I have a ford mustang lx 2.3L 4-cyl. I had the distributor out to repair the pickup crackedplastic mouting due to ra ga in damaging it during tightening the torque converter bolts when reinstalling the engine. The car started up and ran rough. resetting the timing does not improve it. seems as if it is contually get full fuel making the car run rough and smoking out the exhaust. Is this a problem with the ECM? ignition control module? What?
Are you answering the question? on line or will it be sent to my email?
Is there a throttle pressure sensor that could be sending a bad signal telling the computer to keep giving it full fuel?
On two occasions when working onthe car trying to get rid of the rough idle and smoking, we shut the car off and then when we tried to restart the car, it cranked but did not fire. after waiting an hour or so, we tried to start it and it started up. But ran with the same results, rough idle, smking but seemed to run a little smoother at high revs. I would not run at just a idle with out giving it some gas.
Blogs that I have read regarding this problem say it could be the Ingnition control module,ignition coil or the profile ignition pickup sensor
