I'm going to assume you have a 318? Also going to assume that the wires and plugs are in good shape? When it's not starting, do you have spark? If not, do you see spark for any part of the time when you crank it? Have you made sure that the carb is OK and not flooding the engine?
What I just said is'nt a "fix...yet...I need to know this stuff first.

Start from square one. Check for Fuel, Air, and Spark. If it's no spark, look for a Bad coil, bad/misadjusted pickup coil(s) in dist, bad starter relay, then set everything to stock spec. If no good, check your new parts. Lots of junk aftermarket parts out there.

My 1985 ford bronco will not fire out of the distributor but it will fire out of the coil


Check the distributor cap for cracks or dirt that can short circuit the spark.
Check the leads and the rotor. if there is spark at the coil then you are loosing it at the distributor or the coil lead.

1985 Nissan 300zx seems to be "missing".


suspect 1) bad spark plug(s) - change whole set if needed, (2) failing ignition coil (3) failing
distributor component(s), or (4) worn out distributor cap and/or rotor - if these need to be changed,
change both the cap and rotor as a set.
COST: if yo do any of these repairs yourself, your parts costs would be fairly low, but getting a garage
to rebuild your distributor could be costly

Changed distributor cap now car will not crank


You should check to make sure that the rotor button is in place. Also check the coil wire and the fire orderr to make sure that no wires are crossed. These are pretty much the only reasons why your car won't crank with the distributor cap change.

My car isn't firing. I changed my ignition coil, but distributor still isn't getting any spark(new wires,dis. cap,ign coil)


Without looking at the diagram on our model Is suspect the pickup in the distributor has gone bad. In the early type distributors the pickups are prone to go bad but ground the wire from the coil to the cap and remove the cap, have a friend turn the engine over with the starter for a few seconds, check that the rotor button is turning !

Stalls out about every 10 miles or so,let sit bout 5min,restarts


have you changed the plugs and leads, if you don't know the last time it was started there is a few things you need to take into account, engine oil and spark plugs fuel filter even the fuel in the tank empty and replace, coil and the points ( if upgraded there is no coil and points as been converted) you would also need to clean out the carburetor as old fuel drying can block or limit fuel entering the engine. change air filter. even standing an engine for a year or 2 these parts can degrade as they have not been used. also change the water and flush the system and refill with coolant/antifreeze.
