try taking your altenater off and taking it to your nearest autoparts store and they can test it . the altenater is what keeps your battery charged i hope i have helped
prob a bad battery if it doesn't get enough charge from altenater to resupply cold cranking amps iniatal cranking will be hard so get your altenater and battery checked Sometimes it can be the oil. Some people don
battery may be dying and altenater may be going out
It could be a faulty battery, If you have bought a new one recently, and it still wont stay charged, its probably your altenator. good luck or it may be the altenater.
If you have put the distributor back in the proper position and its not out a tooth you might try to disconnect the battery for a few minutes (5-10 to be safe) to reset the computer. I really think you're out by a tooth which has changed the timing though...
The computer's power, or its ability to stay powered on and running, is maintained by the charge in the battery. The battery's electricity is used by the computer to keep running. If there is no charge in the battery, or the battery is removed, the computer will shut off and will not be able to be powered up.
battery and coil
First unhook the battery. Next, remove the distributor cap and unhook the wire that runs to the coil. Then loosen the distributor clamp (10mm nut) and pull the distributor out.
In a desktop computer, the battery stores the CMOS settings and keeps the real-time clock running. In a laptop computer, the main battery is used to power the computer when it is not plugged into a wall adapter.
Inbetween the battery and distributor.
