    well it depends what the code is in particular.... in obd1 92-95 all cam and crank sensors were in the dizzy, if you were getting this code on an obd 1, youd be replacing the dizzy. if your car is obd2, which is what im assuming, it uses a crank sensor AT THE CRANKSHAFT, not inside the distributor, so your code could be saying its not gettin signal from the crank sensor , they arent too bad to change if thats the case.

    more info could help your situation! :)

    so update

    my sister went to auto zone and they pulled a "misfire" code and advised her to change cap, plugs and wires...
    then it won;t start at all
    so she got a new dizzy
    still no start
    new rotor and still no start

    when it did start the computer light was solidly on and then flashing while it was running... the only time i have seen this is when i left the code jumper hooked up on my P28, started the car and the CEL flashed while it was running...

    so is her computer shot?
    i was also told to look into the blue box relay on the kick panel and to check the internal coil/make sure the spring was all the way in the cap and making correct contact...
