do you have a hole in the piston or gasket? If in the piston it is most likely from coolant or water. If water, could be a cracked head, or being sucked in through the intake and building up in the 6th cyl. I have a lexus that had a hole in the side of the motor and noon could figure out why. I pulled the head and found water... Put new block in and egr codes came up. Pulled EGR and found it was sucking in water, due to an exhaust leak that was allowing condensation to build and would not blow out once in the egr tube. If you face the same problem (hole in block) I am going to say too much compression. Could be from head gasket not being torqued properly and leaking cooland, cracked head, or wrong spark plugs-and worst case scenario which I have yet to witness, bad spark plug gap. Not likely on your car, i would think.

It started without the distributor cap? That is impossible. I suspect you may have plug wires mixed up. Make sure it is wired as the diagram shows. Also replace the rotor.

Its either a faulty ignition control modulke or a faulty distributor ignition pickup which both are located inside the distributor.

The tdc needs to be on (compression stroke)you can use a compression gauge to judge compression stroke.or the old school way I do is take out #1 plug and put finger over plug hole in head,let someone bump the starter until the compression blows your finger away from hole. Roll engine by hand.(socket and breaker bar on crank bolt if needed) slowly clockwise to Line up marks. Install distributer with button pointing toward #1 prong in cap.
