Replace the ignition module and the distributor stator, that should cure the problem.

Check out the ignition module.
this will prevent the coils from going off or firing off.
its located in the distributer,, under the cap.

Wont start after running for a while. service lights work, radio, headlights but wont crank. just replaced starter, got new battery about a month ago. after 5-8 hours car starts with no problems.


Hot does make a difference. You say it won't start, but does it crank and not start, or not even crank? If cranks but will not start, any electrical part may fail as it heats, and when you shut it off the engine gets much hotter since coolant is no longer circulating. Thus, a marginal crank or cam sensor, or coil/ignition module may work while cold of while engine is running, but fail when you first turn car off.

It won't start: new battery, have lights, it just clicks when you turn the ignition switch


you mean it wont crank, it must crank to start.
1: bad starter system
2: weak battery even a new battery can be weak.
if you dont charge it first.
or if it starts ok then wont later, that means cars charge system failure.

can you jump start engine? with jumper cables.
that be a big clue there, proving starter works but battery was weak.
if the battery is fully charged.
you can hot wire the starter solenoid, (tiny terminal)
if car cranks now, the key start wire is failing.
A/T or M/T tranny? both use different path here....??????

if you cant hot wire it, then that means the stater is bad
the cables bad or the battery is not really connected.
or possible the engine is seized, can you hand turn over the engine at the front crank bolt (CW , facing rear, in neutral)
if not motor is seized.
some times even the starter and rig gear can be seized.
the starter can be bench tested. too.

WONT START


Thai is either ignition cylinder or starter coil, or a problem with starter motor/wirings to starter motor.

The starter motor must be energized directly (in neutral, and possibly using a remote switch) to check that is working.

If the starter motor is fine, check that there is power coming to starter motor when you ignite.
If there is no power, test power at ignition and eventually replace ignition.

Lights are on...nobody home.


Update....

Haven't had a chance to verify this for certain, but, I learned that if the starting system is in "interrupter mode" the engine will turn over, but not start. In my case, it will not turn over.....suggesting that my problem may lie elsewhere! This would prompt me to check my electrical circuits, cables,etc. Since I have lights, I would check my smaller lead running to the solenoid. With a volt meter...set on DC volts, closest to the voltage in question (in this case, 12 volts) ground the black lead of your volt meter to clean connection on engine or frame. Put the red lead on the solenoid terminal of the starter (the smaller of the two leads) Have an assistant turn key to starting mode. If you experience a voltage drop of 0.5 of a volt, but still dosnt activate solenoid, this would prompt me to check solenoid. To gain access to starter, remove heat shield. Before you procede with any procedure, disconnect the negative terminal of the battery. Make sure it does not come back into contact with terminal, as wire tends to have a "memory".

Its colder than hell right now...so havent had chance to follow up

Won't start not even click


I am pretty sure you have a bad solenoid on your starter. Sometimes if you tap on them while someone holds the key in start they will make contact and it will start. Best solution is replace solenoid. You can check it by having someone hold the key in start and measure the voltage from the small wire to ground, if it is bad you will have voltage but it will not even click. Hope that helps you.
