Check for a vacuum leak. Sounds to me that you have one somewhere.

I have a 1989 Chevy c1500 that keeps stalling? Details below. Any advice for trouble shooting or what parts could be causing this??


sounds like your fuel pump, is on its last leg. (in tank) dropping your tank is never fun so cut an access hole in your bed, above where your fuel pump is located, its an 1989, so what the hell. its so much easyier. make the opening 12''square. note: there is a ground strap, make sure its attached from pump to fill pipe. study locations of fuel hoses,etc., be careful when removing lock ring, and fuel pump , a repair manuel would be helpful. good luck

How do you remove the ignition coil


Each ignition control module (ICM) has the following circuits:
An ignition 1 voltage circuit A chassis ground An ignition control circuit for each cylinder A low reference circuit
The PCM controls spark by pulsing the ignition control circuits to the ICM to trigger the coils and fire the spark plugs. The PCM and ICM are internally protected against shorts to power and ground on the ignition control circuits.

The spark plugs are connected to each coil by a short boot. The boot contains a spring that conducts the spark energy from the coil to the spark plug. The spark plugs are tipped with platinum for long wear and higher efficiency.


Ignition Control Module (ICM) Connectors

  4. Remove the accelerator cable bracket.
  5. Disconnect the ignition control module (ICM) harness connector.
  6. Remove the ICM retaining screws.
  7. Remove the ICM from the ignition coil housing.

To install:
  1. Install the ignition control module in the ignition coil housing.
  2. Install the ICM retaining screws. Tighten the retaining screws.
  3. Connect the ICM harness connector.
  4. Install the accelerator cable bracket.
  5. Install the accelerator cable bracket bolt. Tighten the retaining screws.
  6. Install the accelerator cable to the bracket.

2.2L (Ln2) Engine
  1. Remove the air cleaner outlet from the air cleaner.
  2. Remove the ICM electrical connectors (1) and spark plug wires (2).
  3. Remove the ignition coils bolts (3).
  4. Remove the ignition coils and ICM assembly.
  5. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

2.4L Engine

    Fig. Removing the ICM from the camshaft cover

To install:

CAUTION DO NOT wipe grease from the module or coil if the same module is to be replaced. If a new module is to be installed, a package of silicone grease will be included with the module. Spread the grease on the metal face of the module and on the cover where the module seats. This grease is necessary for module cooling.
  1. Install the ICM to the cover.
  2. Install the screws that retain the ICM to the cover.
  3. Install the ground strap, if necessary.
  4. Connect the ignition coils connector to the ICM.
    CAUTION When installing the housing to the cover, make sure the ground strap stays in place.
  5. Install the housing to the cover.
  6. Install the screws that retain the housing to the cover.
  7. Install the spark plug boots and the retainers to the housing, if necessary.
  8. Install the ICM assembly to the engine while carefully aligning the spark boots to the spark plug terminals.
    CAUTION The ICM cover bolts must be installed using isolator washers with the rubber side facing down.
  9. Install the bolts that retain the ICM assembly to the camshaft housing after coating the bolt threads with LOCTITE, or equivalent. Tighten the bolts to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm).
  10. Connect the ICM 11 pin harness connector.
  11. Install the bolt to the fuel line retainer clip.

Car won't start and battery is fully charged and cables are not loose. What else should I be looking at? We just had the rear brake system completely replaced.


Items to check out Battery and battery cables (Load test battery and make sure cables are clean and tight especially the B+ cable off the starter).
Listen to the cranking speed of the starter. Does it sound normal or slow? Depending on what you hear you may want to do a starter current draw test or have a shop do it for you.
If all of the above are a-ok then move onto fuel and ignition checks.
When you put the key into the ignition and turn it to on position do you hear the fuel pump buzz?
No buzzing sound ... you could have either a bad fuel
pump or relay. Either way the vehicle is going to a shop for further diagnosis and repair.
Ignition check WET WIRES will usually give you a misfire unless the coil pack they are attached to was submerged in water. Then you may have major engine problems like a hydro locked engine.
Dry off or replace wires and look over coil, totally saturated may be worth replacing.
Pull off a spark plug attach it to its wire and ground its electrode . Crank engine and look for spark.
No spark! Now check plug wires and coil. How use shop manual for correct testing procedure .
If no spark is found coming from the coil then check B+ coming from battery to coil and ignition module.
Lastly not likely but ignition switch should not be left out of the equation. Your gonna need the shop manual for that. good luck

Have your alternator checked. Most auto supply places do this at no charge. Multiple dashboard warning lights usually indicate alternator problems.

Hi! i think you must describe more problem symptoms;
DESCRIPTION The starting system includes the battery, starter motor, solenoid switch, ignition switch, inhibitor switch(A/T), ignition lock switch, connection wires and the battery cable. When the ignition key is turned to the start position, current flows and energizes the starter motor's solenoid coil. The solenoid plunger and clutch shift lever are activated, and the clutch pinion engages the ring gear. The contacts close and the starter motor cranks. In order to prevent damage caused by excessive rotation of the starter armature when the engine starts, the clutch pinion gear overruns. http://hmaservice.com/viewer/dispimg.asp?path=/data/Passenger/HY/HMA/ENG/SHOP-images/HY-SM13-IMAGES-ENG/ebkd010a.gif INSPECT SPARK TEST 1. Remove the spark plug cable. 2. Using a spark plug socket, remove the spark plug. 3. Remove the ignition coil. 4. Install the spark plugs to each spark plug cable. 5. Ground the spark plugs. 6. Check is spark occurs while engine is being cranked. 7. Using a spark plug socket, install the spark plugs. 8. Install the spark plug cable and ignition coil.
