My volt meter reads 12 to 13 volts . but when I turn
the key and the starter turns engine over the
voltage drops to like 4 maybe 5 volts . so the coil
dont have enough volts to do its job. Please help .
Thank you very much
Sincerly . bradford.
Sounds like bad battery. Should not drop low. Take battery and have it charged than tested at an auto store. They will put a load test on it and ca tell u.
My thoughts exactly. But if the battery tests ok then test the starter for current draw. If the starter current draw is excessive, replace the starter. Hope that helps! Jim
Ok . thank you guys . I will take battery to auto parts store and have it tested. I will get back to you .
One more question please. Is it possible that my coil in my distributor will work until it gets hot then cut out and car stalls. Or could the ignition module be working when engine is cold then not when engine is. Hot ? Thank you for your input.
When the ignition is in the start position you should have 12 volts at the ignition coil. When in the run position you should have 6 to 8 volts at the ignition coil. Hope that helps! Jim
Thank you. Good info. . silly me . I kept thinking the problem was electrical . but itwas the fuel filter was plugged up bad. Starts and runs great. Thank you all for your help. Your awesome
Be cautious though...or battery still sounds to b bad!
