I replaced the ICM as they are very sensitive to heat damage. Put it together and it still fires and dies while turning the key. Won't stay running. It fires and stalls in cycles while the starter is cranking. Bad distributor? I did notice a little oil past the "O" ring when removing the distributor.

The car ran fine for several days. Then started with a rough idle (misfiring). Then ran ok for a couple more days. Now it fires and stalls, fires and stalls with the starter turning. Won't stay running. I have replaced the ICM. Tried an new coil and have replaced the main relay. I smell unburned gas so I know it is getting fuel. It seems like a spark problem. What else do I try?
