We're having trouble understanding what the problem is. Your recent posts say the car is running. So what's the problem?

Both ECU's (new) were put in. The car fired up right away and I could drive away with it. But, I let the car run parked for 15min.After 15min, I turned the car off (took key out), Waited 30min, restarted the car (fired right up again, ready to be driven away) again (just let in run in place again for 5min), shut it off for the remainder of the day.THe next day, car would not start.

As I read your posts, it sounds like you have a no spark condition now. Have you checked the flywheel sensors?

Need more info. When you say 'car would not start' do you mean the starter engages & the crankshaft turns but the engine won't fire or does nothing happen?

Thanks for understanding sloboy89. The next day I tried to start no spark so I will have the flywheel sensor check.

I just replaced my coil on 87 spider. That cured my no spark problem. Next would have been crankshaft sensors.
