Brief Description of initial problem:

While driving I turned and car started acting like it was not getting fuel. Went about 1 mile and then it died. Waited 20 min and it started up but died after 1 mile. Waited 2 days and then drove 6 miles and it died and will not turn over.

Checked the following: Fuel filter, Fuel pump, fuel pressure, Control colum wiring harness, Fuse boxes BOTH. Main Relay good. Do not have the igniter checker which should be next logical step (I believe).

Questions: How do you check the coil igniter unit (trailing and leading)?

Can it be the Control Unit?

Please advise.

Desperate for assistance.

eaiest way to check the ignition is just to put a timing light on it.
