Stalls after starting ... wires loose on drivers side

Replaced plugs and wires ; fires properly but stalls unless I use 2 feet ... on the drivers side I have some loose wires ... down kind of low is a wire that has frayed and looks to belong to a socket but not sure where it would plug in and also have a green wire with a yellow end that looks like it should plug in somewhere but again unsure because my haynes manual doesn't help

It sounds to me like you have a vacume leak, as for the wire hanging down on drivers side check and see if your oil presure light or gadge is working its possible it it came off the sender..

I am throwing codes PO353, PO352, PO351 on my 2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport. 4.0 2WD. Its saying I have misfires. I was going down the road and the engine just stalled out. It would start right back up and idle...

Greetings john ingall Dec 12, 2016
piggy backers.. old. why not start a fresh post for only your car and not mix up other symptoms.
did play with the CMP or CKP. then cause p1391.
oops...a daisy.... you did it wrong.
Id not attack coil rail until the 1391 is cured, not me.

1: scan it ? post all DTC now.
2: DTCs trouble codes..????
3: is the ASD dropping off line, while running? (a key fact to know)
4: ever get a tune up this decade?????
5: spark gaps correct , to factory spec, and kept here doing repeated service? )
6: Do the scans show the IMMO tripping the ASD off line????
there are 8 reasons for ASD to trip , and cause a stall, all 8 are reported !
there are 50 other reasons for stalls, called misfiring...
the service manual is clear (p035x's)
Peak primary circuit current not achieved with maximum dwell time.
This means that the PCM charged to coil fully
and the current was way too low.
that means it found (out of spec) current.
even zero current,
means coil burned up or the transistors to it.
gee, id have the rail off and check each coil
there are 6 coils, 3 primary and 3 secondary
the SM cover this test, as all do so read it.
it can also be bad connections(wires) to same.
(crude, 5ohm pri, 20k secondary ohms)

WITH 3 COILS inside, and uses wasted spark to fire all 6
and if one coil fails you will loose, 2 cylinders, due to series HV wring, unless 1 wire shorts, but if one opens you loose 2 cylinders.
( Kirchhoff's laws 1; an open in series circuit flows no current, so both spark plugs go dead.

unless rich and super lucky , try using a scan tool
when the engine misfire, or stalls.
and report all errors seen, DTCs, a win/win.
the schematic, see F18 fuse , the coil pack
super simple no? ,yes, but not on PCM end. (Ask)

Could be but first I would check battery to motor and battery to body ground for corossion. Also check condition of motor to body ground strap also check under mounting bolts for corrosion. Bad or intermittent ground can cause all sorts of problems.

Need spark plug wiring diagram for 1965 ford

Try this. If the distributor is in the right way, the clips that hold the cap on should be just a hair off of 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock. #1 is positioned at 1 o'clock, which is at the firewall side of the distributor. The firing order is 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8and is counterclockwise from #1. The passenger's side is cylinders 1-2-3-4, from the front of the car. The driver's side is 5-6-7-8 from the front. Hope this will help.

1991 4.3L GMC Jimmy S-15 will not start. Turns over, but does not start. Replace spark plugs and wires, ignition coil, module checked good. The plugs are gettin fire but not sending it to the motor?

You need 3 things.
Good hot blue spark to all plugs.
Good gasoline and proper fuel pressure. 13-13.5 lbs on your TBI
If you have all 3 then move on to injector pulse to both injectors.

Keep me posted and recheck your spark plug wire to make sure they are not crossed. firing order 1-2-3-4-5-6 cylinder # passenger side 1-3-5 front to back. cylinder # drivers side 2-4-6 front to back
distributor #1 is located at the 7 o"clock and rotates clock wise so next distributor post on the right working clock wise is #2. Good luck and hope this helps.

I replaced my spark plug wires on my 1996 chevy truck. may have crossed one,need a diagram from the spark plugs to the distributer cap.

Since you didn't state whether it is a V6 or V8, I'll give you both.

V6 -4.3Liter
Firing Order is 1-6-5-4-3-2
Distributor rotor turns Clockwise
Number 1 spark plug tower on distributor cap, faces the front of the engine.

->Drivers side, spark plug order in engine, starting from the Front going back:
->Passenger side, spark plug order in engine,
starting from the Front going back:

If it's Electronic, the distributor cap has a Left side, (Drivers side), and a Right side, (Passenger side)
Starting from the Front, going back on the Left side,
Starting from the Front going back on the Right side,

V8-5.0, 5.7, and 7.4Liter
Firing Order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2
Distributor rotor turns Clockwise
Number 1 spark plug tower on distributor cap,
faces Front, towards the Drivers side.

Electronic distributor cap has two sides. Drivers, (Left), side and Passenger, (Right), side.
Starting from Front going back on Drivers side,
Starting from Front going back on Passenger side,

Spark plug order in engine, starting from Front going back, Drivers side:
Spark plug order in engine, starting from Front going back, Passenger side:
