88 4.2 YJ Ignition Module questions
I've been skimming through lots of forums and it seems i have a bad ignition module. I wanted to post my symptoms before i go pick one up and see if the wise people here on jeepforum agree with me.
I will randomly have a rough time starting the jeep, which isnt the worst part.
Very randomly the jeep will turn off while i'm driving. Sometimes ill be going 50 mph and be able to start it back up immediately if i pop it in neutral while im still rolling. Sometimes it will take 5-15 minutes of the car sitting for it to start. Sometimes I get frustrated and kill the battery trying to start it back up.
When this happens the lights still stay on, i dont have a radio so i cant say anything about it. And if i remember correctly my gauges all bottom out.
Cap and plugs are fairly new, its nuttered and my timing is around 8-10 tbc.
Yesterday morning it wouldnt start no matter what i did so i had to grab a ride to work. And this morning i went out and it fired right up. Its quite inconsistant, Earlier in the week i went 4 or 5 days with no problems after replacing the air filter. And on a side note the fuel filter seems fine, it passes air with no problem.
Sorry if i rambled on... ill be messing with it today and tomorrow so any help would be awesome. Thanks guys
