UNUSUAL STARTING PROBLEM KE70

1981 Toyota Corolla

Hi, I have a 1981 ke70 corolla with the 4kc 1300cc motor. It has done 200,000km. I was driving today and the engine died. It was just like turning off the key. Every time I try to start it the engine fires and then immediatly dies. It will start but will not run even for a second. Fuel is ok do ypu have any other ideas? Thanks.

P.S. This is the Australian corolla if that makes any difference.

Check your coil and distributor pick-up inside and its connections if its okay check the ignition switch in and out
