    Does the ignition module need to be replaced?

    1987- IF fender mounted box type module, next time it stalls pour some cold water on the module and see if it starts back up, IF fender mounted! If it starts replace it. Could be distributor mounted but usually when they go bad then they are bad altogehter! No restart.
