ignition wires, spark plugs and air filter. Worked fine for a couple of days. Ran an errand, car wouldn't start. Started on third try. Had mechanic replace ignition rotor and distributor cap. Worked fine for couple of days, ran an errand, car wouldn't start until the 7th time. Started up and drove it home. I was told it was not a fuel filter problem. There is no "clicking" (solenoid problem) or battery corrosion.The car is clean, garaged, rust-free. What now?

Hi Calico9,

Thank you for the donation.

When engine could not start did you check if it was fuel or ignition sparks that was missing?

The PGM-FI main relay is known to intermittent fail resulting in the fuel pump not getting power supply.

I would suggest checking it out, resoldering of the relay joints would solve the problem.
