Originally the car had two issues and would not start cold. The cold start was the filter lines installed backwards which was corrected. The second issue is the loss of spark when warmed up. This is the 3.0 cols startup is good but once engine gets hot it dies and will not restart. Codes are 12 and 13. 13 points towards the map sensor, but I can not see how that would effect spark. I jumped the coil to force a start but still had a no spark condition, seeing as the coil was not secured in its mount, I am close to deciding that it is in fact the coil. I am going to cold start it until it dies then try to fire the coil manually to verify if it is firing. My question is to inquire if there is a relay that could also be breaking the circuit for the coil. The engine controller was replaced previously.
have the same problem?
