Re: No Spark at Coil - 200TQ - Help!

May want to check that your distributor, cam, crank are lined up RIGHT ON.
Even off a little bit from the distributor and the crank, then it won't
start.  I've even seen where TQ's will start, and after the timing belt
warms up and stretches, the ignition cuts in and out.  Feels almost like
when your fuel cuts out from overboost (only not as traumatic).  Anyway,
that may help, maybe not.  But I would check that first. (even if your
mechanic thinks he is right on)
