Im not sure about this. but check the distributor wires.Meaning take off the cap, and rotor and the moisture cover. There should be three wires, I know one is for the r.p.m gauge. Take them off individually and check for corrosion from the moisture. It needs to be bare metal for good electric conducting. Just wipe them off, and make sure the fittings are firmly snug when snapped back into place.
