could you please get your diagnostic codes read from an auto parts supplier for us?...could go ahead and take a wild-burro guess in that your vacuum lines are old and leaking...recommend replacing your leaking vacuum lines with silicone lines that won't decay or leak...like yours does~

...a tps (throttle position sensor) can show the symptoms that you are explaining, but will not be certain until you can come up with your diagnostics~

Used parts. Well if it helped for a while sounds like of those were your problem. When you put used parts on you cant really expect them to last they could have more miles than the parts you taking off. As far a vacuum leak you should get a check engine light with some lean codes.

replaced spark plugs and a leaking vacuum hose on backside of engine. problem went away. smoother start & running now. couldn't get the diagnostic codes.


I changed the crank sensor on my 1995 Chrysler Cirrus LX and i don't have any spark to the spark plugs what should be the problem and would the coil go bad in the distributor .

insufficient ground potential...take the MAIN 1/0 battery cable off the frame or fender where it's bolted to and wirebrush the lug and the frame where it bolts to, so that a 300 cold cranking amp potential is there~


we did that

test the voltage at the coil packs? change the starter/ignition relay?


ok the coil is in the Distibortor

great....unplug the connector to it and measure the voltage...if there ain't no voltage would look to the ignition switch and ignition relay~


thank you i will try that

we checked the plug to the disibortor with the test light and the light didn't come on so what would it be

you're not gettin' voltage to the coil....could be an ignition/start relay or the ignition switch....look at your fusebox to see which fuse has blown....roadmap is on the fusebox cover~

you tested the source....NOT the desination?...or the coil for OHMS?


how do I test the coil it is in the distibortor

check the voltage...leaks from hot to ground....resistance in OHMs to find the bad-boy~ the presence of voltage when switched to the ON position~
