It may be time for a pro to look at it. You dont want to guess wrong on a PCM. Are you sure you have Injector pulse? One side of the fuel injectors should have power and the pcm grounds them to make them open. If the engine runs on carb cleaner its not getting fuel.

SOURCE: Vehicle dies while driving down the road.

could it be the A/C pump kicking in. might be boging down the motor or electrical circuit, not letting the injectors get enough power. This could happen if the bearings are going bad in th A/C pump or there is a short in it. Just an idea. sounds like you have done the main components.

You need to check it for spark and fuel and go from there. If you have questions on how to test let me know. Don't start throwing away money in parts for it.

From your description it could be fuel or ignition. Ignition is usually easier to start with and only checking the spark power and quality as the engine dies will indicate what is happening - if anything.

Need to find out if it has a loss of spark or fuel when it dies.
Did you replace the coil because it had a loss of spark? Could be the ignition module. Auto Zones can test those for free.

Or is there a loss of fuel or low fuel pressure. Could be a weak/going out pump or a problem in its circuit.

Try to replace the fuel filter and then check the spark plugs. Mke sure to clean the spark plugs and after you clean the spark plugs and still the same it wont start replace the spark plugs and check the distributor as well.

Car turns over great getting fuel and spark but wont start


Spark without fuel = just spark. :) Are you getting fuel movement? You could have a bad/clogged fuel filter, bad fuel pump - could be a few things. Check to make sure you're getting fuel.
