signs of another bad TFI module?
Alright, hope somebody can shed some light here. approx 45 days ago my 95 Gt wouldn't start. I replaced the distributor with a whole new one because the sensor in my original finally went down on me. In the process of diagnosing my problem I removed my TFI off my fender well and had it tested also. It tested good so i brought it back home to reinstall it. Upon re-installation the old one cracked and fell apart( I guess due to the heat and age of it). I then had to buy a new one to replace the cracked one. Car fired right up and ran great! Now this is my problem with it, ever since the new parts have been put in it runs like a champ when it is first started all the way till I drive it for 20 miles or so. Or if i let it warm up fully then shut it down and wait 10 mins to take another trip it starts acting up. The symptoms have been that it bucks, stumbles and misses at 1,500- 2,500 rpms when I'm easy on the throttle. If I give it a little more gas and accelerate quicker it hardly does it at all. I have also noticed that when It's acting up if i accelerate really hard that the car detonates badly while my foot is in the gas. Okay, so today I decided to take the TFI off the fender well and have it tested, well it failed immediately. I got a replacement, brought it home , put the white grease on the back of it, installed it and took it for a short spin. The car runs great! I then came back home and grabbed a quick bite to eat and then went for another spin. Same old crap again!!! Did i get another bad module again?? i know it was good before I left the store because I had it tested before I left. Are these parts just crap(the TFI module) or is something causing them to go bad? I also forgot to list that the car has the timing set at 11 degrees all new plugs,wires,cap,rotor, and I just cleaned my MAF. Any Ideas?? Thanks!!
