I TRIED TO RESTART BUT IT WOULDN'T SO I HAD IT TOWED. WHEN I TRIED TO RESTART IT AFTER THE TOW IS STARTED RIGHT UP? AND FOR NOW I CAN'T GET IT TO DUPLICATE THE PROBLEM BUT I KNOW IT WILL SOON, WHEN I'M ABOUT 50 MILES FROM HOME!!!!!
So let's assume you've checked the basics;
connections to coil, plug wires, cap and rotor.
Check the connection to the water temp sensor mounted on the right side of the engine block.
What about the condition of the battery positive and ground wires?
Also check the condition of the wire from the distributor. It sends as pulse to the ECU. If that pulse is not present, the engine will not run.
Check connection to fuel pump and fuel pump relay. When it died and you tried to restart the engine, did the you hear the fuel pump run for a few seconds after the key is put in the "on" position before you move it to the "start" position?
