'91 Century Wagon 3.3L/V6: Intermittent spark
Hello! Newb to the forum. Got a problem I hope someone can help me with.
Last Saturday I went and started the car to go to work. It was a little hard starting, at first, but started and ran for not even ten seconds and died. It would not start again until a while later. But, then it did the same thing. It ran for less than ten seconds, died, and would not start again. No problems getting the motor to turn over. It just won't fire until a little while later. Haven't exactly timed it, but maybe an hour or so. It'* flooding. I can smell the fuel. Pump is definitely working. Pressure regulator doesn't seem to be leaking through the diaphragm. Problem is the spark is intermittent. When it dies there is no spark until I've waited. It'* like it'* "timing out" or something. Maybe something is warming up and then shuts off once it'* heated up a little? Like an ignition component?
I'm much more familiar with early EFI Toyotas. Kind of at a loss on this one. I've located the crank sensor and the plug is clean with good connection. I can test it, but I don't know what the ohm specs should be. All I have is a Chilton'* manual. It sucks for anything more than the very basics.
Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!
