Jerry I would change the distributor cap and coil wire and coil. In fact I would get a tune up to include spark plugs, wires, rotor button and air filter.

1999 audi a6 wont crank sometimes


Either there is a bad or dirty battery connection which is allowing the lights but no crank or you could have dirty or loose starter wires or starter relay may be bad or ignition is a possibility. All these can be tested with an ohmmeter for power. I would start with connections

My car cranks but does not start. i checked for spark but no spark is present.


it most likely is your ignition and firing order around your spark plugs. take out your plugs and inspect each and every one of them ok?
also if you have ignition boot coils perform a scan and see if there is any spark in your motor at all for that matter. last but not least you could have an electrical short and worst case scenario you may have to change out your ecm brain computer which is less than $200.

Car runs fine till it is turned off


two things come to mind....
1- a electrical component may be heat sensitive and not function after turn off heat soak
2- your fuel pump check valve isn't holding fuel pressure in the fuel loop 
Next time check for spark...if thers's spark it's a fuel problem

1996 cavalier will not crank


when it wont crank, you will need a test lite to ck the small wire at starter for a 12 volt signal when commanded to start by the key. also make sure there is 12 volts from battery going to larger wire on starter. if so and still wont crank, starter replacement is probable. (assuming grounds are clean) they can be very intermittent. another quick test would be while trying to start, holding key in start position, rap lightly on starter with hammer to see if it kicks, if so, replace starter.
