Car misfires when hot

Got an interesting problem. Recently the car started misfiring when getting hot. What I noticed is that if I throw a new ignition rotor in it, the problem will go away for a few days, and come back doing the same thing. It's as if something is burning the rotor up.

I've changed Ignition coil, cap, rotor (several times), wires and plugs, but no luck in getting rid of the misfire. What can this possibly be?

Make sure no fault codes are present first......

I hope everyone reads this. Whenever you car starts acting up, as long as it running, just pull the codes first. Don't throw money at a problem you not sure of. The ECM is full of useful info, so use it.


Now, it sounds like you problem is while its in closed loop. Or a heat induced wiring problem. But pull the codes first. Its free and easy to do.

PIP sensor in the dizzy gets my vote. A.K.A magnetic pickup or stator.

mine did that. turned out to be a bad spark plug wire that had been too close to one of the header tubes. i had equal length headers at the time and they had a tendency to burn up wires.

Do you really think it's a ground? You can also take the armature off(it's the little wheel the rotor sits on) and clean it up with some sandpaper. If the "teeth" are rusted or chipped it could cause a problem.
