93 probe 2L intermittent start
I have a 93 probe 4cyl 2L Z-vin.
I drove it to work Thursday - when I came out to go home, it wouldn't start - just crank.
I checked and there as no spark
I'd had the exact same issue before and resolved it by replacing the dist. I know the distrib on this model has a weak design so I replaced it, but still no luck.
The rotor turns, I checked the fuses and the relay - all ok.
I was checking voltage on the yellow/blue-stripe wire at the dist and I noticed, when my daughter turned on the key this time, a fan or motor started somewhere that I hadn't heard before.
For grins I had her turn it over and magically it started! I drove it home, shut it off, it restarted fine. I drove to the gas station -restarted fine, walmart - fine, drove to church, and when I came out to go home, it wouldn't start. I went back that night (rode with my wife) and just for grins jumped in and gave it a try and it started! I drove it home, tried to restart it, and it hasn't restarted since.
I checked the inertia switch - assuming that is a square box mounted to the fender wall on the drivers side trunk near the tail light, with a rubber button that might have once been red - it seemed to be already depressed.
With the key in the on position, the fuel cutout light is on but I don't know if that is normal when the engine isnt running, or if that would prevent spark.
On this car, coil, ignition module, everything (practially) is built into the distrib, so I've already changed most of the things you would normally go for.
So I'm not sure where to go from here. When it runs, it runs fine
does anyone have any ideas?
