Do a quick google or forum search. When I had something similar there was a good "no start" checklist to isolate the problem. The dying while driving could be a bad PIP sensor in the distributor. Do hot or cold starts give you more of an issue? Many things to run down... TFI module, Fuel pressure, etc. Try to isolate before throwing a bunch if parts(money) at it.

When's the last time you did or had a tube up? Basically speaking and engine won't start due to either no power, which if its cranking you don't have that problem, no spark (could be with worn out parts) or no fuel. A partially clogged fuel filter can cause issues as well as fuel pump screen/sock being gummed up. When the trash settles it's good. Also if you have low compression that could cause starting issues. Most of these are simple checks minus the fuel pump sock, that one you have to drop the tank, but if you've never let fuel sitting for too long or had water/rust in the tank you should be good there. Don't have too much info to go off of. Have you checked to see if you are getting spark and fuel when it's not starting? Just too many possibilities, gotta narrow it down. Could be a coil going bad to.

That would make sense, could be your ignition module then.

If you have a stock distributor it's the little module that has a plug near the cap (bellow) on the side of the distributor.

I don't, I would think you could get it tested before you start throwing money at it. Maybe one of your local parts stores can check it for you.

I keep forgetting yours is newer, where the wires come out of the distributor, those should attach to the module. The older fox bodies have them attached to the distributor body, yours maybe close to the coil.

On the 94-95, the ignition coil is that little black box thing in your third pic that the short spark plug wire goes to.

He's actually looking for the ignition module. I have an older fox so mine is part of the distributor. I see on his the wires come out of the distributor body and connect to a plug. I'm thinking if you trace those wires it would lead you to the ignition module, bit I'm not real familiar with the 94-95. Hopefully someone with a 94-95 can help out.

Just did some research and it sounds like its under your air filter box.

Yeah, it is called the TFI module and it is under the air intake, but looks like you did that.

It shouldn't unless you have missing teeth on your distributor it slack in your timing chain that causes it to jump timing.

It's just easier to start with simple things to diagnose then jumping straight into part replacement.

I would, just toile site it's good. Timing being off can cause problems starting.

---------- Post added at 02:53 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:52 PM ----------

Just to make sure it's good.

Yeah, you'll have to have one to check. And don't forget to pull the spout connector before.
