My jeep cut out on me this morning (AGAIN) and I had to take it to a shop to fix. They are telling me its the coil in the distributor. As far as I know they are based on GM HEI modules. What can I tell them to get to replace it?
Thanks for the replies all. turns out it was the module not the coil. Ended up costing me $210+tax!! highway robbers!!
Ohhh, didn't see this when I first posted. Yeah, I bought a module at Kragen for like $24 when I first built mine. Hell they've got an entire replacement distributor for like $120 you just got to swap your current tip and gear.

I had my hands tied. I was broken down on the grand central pkwy - AAA don't cover it. Had to get towed to the next exit - I was late for work and dropped it at a garage - $89 tow - $120 diagnostic fee - $90 part - all of which I could have done myself if I was upstate and not in the city. I couldn't exactly leave the jeep in the right lane of the grand central and go get the part (which I didn't know what it was at the time).
Sucks big time.
