Question about 1983 Plymouth Gran Fury
Check the ballast resistor (white ceramic block about 2 in long on the firewall, they are about $2. (You may be depressed you spent the $$ on a tune-up for a $2 part if it solvs the problem, but hey, it needed a tune up anyway.) There are two types of resistors so pay attention to what it looks like & how many wires. It controls the spark when the engine heats up and is in the coil circuit. You don't say, but make sure the rotor turns when you crank it over. The B-block is a very tough engine but if the cam or the distributor drive gear are broken might cause the symptom as well.
