Hey there, thanks for writing in. From what you describe, it sounds like the engine TFI module on the side of the distributor is most likely bad and causing the no start hot. If you would like to have this verified and taken care of, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your car's location to diagnose the hard start and follow through with repairs.
