Spark issues My 1994 mazda starts and runs fine until about 5 minutes after it reaches operating temp then it stops giving spark. I've replaced the distributor twice and it has a new cap, rotor, plugs, and wires. What else could it be?

The coil can develop an open when it gets warmed up. Try doing all the resistance checks on the coil when its cold and see if it passes. Run the engine till it fails and quickly check resistances again to see if open circuits exist. Otherwise, it sounds like a problem either in on-board computer or some other power module.

How can I fix a 96 jeep grand Cherokee with 4.0 has rough idle and is hesitant until it reaches operating temp. but sets no codes?


Check the condition of spark plugs, if dirty or oily could be the timing gear or timing, wouldn't show a code, if plugs are white suggests lack of fuel, also no code . ( injector cleaner and ethanol remover for the latter ). Repair shop for timing.

Once my 1999 jeep grand cherokee larado with 4.0 will not take gas and dies out at operating temp


Need to road test with scan tool on it & look at data

Need to confirm the temp issue & what your saying

Need to see fuel pressure & if correct, what it is at 200
when the issues start.

Maybe the egr comes in later & leans it out

Maybe it won't stay in closed loop & that is temp related for sure

Think you need to go for a road test,you drive & shop guy rides
with scanner,have to be part of the solution or they will sell you
spark plugs & call it a tune-up,remember they have been gone for
25 years

88 bronco. runs fine untill it warms up then loses most power


Sound like an ignition issue.The hotter temps are causing a part to fail.If you've never replaced the ignition coil,this is the easiest place to start.Another possibilty would be the pickup in the distributor,or the reluctor on the distributor shaft.

I have a 1994 bravada that shuts off about 5 minutes after reaching opperating temp. i have replaced fuel pump, thermastat, temp sensor, and the problem remains the same. it runs perfectly until it cuts...


If there is an Auto Zone around your area, have your Ignition control module (ICM) tested. It's common for the ICM to fail when they heat up causing the engine to stop running. The ICM is located under the rotor in the distributor, check the wire's and look for any corrosion or damaged wires to the ICM. The ICM is $40.00 and Auto Zone will have the step by step instruction for you to get the job done with common tools. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.
