2 day`s ago it wouldn`t start. Cranks over fast,but doesn`t even try to
fire.It is getting gas,but before I check the pressure,I`d like to know
what it should be while cranking. It has spark,and I have also replaced
the fuel filter.
Should I check the compression?
The plugs look good.Not wet from gas or oil.
Im having the same problem, but can get it started if I use a screwdriver
and jump between coil wire and distributor cap, then runs fine, but turn it
off and leave for an hour and wont start again,,,
my 89 chevy had similar problem. the ignition control module located in the
distributor was bad. had it checked out at local napa store, they had
equipment to run check. $ 34.00 let me know how you did. good luck
