I'm wondering if you ever found out what happened to your car. I have a 1991 Mazda Protege LX. I have been having a hard time getting it to start for a while, but eventually it would. I was driving it today and it just stopped working while driving. It felt like everything quit working, check engine light came on, and now it's turning over but won't start. We started by checking the distributor. It had a little oil in it, but we tested the coil pack and it wasn't working. It's like I'm getting no power/spark to the coil pack and have no idea where to go from here!
Sometimes when I turn the key to start the engine, I have to keep turning the key until the engine starts; other times, engine will start during my first try with the key. What causes this?
This problem occurs either with the engine cold or hot, it does not matter. It does not sound like the starter.
I have replaced the alternator and the battery.the battery has been replaced twice within the last two days.
Coolant leak on '91 DOHC Protege coming from the seal between coolant bypass tube and the water inlet housing that attaches to the water pump. There's no clamp; only a rubber seal that fits over the end of the bypass tube.
The seal is very loose on the bypass tube, and is also too large to fit inside the inlet housing - is this supposed to be a "presses against the end of the housing" fit, or is the seal supposed to allow the bypass tube to slide into the housing?
Alternatively to replacing that seal, I'm wondering if I should just get a short piece of hose and clamp it over the connection.
Anyone with knowledge of this issue?

Car is overheating. It will stay at temp when drivin at 65 on highway. Water is moving in radiator, big fan is working on back of radiator.
It will start for a day or two. Then you will try to start it and all the lights come on but no click, no crank, nothing. Then the next day it will start right away. It has plenty of juice in the batte
