The only scan tool I have is what I could possibly rent. Do you have any recommendations maybe there is some place I can get the scan done?

A good scan tool will cost about $2,000.00 to $3,000.00.

You could have a mobile mechanic come to you and check it for you as well. That would be cheaper by a ton.

And help you diagnose the failure, yes. Otherwise, you need to get it to a shop and have the testing done.

I can rent anyone of these scanners and they say graphing live data, searching live data, and then they have live data and freeze frame data. Can I get lucky enough and one of these will work for what you are talking about?

The graphing of live data is what you are looking for to see spark and injector on times.

Hello Roy, sorry it took so long. But I have some information and 2 pictures with I hope my answer. I have replaced the coil and the ignition control module right next to the coil. I have not replaced the throttle positioning sensor or that plug that is in the distributor.

The most common problem is the coil itself. I would start there.

I have replaced the coil the ignition control module distributor cap and bug, plugs and wires. The only thing I have not replaced is that module that is under the rotor bug and has a plug that plugs into it. Can the throttle positioning sensor cause the problem I am having? I saw the scanner said something about the throttle positioning sensor. Could that be my problem?

351 is not a code for your vehicle. Are you sure we are talking about the Astro?

I see the 351 is one of 8. What are the other 7?
