Tach wire shutting down my engine
I can't make this crap up. So after my 4 month ordeal with my 6 speed trans I finally get it out for a cruise with my daughter and I broke down. The distributor cap broke (torque made it hit the firewall) and tore the rotor all to hell. Fine, I throw another one on and make my way home and it starts to run like crap. I pull over, mess with the cap, get it to start again and make it home. I go to start it and nothing. Long story short after replacing the cap, rotor, coil, module, and a whole new distributor I got nothing. Finally trouble shoot it to the factory tach wire going to the cap. Ohmed it out and it reads 0.3. Is this normal? If I hook it up the car won't start. Why will the tach wire shut the car off if it's grounded? Did I fry my tach? How do I test it? I did install a DIY tach filter and everything did work for over 100 miles. This car is going to give me an ulser.
