Sounds like a bad ignition switch It when the switch is in crank mode it should supply power to the run position as well but if gets worn the contact will not spread power across

74 malibu. Starts but wont stay running. New starter, New Fuses, New distributor. Spark plugs are firing and fuel is getting to engine.


It seems like you have overlooked something.
If you have spark and fuel, it should keep running.
Sometimes the key switch is faulty and you loose spark when you turn the key back to the run position.
You should be able to run a jumper wire to the coil and crank the engine over to see if you are loosing power to the coil.

No fire in coil pack.


Was the timing chain damaged ?
Did you have spark from the coil before you replaced the other parts ?
Do you have battery voltage on the positive side of the coil with the key on and in crank mode ?
Is the coil wire not sparking, or are you not getting spark at the plugs ?
Is the distributor rotor turning when you crank the engine ?

Hi,from the clues you give I guess that the starter motor is in need of a service (worn brush gear) I presume that when it does not start that the engine does not make a cranking noise.
If the engine is cranking but failing to fire up, then it could be anything from the fuel pressure pump to the engine control system. there is a lot of clever stuff going on when you start your engine. Some simple things you should try first. Check visually that all vacuum hoses and wiring is secure and in good visual order( dodgy looking wires are prone to intermittent failure!... Do this next time it fails to start and recheck after gently adjusting ? wd 40 may ease problem temp. Also check service of spark plugs especially correct gap.
Make a note of engine temp/ and air temp. loose wires are usually more loose in cold mornings!.. starting enrichment may not be sufficient with a wide plug gap. Check battery for full power output on starting. will it pull the car on the starter /
