    Nahh...Its code8..I know they are all short from the start... I think It might just be the dizzy or a sensor insisde of it or something...I might just have to buy a new dizzy.. :shrug:
    The car starts like a pro, but after a few minutes or so, the check engine light will come on and when i come to a stop, the RPM drop and car shuts off...
    If i turn the key all the way back to (OFF)position and start it again, it starts with no problem and no check engine light on....Now a minute or two later the CEL' light comes back on.and the car starts boggin' again until it shuts off....I dunno....It might just be the dizzy....
    what do you guys think?..I dont wanna go buy the dizzy and that not be the problem...

    I Bought new Ign.Cap, spark plugs, PLug wires, Ign.rotor,and i even changed the danm Oil..lol

    should I just go ahead and get the one from Here!...?
    But look at the price off that thing...I wanted to buy me a fucki*g clutch and this happens....SH*TTTT! :angry:

    Ok, well I have had this problem a few times and if you r sure it's a code 8 for the TDC. Then the TDC sensor on an OBD1 system is in the distributor and there r quite a few things that can F**k that sensor up. If you have another OBD1 distributor you can swap out the guts of it and it might fix it. The easyest thing would be to just get a new distrib.
