Thanks Gilbert! Couldn't find anything for the classic so that makes sense. Thanks!
I have two '95 RRCs, a SWB and a LWB, the LWB had a solid powertrain, but cosmetic issues, so I bought her for the powertrain, in case my new-to-me used 3.9 didn't work out. It has, so I've just sold my LWB, but I know there are many folks who have multiple parts trucks. RRCs are so cheap now, it makes sense, especially since parts are hard to find. The challenge is finding a parts truck that has enough good parts to justify the purchase. My LWB is worth more in parts than as a runner, which is a shame. Hopefully, the new owner will keep her running......Wife completely does not understand why I need another car just for parts. I'll tell her you agree with me. These RR classics are rare here so parts are hard to find...
Gilbert is right, stock RRCs don't have a CPS.Having just removed the engine from a '94, there is no crank position sensor. There is on a P38 as it doesn't have a distributor, but not on a Classic.
Johnno is right, the 14CUX is fuel system only, so no fault codes is a good sign. However, it might be helpful if you post your test results starting with Test 1 and follow the decision flow.You are not going to get any fault codes as they are related to the ecu and it only runs the fuel system. The ignition system is mechanical (i.e. works off a distributor) but pointless (uses a transistor (the ignition module) and a reluctor to get a signal). Rather than willy nilly replacing parts, print off the sections out of the RAVE manual and methodically work your way through the tests. All you need is a multi meter and some patience. No spark should be easy to find, eventually you will get to a point where the system works and your problem is somewhere near there. The worst problems are ones that are intermittent, but you don't have that difficulty.
Hi everyone. I have read all I think I can in the forums but can't seem to solve my problem. I have a 92 RRC, 3.9. It initially would die and idle poorly at stop lights. So replaced idle control valve. Still not a perfect idle, so cleaned MAF, still idle issue, so replaced MAF. At this point it would start up fine but run a little rough at idle. While running the ignition module got unbearably hot, so turn car off. Next morning wouldn't start. So assumed it was the ICM, ordered a new one with a remote relocation kit, from Altantic Pacific Rover. Still no start. Then started to check for spark. No spark at the spark plug wire to manifold test. No spark at coil wire to manifold test. Replaced coil. Still no spark. Checked my main relay and fuel relay for power, there's power. Don't know how to check relay switches so replaced them with new ones. Checked all fuses under passenger and drivers seat. I am getting power to coil, actually on both the negative and positive side (not sure this is normal, is it?) Parts I decided to replace so far are distributed, ICM, Coil, MAF, and Relays, not specifically for this no spark issue but over the last few weeks. I am getting fuel to intake but haven't tested pressure yet. No sure that would result in a no spark issue. I'm in this abusive relationship as a fellow RRC owner posted. This is our group therapy for loving what punuishes us for loving it. Any thoughts.. What am I missing?
