Now this may well seem like a very simple situation that has happened to
most of us at one time or another. My car won't start! I turn the key,
there is action, the engine is turning over but no spark! It is not
firing. I replaced the spark plugs as I reckoned they were getting a bit
long in the tooth - still no joy. I checked the leads and they look a
bit 'iffy' at the distributor end so I will replace them. The car has
electronic ignition so its not a normal dizzy setup. My question is,
"what are the things I should be looking at the find the problem?" I
will check the petrol flow, maybe change the petrol filter and then
change the leads - anything else? All help will be much appreciated.
