Hi! Got a 97 2WD A/T with 100K on it. Ran great until a week ago...hard to start in the morning. Engine turns but will not engage. After about 5 tries (never took more than 2 attempts before), it started...and ran smoothly all day (freeway and city driving). The next few days, the hard starting did not pick a time anymore.... when I turn off the engine and try to start it after 5 minutes, won't do it! It has become a hit and miss thing now! I was able to take it to my mechanic while it was running (once it runs it doesn't die at all). He did try and replace 3 major electrical parts: igniter, crank sensor and the distributor. He says the problem is NO SPARK during starting...or rather intermittent sparking. After a week of trial and error, he gave up...and told me to try the dealer!!! Any clues? anyone out there experienced this phenom?... NEED UR HELP! before I cough up chunks of money to the dealer! Thanks!
