing. control module and the ing. switch. The problem happen after the motor has been ran for about 5 to 10 miles. The motor start runnig rough and tring to die. It will back fire throw the carb. the coil feels really hot. If you shut the pickup and let it cool down then it well run good for a good 5 to 10 miles.

How do replace ignition control module in 1998 K-1500 5.0 liter vortec


This system does not use the ignition module used on the DI systems in the past. The VCM controller now controls the ignition control (IC) and bypass functions.
The crankshaft sensor, located in the front engine cover, is perpendicular to a target wheel attached to the crankshaft. The target wheel is equipped with slots situated 60 degrees apart. As the crankshaft rotates, the target wheel rotates past the crankshaft position sensor. The rising and falling edges created by the slots cause a signal to be sent back to the VCM. This signal occurs three times per crankshaft revolution and is referred to as the 3x signal for V6 applications. The signal occurs four times per crankshaft revolution and is referred to as the 4x signal for V8 applications.
The VCM then utilizes this 3x (V6) or 4x (V8) signal in order to provide the correct spark to the engine by way of the single coil driver module. The single coil driver module is basically an electronic switch that when commanded by the VCM, causes the primary coil voltage to breakdown, energizing the secondary coil and providing a spark via the coil wire to the distributor cap. The distributor consists of the following components:
The system consists of the following components:
?€¢
Vehicle control module (VCM)


?€¢
Distributor


?€¢
Ignition coil driver module


?€¢
Ignition coil


?€¢
Crankshaft position (CKP) sensor


Now which part do you want to replace ?

?€¢
Cap and rotor


?€¢
Camshaft position sensor


?€¢
Gear drive and shaft

The camshaft drives the distributor shaft which rotates providing a spark to the correct cylinder by way of the cap and rotor. The camshaft position (CMP) sensor functions much like the crankshaft sensor previously described but provides only a 1x signal to the VCM. That is, for every 2 rotations of the crankshaft, there is 1 rotation of the camshaft. Note that the camshaft position sensor will not affect driveability. The sole purpose of the camshaft position sensor is to provide the VCM with the necessary information for the misfire diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs).

Where does the power come from for the coil


depending on the year of the car and whether it is a ECM controlled engine. The power for the coil normally comes from the ignition switch from both the start and run positions or from the ecm. IT passes through the coil and down to the distributor either to the points or the electronic module in the distributor. Engines not using an ecm have normally 2 wires to the coil on one terminal. One wire is for the start (12 volts) and the other is for the run (7.5 volts ) as it passes through a resistor or resistor wire. With an ECM on the engine you will have to get the coil voltage reading from the workshop manual

Pickup coil


Hi sugriva 108,

I saw your comment on one of my other posts;

yes, if you have battery power at the injector, but when you check for "pulse" from the computer on the ground side of the injector and the test light does not blink, the most common problem is a failed distributor module.
The pick-up coil in the distributor can cause the same symptom. It is the pickup coil that the injector and spark control signals originate from it is connected directly to the distributor module. The module is what sends the signal to the ecm for fuel control and timing advance and also pulses the ignition coil. Some people call the distributor module the "ignition control module". However, it affects fuel as well as ignition, which is why I refer to it as simply the "distributor module".

If the module is bad, you can replace only the distributor module. If the pickup coil is bad, you will either have to disassemble the entire distributor to replace the coil (the hard way) or you can simply buy a remanufactured distributor. It is less expensive to replace only the coil, but the coils usually go bad as a result of worn distributor bushings and it is usually more trouble than it is worth by the time you get everything right.

If you have lots of time to work with me and do some electrical testing, I can help you determine if it is the module or the coil. However, if you just want to get your vehicle running as fast as possible, the easiest and quickest way is to go ahead and get a remanufactured distributor and be done with it. They are not real expensive. AutoZone lists the distributor for your vehicle for under $100 (click link below)

89 mustang gt won't start only has spark when letting the key off


Use a 12 volt test light to check for voltage at the coil with the key turned to start. Connect the test light clip to engine ground and back probe the red wire terminal on the coil. If there is no power there, your problem is your ignition switch. If there is power there, back probe the same wire at the ignition module. If no power at the ignition module, the wire must be broke between the coil and the module. If there is power, the problem may be the engine control module. Let me know if you have questions.

What wires do we have to run to make a chevy 327 start and run with a points distrubitor .


This should be simple, run one wire from a switch on hot thru a ballast resistor(available from NAPA for about 15 dollars) to the Positive side of the ignition coil. Make sure this wire stays hot while the engine is turning over, if this is in a 85 truck use the wire that hooked to the origional distributor. Then run a wire from the negative side of the coil to the points, thats all there is to it. Just curious as to why you are using points instead of the HEI distributor that came in the truck. You only need to change the module from the 5 pin module to the 4 pin module, and this will eliminate the computer control in the ignition system.
