My car will not start. It cranks but acts as if it is not getting spark or fuel. This has happened once before last year and a few things are common between both times. Cold weather just around freezing, fuel level is around 1/8-1/4 tank, but it certainly has fuel.
Last year I took the distributor cap off and tested the components inside with an volt/ohm meter using procedures I found online. Everything checked out. Put it back together and nothing. Took a break to warm up and then went out and tested to make sure it had spark by removing one of the wires. It had spark so I put the wire back on the plug and it started right up. Never found out what the problem was.
Not sure if the cold weather or gas is part of the problem but very coincidental both times. Not sure where to look now.
Thanks for any help
have the same problem?
