The ignition system on these vehicles and engines have many issues that may cause the no start. The first thing to check is the distributor cap and rotor for burn through. If okay, then the coil, ignition module and starter in the distributor need to be checked. Sometimes one fails and shorts one or more of the others. If the vehicle is checked and no ignition spark is found, then the coil and module is one of the most likely causes. To have your starting issue diagnosed, a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, can come to your home or office to ensure that the right repairs are made.
