i am stressed the **** out now. car drove fine for about 15 miles after i did the plugs and wires . then the pos starts missing bad as im getting to my grandparents house. i leave there its missing, till i got about a half mile and it died. had to have lauren come in my car and tow it back to their house. then in the driveway it started up like nothing had happened. also cleaned the icm with 60 grit same with the coil terminals.

any help is greatly appreciated as i am about at my limit with this thing.

the other heat related thing is the icm. when the coils go it will miss but run. make sure you inpect the wires and connectors to the icm and crank sensor. if you have a heat gun you can carefully try heating it up and see if it stalls

55,000 volts to Your finger tips will get you to hospital, before you go to the junkyard. remove the module, have autozone test it, and if it passes the test, buy a new crank sensor.
