I HAD THIS PROBLEM ON AND OFF FOR A LONG TIME ON MY 1985 AND CHANGED THE DISTRIBUTOR,& COIL TWICE. CLEANED ALL CONNECTORS ON ECM ETC. I THINK I SOLVED IT BECAUSE I HAVEN'T HAD THIS PROBLEM THIS PAST YEAR. I TRACED IT TO THE COIL,IGNITION ELECTRIC PLUG UNDER THE DASH ON THE STEERING COLUMN. THE 14DB J2 CIRCUIT WAS MAKING AN INTERMEDIATE CONNECTION CAUSING THE NO START. I FORCED A PIECE OF WOOD IN THE WIRE CONNECTION PLUG TO TIGHTEN THE CONNECTION AND SO FAR HAD NO PROBLEM STARTING. THIS REPAIR WAS A WINNER AND SPENT MANY HOURS FINDING IT. THIS PLUG IS PROBIBLY A CHRYSLER FAULTY PART. GOOD LUCK AND HOPE THIS IS YOUR PROBLEM. P.S. I LOVE MY CAR 244000 SO FAR.
