is the engine turning faster than usual.is so might be a timing belt take the distribitor cap off and see if the rotor button turns while someone is cranking it.if its not sounding like the motor is turning over faster than usual while your cranking it.(sounds usual but just wont start)it could be the modual in the distribitor gone bad .thanks jeff

Try your local library for diagrams and pictures of both engines and that way you can figure out how the wiring goes

There is no test for module in distributor, but they often cause this kind of problem. Also while in there, check the pickup coil wires to make sure they are intact.

The piston needs to be rotated clockwise while compressing it into the caliper. This is due to it being part of the E-brake system also

its quite possibly the crank angle sensor as they do this when they heat up,the car wont start,till it cools down,you can get the resistance checked on it to see if its ok,but you will need someone with experience to do it but its not a hard job

Look on Ebay for a manual for this car. Anything late year you can find, but I doubt you'll find it online unless you get lucky. Hope this helps, good luck!

Pu t in new coil and distrubtor cap and rotor put in new electronic module not firing wont start


No spark at the spark plug? It may be the pick-up coil inside the distributor. This is the sensor that tells the computer the engine's crank position.
If the ignition switch is good, you should have power at the coil's + terminal when key is on. You might check for that.

Try changing the ignition coil.
The easy way to test this, is turn the ignition on,for about thirty second's ,then feel the coil ,if it is hot ,replace it.
