Info Request
Hi there, For intermittent non starting, it could either be fuel, ignition or electrical. Testing have to be carried out to determine which of the 3 items is malfunctioning intermittently. To check for sparks, pull out a spark plug wire, attach a spark plug to it and ground to the engine. Get someone to crank the engine while you watch for sparks at the electrodes. If the spark is dull orange, the coil is weak. If no spark is available, you would have to check the power supply to the distributor and ignition coil. Are the dashlights showing while cranking the engine?
