Here is what happened. I was driving and the van suddenly shut down, I have fuel and heres the real kicker, had spark from the coil but NOT from the distributor to plugs. OK so yea I figure lemme try a new HEP, I go get one and put it in, still no good and then I noticed I LOST spark from the coil too now! So now im like what the heck is going on here? Help me out guys, ever hear of this?
BTW most important thing, I do get spark for a second from the coil when I turn the key on but not during cranking. And a slight jolt when u turn the key off, so yea just spark for a split second when key first goes to start position and then when the key is turned off. So anyaway as recap, I started off with spark at coil and no dostributor to plugs, swapped out to new hep module which didnt help then noticed no more coil spark either except for a split second when you turn the key on and a spark again when you turn the key off but nothing while cranking. Oh tried a new coil too but same thing.
However at a side note I do have 7 or so volts at the coil with key on. Idk what should be there though. And I did get it to spark and start for a sec out of nowhere when I was first looking it over. And that was it and I still had spark at the coil after that. Then all the above took place.
have the same problem?
