1992 4 cyl will not start
Hello guys, new kid on the block here.
My 1992 2.3 4 cyl will not start. It cranks fine, but there is no spark when cranking from either coil pack. However, if I coast down a hill and pop the clutch, it fires right up and thereafter runs fine. Sure wish I had a distributor, which would be easier to trouble-shoot.
I think this problem has been developing over time as the engine has previously been hard to start on occasion. A couple of times it refused to start, but if I waited, and came back a bit later it would go. Now that "occasion" is all the time. (yes I should have dug in previously, but intermittant problems are hard to find.)
I suspect the crank position sensor or the ignition control module, but I do not like to easter-egg repairs. Also, the crank sensor appears not as easy as some to replace.
Thanks for reading; I hope someone has a clue.
