I have a 1987 chevy 1/2 ton 4x4 truck w/a 5.7 litre v-8 with 170,000. I just replaced the worn out motor with a brand new crate motor and while driving it recently it just quit midstream in the middle of the road, come to find out it was the pick up coil. I just replaced that on the old motor last summer so it has maybe 5,000 or 7,000 miles on it. Question is what would make the pick up coil go bad so quickly, just aggravating cuz it was running so well after installing the crate motor. Would appreciate any help that you could give.
have the same problem?
