We have a EA-EB 4 litre Multi Point Station Wagon that wont start after being in the sun will turn but wont fire' need to leave the bonnet up 4 a hour or 2 before it will start (no spark).... have replaced coil ,distributer , mapping sensor ,computer ,fuel pump (dopey mechanic),leads, spark plugs and also modules and relays. So basically have cover all the basis. As we are not financially well off to go buy a new car we are at our wits in what is wrong and no mechanic is able to come up with a answer.

My ea was a bit of a mongrel to start at operating temperature and I found out my timing was out a fair bit. also my distributor wasn't in great condition. how is the timing at the moment?
