Alright, my mother's car has been acting up...
She went to town day before yesterday, called and said it would start, then die... Then no start at all. got there,it wouldn't even hit with starting fluid into the air intake. A few minutes later, fired right up, ran great.
she drove as we followed her, then it died again on a feeder road, luckily there were plenty of places of business to pull into, just so happened, it died right in front of a car dealership.
any how, after it set a minute, fired back up.. Ran great. Drove it around yesterday. Ran flawless.
My mom went to pickup groceries last night, called, said it died on her.
Me and my brother grabbed a tow strap and took off... Got there, wouldn't hit a lick.
Brought it home after it had cooked off, fired up. Ran great.
This morning we're looking at it, we let it idle for a bit, it died.
Hooked up my trusty spark tester to a plug wire....no spark...
After it set for about 3 minutes, we tried to start it with the tester hooked up to the wire, and plug..It fired once then nothing....after it cooled again, fired right up.... I told my dad, next time it dies, check the spark coming from the coil to The distributor, as one plug wire from the coil to The distributor. So it died again, hooked the spark tester inline from the coil to distributor..Spark!!! Took the tester off and reinstalled the coil to distributor wire and it fired right up.... So sometimes when it dies, it fires right up, other times, it won't and has no spark.

When selecting parts for a car repair, it pays to know the differences between original and aftermarket parts. Whenever possible, get estimates for both.
Choosing between original and aftermarket car parts — and even used parts of either type — is all about squaring your priorities with your budget.
You’ll have different options depending on the part and the shop. And the best choice will depend on whether you’re trying to keep repairs cheap, restore your car’s appearance after a wreck or soup up your ride.
Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts match those that came with your car, and are of the same quality as its original parts. They’re also the most expensive.
The factory-recommended replacement intervals for filters can vary quite a bit depending on the year, make and model of the vehicle, as well as how it is driven. As a rule, older vehicles (those more than 15 to 20 years old) typically have more frequent service intervals than newer vehicles. Why? Because late-model vehicles require less maintenance, thanks to improvements in motor oils, transmission fluids, engine design and filter media.
Many long-life air and oil filters use synthetic fiber media or a blend of cellulose and synthetic fibers to extend filter life.
Changing the oil and filter every 3,000 miles was standard practice decades ago. But it’s no longer necessary because most multi-viscosity oils today are a synthetic blend or a full synthetic that resist viscosity breakdown and oxidation for a much longer period of time. Late-model fuel-injected engines also run much cleaner than their carbureted ancestors, which reduces oil contamination in the crankcase.
