Im being polite in all my messages and I hope u did not mean the beginning of ur message in a negative way because there is no need for that but assuming ur not thanks for ur response. Im quite an intelligent individual and have tried many things but keep having negative results. I am hoping someone will have opinion on something that I have not yet tried. I almost feel stupid asking almost the same thing over and over again so it is quote frustrating for me. Is there way to test the parts like my pip or my coil because I feel like its got to be my pip or my coil. Im just really lost. Please don't take my beginning message wrong just trying to explain and seehow u meant things. Again thanks for ur support and dedication to a problem that is not urs.
No I did not mean it in a belittling or negative way.
I never do that to anyone, for any reason and I am not questioning your intelligence.
Sometimes text seems to convey things that are not particularly in the context the typist intended, so don't be offended easily by any typed replies.
I try to help and learn from users in any way I can and so far we've had pretty good luck with that.
I also have a very good reason for how I do things. As a site administrator it is my job to view posts and make suggestions or to even insist about how to post on the site and what can or cannot be posted.
You are wrong that no one will see it if you keep posting in the same thread. The age of the thread does not matter as long as it remains active. Whenever a post is made in the thread it moves to the beginning of the line again.
Making new posts about the same thing clutters up the forums and makes it harder for anyone answering your question to determine what you might have already tried, because it is scattered throughout several posts.
Yes, you can test the PIP and the coil.
There are procedures on how to do so in most of the Chilton's and Haynes manuals or you can Google it online.
