I was in my truck when I stopped to talk to someone.I sat there for a little while idle. After a bit I shut the motor off and about ten minuites later I tried to restart it and it failed to do so. So checked to see if it was gettig gas and was. Pulled a plug checked for spark nothing. Assuming ( yes assuming) it was the module I went and go tone and when I took the cap off I seen this. Was amazing I never seen one burnt this bad. Can anyone tell me what does this.I am interested. Anyways I put another one in and seems to run fine.I will check on it here and there but I thought maybe u guys would know whats up. Thought it was interesting because I have talkied to a few mechanics that have been doing it for a while they say that they never have seen one this bad. Lol
