Before you go all out and buy an ECM I would check with your ignition coil. The middle wire that goes from your distirbuter cap will lead you right to the ignition coil. It could be sparking on something metal around that area. Hope this helps, James Booth

The problem could be related to the fuel injector instead of the ignition system.

Won't take fuel and back fires at times

Firing order okay? the MAF can do this to you (Mass air flow) a bad connection at the distributor can do this. The distributor connection can do this if the 180 signal is missing going to the ECM. So wiggle test that connection and inspect that male to female connection. The MAF (mass air flow) in this particular year it was called a volume air flow sensor so if this signal is missing signal to the ECM it stumbles the vehicle so wiggle test that connection also check fuseable links and ground for this mass air flow.Rule of thumb a backfire always occur when timing is off giving a lean mixture. and a miss under load is a meaning for not enough fuel.2_26_2012_4_13_52_am.gif

96 geo prizm 1.6l. Just had timing belt, water pump replaced. Allso, coil and spark plugs. Car now misses as soon as the water temp starts to come up when accelerating. I just put new plug wires on. Same...

I would definitely try the distributer cap and rotor button. It's about a 15 minute job and might solve your problem. As the car warms up the electrical components of course heat up too. As the heat goes up, resistance also increases in electrical connections, wires, etc. You could be getting enough current to pass between the rotor and the poles at low temps but, as they heat up, sufficient current for a good spark is not being passed along.

#4 cylinder missing. Found spark eratic and weak. Wires cap rotor plugs all new needed to replace anyway. Question is does the igniter/module have a magnet in it to pick up the distributer position rotor?...

The part is a ' hall effect ' pick-up switch. it hasn't any magnetic properties of it's own. When the nodes on the distributer shaft crosses the switch it induces a slight current in the switch which then sends it to the igntion system to fire the coil. If there was a problem with the switch it would affect all cylinders.

Engine cuts out or misses

when a engine cuts out or miss fires its usually caused by worn or bad spark plugs and plug wires it can also be a worn or bad distributer cap and rotor if the motor has one most motors have coil packs witch do go bad but not as often i would check the plugs and wires first.

My engine is missing, I was told it may be a

It is probably electrical, with one or more of your spark plugs randomly not firing. Using an induction timing light (or a "scope") would show which plug is having this problem. Most likely, it is the spark plugs that need replacing. After that, I would consider the distributer cap & rotor, and last would be replacing all the spark plug wires (very carefully, you do NOT want to connect these wrong).

Part time miss

Sound like you coil is going out. Need to replace the coil and go ahead and do a complete tuneup, plugs, plug wires, distributer cap & rotor button. It will run like new, plus a can of SEAFOAM for the gas tank to clean to fuel system.
