If the engine cranks but won't start, the fault may be internal to the distributor. Diagnosis will show no spark and trouble codes for the crankshaft position sensor (CKP) or the camshaft position sensor (CMP). Our technicians recommend replacement of the complete distributor assembly if these conditions occur.

Was running fine. Quit 15 miles from home sort of. Still would idle and could just press on the throttle for high idle but would cut out at 1500 RPM. Got the rig home at high idle. Now it would start again and run for less then a second and shut off. Fuel pressure is great (60PSI), Grouding the green connector doesn't produce any error codes. Seems to have spark. Adding gas (priming) to the intake manifold won't make it run. Note, The aftermarket tach quit at the same time the rig stopped. It was hooked to the pink wire on the distributor. (I know now it was not the proper connection for it.)
Turns over but won't start checked fuel pump n nothing it's still good was driving it when it died at the stop sign took forever to get it to stay again got it home but now it still turns over but can't get it started

Battery failed. Replaced battery, changed oil and filter. Replaced main 80amp fuse (blown). Tried to start, receiving fuel and injectors working. Replaced injectors 30,000mi ago. Acts like it wants to turn over but just cranks and cranks. Haven't replaced distributor yet.
