I replaced the housing 2 years ago and my check engine light will not go off I done a diagnostic test and it showed up misfire
Ignition switch locked up. Had it busted out enough to still use the key and drive. Had a new battery put in. Had new spark plugs and wires put on. After new wire and plugs, the car started backfiring. The car died while driving. Can't get it to start. Fuel pump is fine.
