2.3l OSC Has Gas no Spark
Ok, the car died overnight. So I thought immeidatly it was the fuel
pump. After listening to it, I can hear the pump running in the tank.
I am aware of the class action lawsuite V. FoMoCo in 2002 for the
defective Ignition Module that would fail at temp. However my problem
is asymptomatic with this problem, as the car did not die hot, and will
not start cold.
If i can not find a suggestion here I will endup buying a new distro w/
ignition module attached. (about $118 from Advanced)
however I think I could use some Ideas, because I dont seem to have any
juce coming from the coil to the (top of) the distro. anyhow.
I changed the fuel filter, (after depressurizing the system) and there
was a slight trickle of fuel from the gasline to the filter.
After repalcing the filter I followed the repressureization <SP>
I pulled a spark plug, and it had ashy white buildup. I replaced the
plugs, and wires. Nothing
The cap was badly worn, so i replaced the rotor and cap. Nothing.
Then I checked to see if the timing had gone, I bumped the starter
untill the distro. rotor pointed at the #1 plug wire, and slid a
screwdriver in to tap on the top of the piston. Then I bumped the
starter to spin the rotor around 180 degrees and slid the screwdriver
back in and it went to the handle, so I feel the timing is ok.
I replaced the Coil (cleaned the bracket and where it mounts to the
block to ensure grounding)
as I said, Its getting gas, you can smell it when you try to turn the
no spark to plugs, no spark from coil.
I dont want to spend another $100 dollars, if it is somthing small that
I am overlooking, its happened before.
