1985 Plymouth Reliant, spark to coil and plugs will not start, fuel goes to injectors
This car is a 1985 Reliant. It has spark to the coil and plugs, fuel getting to the system, cranks but will not start. The timing belt is a bit worn, could this be the problem? Is $246.00 a good estimate for repair if I provide the parts?

Yes, the pick-up coil was a common cause of what you describe.
Drive along and suddenly die, but by the time help arrived it would re-start, and run for a while again, then quit again until it cooled down.
Sounds like vapor lock. This means that fuel is being boiled before it reaches the engine. Check for loose insulation, gas line exposed to exhaust pipe, etc. basically your gas has to remain cool before it gets used by the engine.
if the timing belt is not turning than either your starter is bad and not throughing out the start gear or the flywheel is bad and not recieving the startere gear to turn the motor over. because the timing belt should spin when turning the eng. over...
i had this or similar sounding issue with my robin trike, after lots of messing about it was found to be a loose alternator not generating enough charge to keep the battery topped up. I imagine the drive round the block used quite a bit of your battery (30 amps approx just to start it) thats when i got my stalling and sluggish responce, not enough power to fireup the plugs 100% run a volt meter on the alternator and the battery
Yeah, The fuel filter for a 2.2L plymouth reliant Le is on the passenger side just before the rear tire. Its like right next to the gas tank. Sort of in by the middle (not by the body frame). Hope this helps.
