HARD STARTING

1993 Dodge Colt

Well I need help ! For sure!

whats goin on is I have determined that I am getting juice to the plugs when the ignition is in the run posistion, but none when the ignition is in the cranking posistion. I have the juice coming to the coil when the ignition is in the run posistion and its 12 volts , when cranking its 10 volts. The car will sometimes starts and run good most times not. If I push the car with the ignition in the run posistion, it will start right up. Once started it always runs great.
can anyone help me ! 1.5 litre engine sohc 1993 dodge colt, fuel injected. Don in the darkk

When was your last tune up or gas filter change
the way your checking for spark you are checking The primary circuit and im not sure you are doing it the right way or u didnt explain it right to us

check for spark @ the wires
pull one off the plug and check it
good luck

recently installed a new gas filter, new distributer new wires rotor and cap. We hooked an induction timing light to a plug wire and cranked got no light untill I let off the cranking then got spark. The voltage I read the voltage at the coil two wire connector, with the ignition in the on or run posistion 12 volts when cranking 10 volts, this is the connector that is on the outside of the distributer body, that connects to the coil. Sure hope you can give me an idea of whats up thanks again !

How about you switch the test light to b+ and check the wires on the coil
While a helper cranking for u
Watch the light does it blink while cranking
If it does and no start u need a coil
