so the other night I went to leave my sisters house and go to start my car well it just cranked and cranked and cranked so i checked the wires, no spark then moved to the coil wire, no spark swapped out the coil, no spark so i figured it lead to the crank sensor seeing how that was next on the list well it turns out that once I replaced that it still does not start so I had my brother-in-law tow it to my workplace(a garage) and monday I will be going in early any ideas of what I should look for its getting fuel and air just no spark also one of my friends mentioned "cancer" in these cars where the wires rot and create bad grounds but hes not to much of a reliable source
shes fixed took a risk and replaced the coil she runs fine now put a short shifter in and when I'm in reverse first or second the stick rubs the driveshaft but I'll be able to fix that myself thanks for the help guys
