I have an 81 mustang with a 2.3L 4cyl.I drive it every day,but the last month it has eating ignition control modules. They last about 5 to 7 days then it starts to misfire until I install a new module again.What could be causing the problem,the pick up coil in the distributor,the primitive computer,the ignition coil?

Welcome to M&M !
The only thing that I can think of that would cause that problem would be inferior modules. Look at the botom of one that has failed and see if there is any evidence of melting.
