As of 3pm today, the mechanic has yet to find out what it is. The car has been in the shop since 8am this morning. At first they thought it was a sensor and chased that, still wouldn't start. So then they tried the ignition module, got mixed results. Now they are replacing the coil packs to see if that will do the trick.
As of now I have no idea. I'm sure i'll have to pay a hefty labor charge since it's taking nearly an entire day just to DIAGNOSE the damn problem.
Mine is a 1990 with around 81,000 miles (it sat for a long time in some elderly man's garage.) So I don't see how this could be occuring.
It's odd that this seems to be a routine problem with this make and model of vehicle yet NO ONE seems to have any answer as to why or what it is.
I'll keep you updated as soon as I wake up from my coma after having seen my repair bill.
