2003 Dodge Van 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 58000 miles
While driving to work (at about 45 mph) my van began decelerating untill it came to a stop. Stepping on the gas only made it pause and sputter. However, the engine never died. As it sat idling, I decided to turn it off, but then it wouldn't restart. My mechanic said the diagnostic test traced everything to the ignition coil. After replacing it, it starts fine, and runs good, so far. However I'm still concerned abot the fuel filter or fuel pump. Can the ignition coil affect fuel flow in any way, or at any point, in the fuel line? Could a bad ignition coil cause deceleration without completely stalling out the engine, until it is manually turned off?
have the same problem?
