its the ECM, 1 little thing wrong w/ a sensor, or wiring it will bug the whole system, really depend on what trouble codes it spits out

it could be a coil or an ignition control module
if its getting fuel and no spark, this is probably your problem. This is located inside the distributor cap, underneath the rotor

This is what it was on my 88 GT. I just fixed it yesterday.

I'll bet u its the ignition mod!!! Never seen a coil go bad yet..... JUST BE SURE YOU BUY AC DELCO!!!! If that doesnt fix it is the pick up coil (not the coil) again only use AC DELCO in your distributor.... It will save you from fixing it again and again..... Trust me on this one ;)

I had a similar problem a while back. It could be the sensors.
My problem was the cam sensor got moved when I took out a starter. Have you done any work latley on it?

this is more than likely it. plus its cheap, easy, and you could prob. use one anyway.
