could be anything from primary ign to poss dist is set incorrectly.start by ck'ing dist alignment 1st
ok thank you.could it possibly be a sensor.i.e cam or crank sensor? reason i ask about the sensors is that a cert. mechanic mentioned them to me, and it is relatively costly to replace them on my budget. thanks again
yes but dist alignment is very important and will set codes on 3rd cycle
can you please explain what dist. alignment is,also set codes on 3rd cycle,i would like to relay info, if possible. thank you
set eng to top dead center and point rotor at #1 cyl on dist cap
independent coils.no dist cap. 2004 4.8l 1500.
