Question type: General

It then it will crank back one it is cool
agin the motor is not running hot. I
also replaced the sensor plug in the
steering wheel column that some
said could be the problem and it
didn't help it. It has a high
preformance fuel pump on it could it
be causing the engine to flood  and
not fire till it un floods ???

Did you change the distributor pickup at the same time as the module? If not that might be your problem.


Right, TFI module was the first step, now it's time to look into the PIP sensor inside the distributor. You can just replace the distributor with a new one or try the fix in these
