You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem. Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ? It could be a relay, the ignition module, coil, fuel pump, or a list of other things.
It sure sounds like a bad Thick Film Ignition (TFI) module to me. (Also called Ignition Control Module) It mounts to the side of the distributor. You need a special socket to get the screws out of it. The socket and the module should cost less than $50 at most retail parts stores.
Use a 12 volt test light to check for voltage at the coil with the key turned to start. Connect the test light clip to engine ground and back probe the red wire terminal on the coil. If there is no power there, your problem is your ignition switch. If there is power there, back probe the same wire at the ignition module. If no power at the ignition module, the wire must be broke between the coil and the module. If there is power, the problem may be the engine control module. Let me know if you have questions.
This Sounds Axactly Like A INTERMITTEN IGNITION CONTROL MODULE Problem.
Check for SPARK While The NO START CONDITION is IN EFFECT and if NO SPARK
Replace IGNITION CANTROL MODULE
BUT If you DO Have SPARK then Go to the Fuel System and Start at the FUEL PUMP and EUS a PRESSURE GAGE to Check for PROPER FUEL PRESSURE, Also Fuel FILTER Could be A Candidate NOT VERY LIKELYBut Still Still May at Liest CONTRIBUTE to this Condition. But My Experience POINTS at The Ignition Control Module
Last week my 323 89' Mazda stop working as I was driving it in middle of the street, I pushed to the side. it would not start, the starter sounded ok, but the car just didnt start, I checked the fuses, gas pump, and all seemed to be ok, finally with the help of a friend we found out that the ignition rotor at the distributor wasnt working we then replace it with a new one from autozone , is about 5 dollars, now it works just fine, big problem easy solution.
