Were you able to figure out your problem since the last post?
Where did you check to see if you were getting a spark?
The safest place to check is to pull off the # 6 spark plug wire at the engine. Rest the boot part approximately 1 to 2 inches from a solid metal part of the car(not near any other electrical parts). Have someone crank the engine for 3 to 4 seconds while you watch for a spark to jump from the wire to the metal.
IF YOU SEE A SPARK your coil is ok.
The MODULE you were asking about either works or does not work.
It will not cause intermitant stalling unless the wires leading to it are not on properly. Check those and let me know what happens.
Further more, ensure that you have brand new spark plugs, brand new cap & rotor installed as part of a routine tune up.
If it is stalling out on you and the above parts are new, then we need to look at fuel, air & exhaust systems.
FUEL: is your fuel filter new? If not change it. They should be changed once a year as well.
EXHAUST: When your car is running, put your hand up to end of the exhaust pipe. There should be a really good push of exhaust air on your hand. If it is very little then it is likely that the catalytic convertor or muffler has crumbled on the inside causing a serious blockage. This will cause your car to run rough or even stall out in some cases. Even though your systemm looks good on the outside it also rots away fast from the inside.
AIR: install new air filter, PCV valve (again all part of routine maintenance but can cause a lot of grief if not maintained).
Let me know what happens.
