In the instruction booklet for the ignition box there is a section under trouble shooting there is a section called testing for spark. Unfortunately you need to run the motor till it will not fire to do the test. I would highly recommend checking any crimps extensions etc on the wires going to the box. Make sure we did not do a bad job and miss-crimp a wire end or something. The time it died for a half hour would indicate an intermittent problem in one of the components, box coil distributor, but the shutting of and starting right back up normally points at a connection or something. Make sure that the ground to the unit is ok, that the ground from the battery to the block is in good shape etc. But really look at the harness on the box to coil, box to distributor and box top battery.

hope this may help;

This sounds like the crankshaft sensor has an intermittent problem. Does it cause the check engine light to come on?

My 1999 chev. tahoe backfires when i step on the gas


The problem sound like you have too much back pressure building up in the exhaust. Start by disconnecting the exhaust Y-pipe. Then start the engine and run again if the engine does not back fire, reconnect the exhaust everything after the Y-pipe. If the problem returns it is safe to say that the catalytic converters are clogged and need to be replaced.*** Make sure you use PB BLASTER or LIQUID WRENCH on the exhaust bolts to help with removal.***

Have a '94 S-10 Blazer Tahoe 4X4 and it starts


My suspicion is a starter going bad. Sometimes when starters get old and worn they will start good when the engine is cold but not when the engine is warmed up. Did you perhaps notice that lately is seemed to drag when you tried starting, especially warm or it seemed to crank a little slower? I'd replace the starter. Hope this helps.
