Any tips of checking the HEI (Distributor) Ignition system? The '90
Olds 88 won't start. It gets fuel, because we can smell it when it
floods. It cranks over, but it does not catch. Next thing to check is
box, the ignition box or something. I've got a Calais repair manual,
is the 88 the same. Any clues for diagnosing an ignition system?
Did you ever get resolution on this?
I have 84 Cutlass cranks but doesn't catch. Been at mechanic for 2
Some days it starts other's it won't. Dampness seemed to be a factor
Still two or 3 times a week. Getting gas, Firing OK - replaced some
sensors, the computer and now the MAP sensor - Started fine for 3 days
- thought problem was finally eliminated .... then this morning - justs
cranks again and doesn't catch.
