Aight, granted its chinese crap, shouldnt it be good NOW, Ill deal with it busting in 6mos when I get there, buy an oem unit then.Aftermarket dizzy’s are still notorious for failing on these cars, much like my mustang when a COP coil failed I looked everywhere and there is no good alternative options. It’s basically oem or you’ll be replacing it in 6-12 months.
Even a reputable company like MSD outsources a lot of the less popular components and they’re just cheap Chinese junk. Holds true for both 99-04 mustangs, and integra’s/90s hondas
Not entirely an option, any way to test the unit??I would get it swapped if that’s an option, or try to find someone with a known working oem one and try it if possible
Also I’m not trying to sound like a condescending dick, even though that’s probably exactly what I look like :lol: Believe it or not there used to be hundreds of us in this dead ass place, and dizzy problems were common, and almost always traced back to a crap aftermarket unit, or just a dead oem distributor so I’m just trying to write off what it’s more likely to be before moving on to more complicated solutions.
Good call on checking the dizzy plug, Ill try and find time to check today...There’s probably a technical way but google would be more helpful than me on that :lol:
One way you might be able to tell is get yourself a test light if you don’t have one, they’re super cheap, and have someone crank it while you probe the plug that plugs into the dizzy and look for the ignition pulse/signal. If the dizzy is getting signal and you’re not getting spark then there’s a real good chance the dizzy is just dead.
