Eventually I replaced the coil with an available coil I had run the car with for four years. The car started immediately, ran for that day and the next day with several starts and stops. After sitting for two days, the car would not start - acting like there was no spark at all going to the cylinders. Last resort was to replace my old four-year running coil with another new Bosch coil, with no apparent success in spark to the cylinders.
I am wondering if I should go back to a points-and-condenser setup on this car and avoid the transistor setup, resistors, etc, or is there some kind of intermittent circuit problem that is causing this? I don't have enough money to continually chase a ghost of a problem, and AAA is getting tired of my free towing calls.
have the same problem?
