in cold weather the fuel will freeze up.. usually when cheaper fuels are used the ethanol aditive(corngas) has a byproduct called water..this will freeze in low spots in the fuel system.. each car need 3 things to run.. fire (spark) fuel and air..if one of these 3 arent present it will not run..
You might want to check the pick up coil inside the distributer..Also make sure you dont have excessive play in the distributer shaft..Are you sure your losing only fire..What about injection control and fuel..?
sounds like the crankshaft and or the camshaft positioning sensors.. they're locate dn the top of the engine block, typically towards the front of the engine... should be a cheap test/ replace fix thing as they are like 6 bucks each - once you have the part in hand, it shouldn't be too hard to locate and replace.. Best regards Ck
most likely the module that goes inside of your distributor is bad.i had the same thing happen to me on my astro van i owned a few years ago.i would drive it for a while then shut it off.it would not start until it completely cooled down, then it would start back up right away.i replaced the module inside the distributor( which cost me about 45 dollars at the time)and the van never had that problem again.it would start up every time no matter how many times i turned it on or off.hope this info helps you.take care and good luck, manny
your injector or fuel pump may be going out, next time when you check the issue, check your distubutor again and making sure you getting sparks, if you do have sparks than it has to be your fuel problems.
