check if there is any voltage going to your coil if not the computer very well could be bad if its a lean burn system it will have the computer mounted to the air cleaner and have two wiring harness plugs going to it you will need to replace that unit. or if its regular electronic ignition it will be on the fire wall close to the drivers side hood hinge it will have 2 bolts attaching it and have a plug with either four or five wires to it and a screw in the center hope this helps
electronic spark modulator bad.
The spark plug tubes need replaced.
try to get a new ignition rotor
Moisture is getting into the distributor cap. It evaporates when it gets warm out. Replace it.
The most common failure associated with those symptoms is the Crankshaft Position Sensor.
I work at a Chrysler dealr and the oil we are currently getting from Chrysler is Penzoil. It used to be Mobil.
IT IS A BAD IGNITOR ON THE INSIDE OF THE DISTRIBUTOR.
How about the plug cables? Check connections at distributor and harness, and they should generally be replaced at the same time as the plugs.
Have you checked for trouble codes in the engine computer? Do you have access to a scan tool? You need a scan tool so you can see if the cam and crank sensors are reading. Are all fuses good? Is the battery full charge? Is there voltage to the distributor? Is the distributor turning?
it has to be the distributor cap or rotor or wires...plug wires.
My 1995 Nissan Quest is acting really strange. It is acting like its either misfiring or not getting enough gas and wants to cut out on me and it jerks sometimes hard. What could it be. I put new plugs and wires in, and just replaced the distributor cap and rotor for the distributor cap.
Check the fuel pump, rotor, and distributor cap.
Is it getting spark?, if it isn't getting spark to the plugs and you have a HEI distributor the ignition control module could be blown, take cap off and replace the module, it's the thing with the wires plugged to it inside the distributor.
Bad coil? Bad distributor rotor? Bad distributor cap?
The Fuel Pump relay. Fuse's
try the distributor module . may not be getting fire.
Somepeople thinks so but they will never be replaced.
im not getting fire to the spark plugs but the distributor is getting fire what do i do please help
Should be getting good mileage already! One suggestion is to switch to an electronic ignition distributor or conversion kit installed in the distributor. Pertronix makes a good setup, follow their advice. A performance exhaust is easily done and can give better mileage also.
Igniter? Please elaborate as I am not familiar with the term ignitor on a gasoline engine, and do not understand what you are referring to. Within the oem distributor, there is an oem electrical ignitor($70). It is a very common issue and problem with 93 honda accords... it can be replaced and the rest of the oem distributor is useable and salvaged, so dont throw it away! or listen to anyone that says the car is not getting spark and that the entire distributor is bad or the coil is bad, only replace with an aftermarket ignitor/distributor as a last option.
If you are not getting spark, the distributor is common to fail. It is hard to tell from the question if you changed it or just the cap and rotor. Also, do you have fuel pressure. That could be a fuel pump. If you have neither fuel or fire, that could be aa computer or wiring issue.
if you think your grand am has a distributor, you might think about closing your hood and getting someone else to fix it
try a new ignition coil
Have you checked all of the High Tension leads from the distributor to the plugs, or just one or two? Same with HT lead from Coil to Distributor, Check Distributor cap for cracks
CHECK THE IGNITION SWITCH,,, THEY HAVE A HABIT OF GOING BAD
