    Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Ignition Control Module:

    I had the same problems as the other reviewer. It didn't come with grease, and I had to carefully drill out the plastic to get the screws in, But once I got it installed the truck runs well, and that's all that counts.

        Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Ignition Control Module:

        The mounting hole by the connector doesn't work with the factory screw length. The OE module has the screw passing thru the aluminum base plate only, whereas the BWD screw hole by the connector has the screw pass thru plastic, and then the aluminum. Works OK if you carefully drill the plastic out of the hole, but not something you'll be able to do roadside. It also did not come with the thermal transfer grease, thus lowering confidence in it's longevity.

            • Q:

              Will this product correct hard start issues, as well as occasional instances when the timing is not getting advanced when it should be, such as under a load? I've replaced almost all the sensors in my 93 Ranger 3.0 and still have hard start issue. Hard start most pronounced in warm temps, if cold below 40 deg. F it starts up, fast idles for a minute or so, then drops and almost stalls or "chugs" up and down in rpm until it gets warm. And some times it acts like it's trying to stall while stopped and in gear, chugging or bucking. Any suggestions? And BG fuel service did not help.

                A:

                Yes Brian, the ignition control module could possibly the problem. However, without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it, nor provide you with a 100% answer. I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

                Hi Crazy1, glad to assist you! For help with your project, I recommend purchasing a Haynes or Chilton repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.

                Glad to assist, T! It is located at the top right side of safety wall. Open the hood and on the firewall near the passenger side strut you should see a stud with ground wires on it, just to the left is the ignition module.

                Yes this could be the next step. If this was broke you would not get a spark.

              • A:

                If you do not have spark, and the fuel pump does not run while cranking the engine over, either the ignition module or the stator inside the distributor is bad. The pump will run when you cycle the key on but not while cranking. With the module mounted on the distributor, 8 times out of 10 it's the module that is bad. This is why Ford began remote mounting them. With a remote mounted module, the stator is most likely the problem.
