There are 2 sensors that fix this problem, about 50.00 per at the part store... Husband fixed problem in about 20 minutes (most of the time was spent looking for the sensor)

Sometimes starts. Sometimes doesn't. Sometimes starts and runs really rough and then cuts off. Heard it's the oil that drips in the distributor and shorts the optical sensor.
Car ran for a few minutes then died would not re-start, it just turns over. Next morning it started and ran again but only a few feet and died. wont re-start, just turns over. Its getting fuel, I suspect the distributor or a relay (but which one) may be bad.

Distributor leaked oil into the body of the distributor causing engine tobarely run. Replaced with a rebuilt distributor and problem was solved.
