Just finished talking to you, back to the same problem after replacing the CKP Sensor connecter the engine ran for about 5 minutes before we are right back to the same problem no spark

Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.
I will do my best to assist you.


if it kept the spark for 5 minutes this time..i still think the problem is in the wiring at the crank may need to trace it all the way back to the computer..

a wiring problem can be really hard to find
