Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just died one day. Replaced distributor, spark

alternator, replaced, ecm, replaced knock sensor.
Added fuel treatment & premium gas. Car starts at
random runs for a while. Randomly jerks when you

This Diagnostic Connector should be located under hood...driver side. Suggest you use a FUSED jumper wire. The procedure is detailed on line. Google your Make/Model/Year.
