Why did it die?


:?:
I dont understand it, but any ideas will be greatly appreciated. My car died on me Friday night turning into traffic. It was running fine then all of a sudden it just..stalled. I have checked for gas air and spark and was suprised to find no spark on any of my wires. I bought a new coil pack and module, stuck it in and still no spark. So now I am in the process of pulling out my crankshaft position sensor, I have fuel and air, Is there anything else it could be? I have heard of a no start condition if the M.A.P sensor goes. Is this true? I am hearing a little clicking when I turn the car off up top near the throttle body, Where my tps is located will a tps cause a no start condition? I Have searched the computer and no codes have been set all it shows is the 1...2 Diagnostic mode

My car is a 1990 3.1 Chevy Corsica. It has distributorless ignition

Chance are it's the crankshaft position sensor or the wiring to it.Be careful not to break it.Let me know if it breaks.

There are many things that could cause an idle mifire does it run rough while driving?
