Default no spark 98 saturn

I took it to a shop little over a month ago and they told me it was not getting spark but the got it running. Well a week ago started having the same issues so what I have figured out is that if I apply pressure on the top of the icm plug I can get it to run but if I let go of the plug it will stop running. Any ideas on how to keep this car going? Thanks!!

Most likely you need to replace the wire set.
How old and what type spark plugs?

Have you removed/cleaned ICM? Concur on possible wires but if it quits completely, sounds like connection issue on ICM.

^^ Correct. If the metal clip inside the wire boot is expanded, then that's why the connection only works when they hold the wire on the ICM. Replace wires and all should be fine.

Odd that a shop did not replace the wires a month ago.
