Sounds like the key switch is worn out. You should have power to the coil with the key switch in the on and start positions.

hey sounds to me like it's the alternator see when the alternator is not working properly the main source of direct energy comes from the battery and when that runs out it makes your car die . then it might turn on again but it does not last. u shuld have you alternator checked to make sure if not ask me again..

if you have changed the distributor cap,rotor button,spark plug wires and plugs and you still dont have fire then its most likely your distributor.first check the fuses or relays if you have replaced those items.
