Sounds like you might have missed my last post on page 2.

Gotcha, thanks. Well, I got a new ICM coming. Thanks popatim . Now, as long as I can get it in okay, which I think I can. We'll see how that goes. If this works, I hope I can get this much support to get the oil pressure fixed. I'll update once I get the ICM.
Thanks to everyone for the help!

Didn't you recently put on a crank sensor? Sorry to say..that'* the first place I'd look. Or slightly adjust the pins on the ICM to ensure they are making good contact.

ICM'* "usually" cuase odd or erratic behavior first, then die off and refuse to work. However the amount of ICM issues we see are small and infrequent to crank sensors etc.

Yeah, I just had the crank sensor done a few weeks ago. It has been working fine, escept for the low oil pressure. Voltage guage has been reading great. Car stalled once on Wed, then 5 times on Thurs. I took it as the gas being too low. Only real problem up to that point had just been the low oil pressure.
Still have to get that fixed, but right now I need to get it started. Plus, the PA Safety inspection is up at the end of may and that will probably end up costing me at least a couple of hundred bucks.
One step at a time I guess.
Just really don't want to get into a car pament right now with trying to buy a house, and as I have said, I am not mechanically inclines, nor do I have a garage, and labor rates arekilling me. I don't mind paying for parts, but labor is crazy.

Got the ICM today. Thanks Tim!!! You rock!
SO, what do I do with it???? Seriously, a little help please. I have the Hayne'* manual but the pics are a little off because it covers like 10,000 different cars.
Reading it doesn't sound too bad, but I like some input before I begin.

well all you have to do is swap it out with the one that is under the coils right now.

take out the bolts underneath, undo the ICM cable, then unscrew the packs from the old ICM and put them IN THE SAME ORDER on the new one. very very easy, no manual needed!

Unbolt the harness at the front of the module and unplug..

Then one by one remove the coils keeping them in the same order...

Once all of the coils are removed you should be able to pick up the Module( ICM ) and install the new one

Oh and you may also need to unbolt the negative battery cable from the block of the engine to make it easier to remove the ICM mounting bolts.

Also, it wouldn't be a bad idea to put some Dielectric grease on the contacts after swapping.

Okay, I think I can handle this. I think I may wait for the rain to stop though.
