Correct. Suzuki uses term "igniter", for the pickup module. Its under the distributer cap, under the rotor, under a dust cover (if its still there), next to the rotor shaft.

Thank you, I wasnt sure if that was it. Have you had any experience with these things? Some people are telling me thats what is wrong with my sammy. I drive it for a bit and the motor stops. Everything else works but the engine. It cranks but wont start for a while. Then it does. Any info is apreciated...

What is the basis for this diagnosis?
When it fails to start, do you have spark while cranking?

I dont know about spark, Im usually by myself. What happens is I will be driving for a bit and the engine will stop running. Radio, lights all work. The engine just stops, Itll crank it just wont turnover. I wait for about 20 min to a half hour, it starts and I drive home. Can you think of anything else it might be?

Sounds like the typical symptoms when a coil is going bad. Get hots, expands and develops a short.

No Haptown Im not young and I dont see what my age has got anything to do with it. I came on here to look for help with my samurai, you want to help great, you dont then dont. I know my way around an engine and all I was stating was I never heard of it. That doesnt make me stupid or "young", just not knowing that can happen. I apreciate all the help, but dont knock me.
