I suppose that it is possible to have a magnet that has weakened, but I wouldn't think it real likely. If what your recent discovery doesn't solve the problem, we'll test for that.

Darn. Check the voltages at the PCM, and the sensor per the instructions here.

Thanks again Archon.. you know something that I never ask about or checked were my Ignition Coils! I been overlooking them even when i changed the ignition module...I looked up what you just sent me P0341 DIAGNOSTIC AIDS...besides cracks can a faulty coil be tested?

Inspect for the following conditions:

A faulty ignition coil
The ignition control module and the coils for cracks, carbon tracking, or other signs that indicate that the coil secondary circuit is arcing to the ICM or to the ICM wiring harness - Refer to Ignition Coil(*) Replacement

Sorry, I should have paid more attention. I thought that you had checked those from my post on the previous page regarding the coils and ICM. You can test the coils using the procedure in this techinfo article.

Wow thanks for the page!

You did send me a prior page on DIAGNOSTIC AIDS..one of them checking coils. It was I, that should of paid more attention. However, I was focusing on battery,fuse,relays and harness.. I'm hoping that is the problem ,I have to ask the mechanic if this was one of the test he did...
You know, I was thinking of getting the Accel coils. Thanks for the heads up!
As I was searching on coils I see Jegs and Summitt Racing have their own brand coils.. I was also thinking about MSD.

You can buy the after-market coils, but they really won't perform any better than the OEM coils. They run more than hot enough, especially for stock applications.

Hey Archon,
Just to let you know I checked for cracks on the coil but, did not find none I was hoping I did..I will test them with voltage meter this weekend. I just wanted to know when checking the resistance of each secondary winding in place mounted on module.. does the ignition have to be on?

No, leave the ignition off, but to test them thoroughly, you have to test the primaries also. You'll have to pull the coils to do that, so you can do both primary and secondary after you pull them.

Archon,
I bought a meter from radio shack and and park the car, the readings were:

MOUNTED
COIL- 6_3 6.39

COIL 2_5 6.34

COIL 4_1 6.12

UNMOUNTED
THEY WERE ALL THE SAME 00.0

So i was not sure if the car had to be hot to to test the coils..After warming up the car

did the test again

mounted all coils were in the same range of 06.3
unmounted they were still 0.00

I little confuse here ..I will be taking a ride so the engine can get hot and i will do the test again....I also took pics bu,t do not know how to attch them here.[/img]
