I HAD THIS PROBLEM ON AND OFF FOR A LONG TIME ON MY 1985 AND CHANGED THE DISTRIBUTOR,& COIL TWICE. CLEANED ALL CONNECTORS ON ECM ETC. I THINK I SOLVED IT BECAUSE I HAVEN'T HAD THIS PROBLEM THIS PAST YEAR. I TRACED IT TO THE COIL,IGNITION ELECTRIC PLUG UNDER THE DASH ON THE STEERING COLUMN. THE 14DB J2 CIRCUIT WAS MAKING AN INTERMEDIATE CONNECTION CAUSING THE NO START. I FORCED A PIECE OF WOOD IN THE WIRE CONNECTION PLUG TO TIGHTEN THE CONNECTION AND SO FAR HAD NO PROBLEM STARTING. THIS REPAIR WAS A WINNER AND SPENT MANY HOURS FINDING IT. THIS PLUG IS PROBIBLY A Chrysler FAULTY PART. GOOD LUCK AND HOPE THIS IS YOUR PROBLEM. P.S. I LOVE MY CAR 244000 SO FAR.
1000 ohms per 12 inches.
pull and plug vacuum line to spark computer, adjust timing
just from what ive heard it could be the battery cable loose or spark plugs may be bad.
There is no ignition module on a 1987 5th ave. The spark control computer is on the air cleaner with a vacuum line hooked to it.
Faulty plug wires or bad coil or coil wire.
To produce a spark.
It could be the spark plug wires that's what was wrong with mine.
If your spark plug doesn't screw in your threads might be messed up. Run down to your local Part store and ask for a Thread Chasser($arround 10$) and screw that in to your spark plug housing just as you where screwing in a spark plug. What this does is it replaces the threads. Take out the chasser, Lubricate your spark plug and you should be good to go.
It is on the air cleaner. If the sticker is still intact it will say "electronic spark control", or "electronic fuel control" on it. It will have a vacuum line plugged in to it, and a couple of wire harnesses.
Check firing order
The book says to use champion rn12yc spark plugs so I did, a month later my 87 wouldn't start and I didn't think it could be the plugs, it was I put Bosh spark plugs in and it started but was misfiring so I put Bosh spark plug wires ( 32.99 at autozone) and haven't had a problem since.
If there is any residue on the spark plug, it will not produce a sufficient spark for the engine ignition.
Bad spark plugs can cause a mini chopper to not get a spark. Another common cause is a bad ignition switch.
Disconnect the battery, remove the boot cover and spark plug cables, and pull out the old spark plugs. Put in the new spark plugs, replace the boot cover, and spark plug cables, and reconnect the battery.
What non-ferous metals that produce a spark and lis the colors
They can cause a spark. if a spark get to any petrol, BOOM!
Power brakes use engine vacuum to get their power. If the engine is out of tune, the loss of vacuum will cause it to run rough. Try changing the spark plugs.
the only thing crossed spark plug wires can do is cause one to misfire.
bad spark plug wire.
