The CEL comes on after the car sits for a while and the engine cranks but wont start. Once the light goes off car starts and runs great. How long I have to wait depends on how long its been sitting. Usually doesn't happen when the weather is nice. If its raining forget it. I already checked the battery, fuses, and distributor ignitor module. Diagnostic code reader says no code present. Dont want to spend tons of cash on the car b/c its not worth much anyway. Thinking about replacing entire distributor with a reman? Idk what to do now?

Have a pro frun scans he may get something youcan't check fuelpressure as well. Check crank and cam sensors for high resistance as well as connections
