I have an '88 yj Sahara. the engine will be running fine and then stops firing. the tac goes to 0 and the engine stops. I beleive the prob to be loss of power to the ignition coil. So my question is does anyone have a wiring diagram that can help me follow the wires from the coil to where ever they go.

thanks,
cgstrock

I had a similar situation on a 89 Islander (6 cyl)

It would run fine, then all of a sudden, turn off. This got to be so bad, it would not restart for minutes or hours.

I rebuilt the entire ignition system, coil, plugs, wires, etc.
And it still did it.

It turned out to be the ignition module on the drivers fender under the overflow tank.

Just be sure to look at all possibilites befor sinking a ton of $$ into an electrical gremlin.
