Pap had to have a blood clot filter installed, They think maybe some of his blood loss is due to thin blood (taking a thinner, for clots he DID have) Suspect its getting out slowly, at radiator drain and exhaust (no visual). Install filter, no more additives, viscosity increases. No more blood loss. Pap get strong. Go home. Soon, we hope!
Did you modify anything, immediately prior to having this issue?
On a CJ, we have a EXTERNAL IGNITION MODULE. Can be EZily removed and tested at Autozone, Advance Auto, FOR FREE. Maybe other stores too
I suspect yours is a smaller compact module (probably in the distributor)
Call ahead, see IF/ WHO can test it, prior to taking it out. On CJs I have them do it 5 or more times in a row! (Warms them up) Then they will FINALLY fail, before I reinstall a BAD ONE---THINKING ITS GOOD. Spending the next 3 days, tearing everything else apart. Then having Mr. Knowitall give me advice, "I wooda tested the module before I done all that"
Then the arguing starts. Then you actually find yourself at school (Pap calls it, THE SCHOOL OF HARD KNOCKS)
These things COMPLETELY FAIL--or--FAIL AND TEASE REPEATEDLY, maybe other symptoms too
They are tested for low and high RPM, and other stuff too'
Its possible it could be the Evil factor. What you got to lose, testing it?
You will probably need to spend $$$$$ to reinstall it or a New one. Maybe 1-3. You need a Packet/ bottle of HEAT SYNC GREASE (or whatever they call it) It dissipates the heat off of the bottom of the module and transfers it to the distributor metalor it will over heat and fail. Just sorta smear it on the bottom of the module
I will be here, awake till morn, at the Horsespital!
I will now think of distributor and other issues to maybe cause this. How have you tested for vacuum leaks? Techniques?
