Honestly i have no clue. I thought it was electrical / distributor but it's not, my the fuel pump, or ecu. I am just clueless right now. The problem I'm having is no spark. I have air, fuel, compression and battery, just no spark

It very well could be the CPS, will that cause it to not spark? Also, my year is 96, this is the year with only 1 CPS correct?

Triple check the CPS connector just under the thermostat housing. A harmless and free thing to try is to disconnect the connector and twist the male pins just a tiny bit, so they make a better connection when plugged back in.

Just did your advice, nada. But I can see how that would be a quick test to see if connections are ok. Thanks brother


Still figuring out what's going on. Ordering a CPS and hoping for he best.
