Question about 1994 Dodge Spirit
My car starts ok and runs fine for the first three to four starts. Then when I try to start it won't. I check the coil for spark and there was no spark from the coil to the distributor. I changed the coil and the problem persists. After I replaced the coil I took the car for a nine mile run. It ran fine. When I parked and then started after about two hours it would not start. I left it overnight and it started fine. It has also started running even after the ignition is turned off. Usually runs for about five seconds. I have had the ignition switch replaced. Any suggestions?
Check the Hall Effect pickup which is under the distributor rotor. It will cause the problems you are describing if it fails. It might be sticking, then when you play with the cap or rotor you jar it loose for a while. It tells the computer that the engine is turning, like a crank sensor. Cheap fix if that's what it is.
