Okay its got a 1.9TBI in it. I was driving down the highway and it started to rain and it just stalled out so I pulled it over and it would not start back up (Has Fuel). I left it there for about 45 mins after messing with it for a bit to try and see what it could be. I came back to it and messed with it a bit more and it started right up no prob. I got it off the highway to a local truck stop so it would not get towed left it there for about 10 mins not running to walk back to get my truck off the highway and got back to it and would not start again. I checked ther all power to it witch is all good except ~no spark~. Coil has power in and out of it to distributor but no power from distributor to plugs. Used a check light to check this. Pulled off cap and points and roter was dirty so cleaned off a bit and still nothing at all. Any sugestions?
