If it'* the crank sensor, it should start one in 6 times, and wouldn't just die while running. Give us more specifics. No spark on all 6 ever? Died while running? Starts, then dies?

ECM could be a slight possibility....Don't know how likely it it is on a 89 though. I'm kinda at a blank though on this one....possibilty of bad plugs or and wires?
