    2 weeks ago the distributor died, the car sat and the alarm killed the battery. i replaced the distributor and jumped the car and it cranked and cranked but no start. not even a sputter.

    - Broken, loose or disconnected wiring in the starting circuit.
    14v at the starter

    - Loose distributor is changing ignition timing.

    Brand Spankin new Distributor

    The grounds are reading 0.6 Ohms from Valvecover to chassis and from Trans to chassis. so its not a ground issue. the distributor is sparking. the timing belt is fine. the car will not start on starter fluid. i dont know if the injectors are firing. the car is tuned on TurboEdit.

    * problem fixed. Timing belt jumped 4 teeth on intake cam.


      I would get a new belt/tenstioner for safety reasons. My $.02
