I have a 12/92 323 and it wouldn't start.I discovered no spark.I replaced the distributor and it started imediately. After 2 days of running it stopped.I replaced the coil and the distributor again. Still no spark. There is 12.4 volts at the coil.

Check the ignitor if its not built in with distributor-You have replaced the distributor still no spark. Pull the coil wire from the distributor and ground it crank engine over do you have spark.

OK, get this.
I put the new module on and still no spark.
I disconnected the distributor and module.
I turned key on and just did a quick touch to ground the negative wire at the coil and there was a spark at the coil wire. Now I put back all the old parts and
was going to have towed to shop, and just tried it for the heck of it. It started ! But stopped in 2 minutes.
I give up

Bicardi and Coke.
