Default sometimes she starts, sometimes she doesnt...

my 95 gt runs great, but sometimes she just cranks and cranks, with no fire at all. i can leave it for and hour, or a day or 2 and not touch it, and it will start just fine and maybe run a week or so and the just not start at all. new coil, plugs wires cap and rotor, any suggestions on what it could be?

Default RE: sometimes she starts, sometimes she doesnt...

so when it cranks have you checked for a no spark condition??? or checked for no fuel condition??? if it's not getting spark does the no start usually occur after it's been run a while then shut off and when you come out from a store or so then it won't start??? possible 3 things to check for a no spark condition a tfi module, coil or pick up/ stator inside the distributor
