Dodge Colt '91 with a Mitsubishi 1.5 engine does not start what is the problem?

I had the same problem with 93 Colt and troubleshooters told me the ECM was bad. Incorrect...the problem lies inside your distributor. There is a part that looks like one of those batteries that connect to the bottom of a portable hand tool. I think its called a coil or coil package and is beneath the rotor inside the distributor. Bought one used for $20.00, reinstalled the entire guts of the distributor and car cranked right up. No problems since. Did not remove distributor shaft.

If you are having the same issues (starting problems-no spark) that I had in my 1991 accord, I found out that there appearantly was a recall on the distributor. Do not try to replace pieces and parts of the ignition system. (ie. coil, ignition control module, etc.) Replace the entire distributor. It will save you hours of frustration.

How do you adjust timing with a distributor cap that has latches holding it stationary?

The timing for this type of distributor is set by rotating the entire distributor, not just the cap. The distributor should have a lock down bolt holding it down where it sets in a housing. With the engine NOT running, mark the original position of the distributor with a marker or some white paint. Then you loosten the hold down bolt a little, then see if you can turn the entire distribuor very slowly just a little bit. If it turns a little, then you can hook up your timing light paying attention to the cautions and warnings in the instructions for the timing light or the auto manual being used to set the timing. You start the engine, and slowly turn the entire distributor left or right until the desired timing is reached. Turn off the engine, then tighten the distributor back down. That's pretty much it in a nutshell!
