    ok my delsol d16z6 has been running fine and 2 days ago it randomly wont start, it cranks but wont start. I figure its either a fuel or spark problem, i took off my cold air intake and sprayed gas in the intake manifold and tried to start it and it didnt even spudder so i pulled a spark plug and grounded it to the intake and cranked it and no spark so idk what kind of ignition system it has so please help me out and give suggestions. thanks.

    Hey man, the D16z6 are known for running one min and dien the next due to a Dizzy failure... Basicly you need a new Dizzy or a new Dizzy core.. go to a scrap yard get one or Autozone or something and purchace a new one and ya car will fire right up

    ICM.... its winter... now in the summer the coil mite go out... best bet is to barrow some cash and just swap it out for now and rebuild it later so u always have a spare! :) change in 10 mins in a parking lot with a 10mm or 12mm socket lol
