Won't start. Replaced Ign control mod.[applied grease to back] Engine started and ran it for about 45min. Started and stopped it 2-3 times without any problems. Turned it off and went back out the next morning, tired to starti but it hasn't started yet. Changed ign coil but still won't start. Need Help!

Sure it's an electrical fault and not possibly a fuel problem ?

I'm not sure of anything but I thought I smelled gas while it was turning over. I guess I'll crack open the fuel line and make sure that it's getting fuel. It was just strange how it started after the ICM was changed out and then the next day it wouldn't start.

Take it you have checked the basics like the plugs and you are getting spark / fuel ??

Thats not good. You may have a pinhole leak in one of the gas lines. Run a peice of cardboard over the fuel lines, to check for a leak. It shouold present itself in the form of a wet spot on the cardboard. It would be a good idea to ask the technician who replaced the icm what exactly he did, and get the whole story. If you have a multimeter, it would be a good idea to get a wiring diagram for the ignition system and use it to check and see if power is getting to the coil and the icm. Also try holding your foot to the floor while you crank it to clear the cylinders of excess gas. If it starts, well the fuel pressure regulator is at fault
