On the manuals I look at they say there is no ignition module for this car because it is integrated into the PCM. Here are the wiring diagrams so you can see for yourself (below)

I have the PCM location for you if you want to try a used one.

What problem are you having?

Please let us know what happens so it will help others.

Cheers, Ken

The igniton control module is built into the computer-the computer switches the primary circuits and tells the coil/s to fire the plugs

Its like its not getting any fire at all. But after an hour it starts up everytime. Seems to be doing it more often now that its wamrer weather. It never dies driving down the road it only happens after turning it off.

We now know when it doesnt start if you put gas or starting fluid in the carb it starts up. So could it be the fuel relay or whateever its called.

If pump runs then relay is good need to check fuel pressure when it won't start. Should be 35-45 psi

Your vehicle uses the GEM (generic electronic module) and it is located behind the center of the dash.

No problem, just making sure you typed the correct vehicle in. For the Ford, like Doc said it does not have a separate ignition module, it uses the powertrain control module (PCM) and also has Fords generic electric module (GEM).

For the Chevy issue, is the check engine light on in the dash panel? Could be as simple as a bad mass airflow (MAF) sensor, but if you have engine light on then you should take it to local auto part store and ask them to retrieve your vehicle's check engine trouble codes. That will help pinpoint the issue. You can post the code(s) you retrieve here and I will follow up.

1336 means you need to "teach" the computer to read the crank sensor correctly. You will need a scan tool for this.

Install scan tool
vehicle in Park or Neutral
engine coolant temp. At 158 degrees F
engage parking brake
block vehicle drive wheels
turn all accessories Off
enable the crankshaft position system variation learning procedure with the scan tool
raise engine speed to 3920 RPM and release throttle as soon as the engine cuts out

The scan tool should indicate that the crankshaft position system variation has been performed

Afterwards, use the scan tool and select DTC, CLEAR INFO. Then start and warm engine to normal operating temp. Select DTC, SPECIFIC, then enter DTC P1336. Operate vehicle. Scan tool will then indicate wether the test passed.
