If it won't start even after letting it sit awhile, my money
is on the igniter (also known as the ignition module). Very
When's the last time the car had new plugs, wires,
distributor cap and rotor, too? Were OEM parts used for
Tegger's site's starting/running problems section is an
excellent place to start.
1 year ago we replaced the plugs and wires. Not OEM.
We are going to work on it today after work.
Fingers crossed. I want to avoid a mechanic at all costs. I have NEVER had a
good exp. with taking any car to a mechanic.
Thanks for the replies.
Will update tomorrow.
From my experience with my 91 Civic, Tegger's site's counsel
about using only using OEM for ignition parts is right on.
The car will run best with OEM ignition parts and they will
maximize the life of the other ignition parts.
Reports here are that non-OEM plugs most definitely can
cause running problems. Amazing how changing out Bosch plugs
in particular can bring a car to life.
I know it's more expensive. Believe me, I'm frugal. But the
OEM ignition parts pay for themselves.
