While the engine cranks it uses the distributor module to control the spark. Then when the car starts it switches to the computer to control spark. But the computer still need the rpm signal from the distributor to run. I would check all the power and grounds for the PCM. Also would test all the wires from the distributor to the PCM. If all of the test ok. You mite need a new computor.

I didn't know Auto Zone could test icm. I use them all the time. The computer can just be put in. Inless you have theft system. You need to program the key to the computer. Auto Zone's web site have a free online manual that will show you how to program it. Make sure you program it before trying to start the engine. There is no sensor keeping the copmuter from spraying fuel.

Car Brakes: How Do You Know When to Change Them?

By Zach Bowman For those who suffer a daily commute through heavy traffic, your vehicle's braking system can bring thousands of pounds of metal, plastic and empty Starbucks cups to a stop hundreds of times before you get to work.
