Here is what I think might be you problem. No signal in the Cylinder Position (CYP) sensor circuit." Which is a sensor inside the distributor housing which tells the the fuel injector computer the position of #1 cylinder. It also could be the main computer, but that is the least likely. The distributor in these cars had huge problems when they got some miles on them.

Remove the cap to see if there is a rust colored dust inside which is telling you the unit is bad.

Please let us know what you find.

Hi gabriel_26,

Since the distributor replacement did not solve the problem, test the wires and sockets for continuity to PCM. If continuity is vailable, the PCM might be faulty.

Test the resistance of the distributor CYP sensor. Should be 800 to 1500 ohms.

Hi Hi gabriel_26,

The pick up coil has an open circuit and the distributor is bad. Ask for a replacement from the place you bought it. Bring along the ohmmeter and test the circuits before getting it home.
