m20 no start...

Doing errands today, got into my car after it had been off for about 25 minutes, didn't start. Cranks, but doesn't catch at all, like it has zero fuel, or zero spark. Messed around with it for an hour, but unfortunately had taken my tools out the day before to work on something else and didn't put them back.

Verified fuel pumps are pumping (and now I reek like gas), checked the easy stuff like fuses. Had a socket set, but nothing that fit the damn spark plugs, so couldn't tell if fuel was actually GETTING to them. Didn't have any wire so couldn't jump the engine, and couldn't verify spark. (nobody was around that offered to help turn the key, blame Canada)

Anyways, I'm soo freakin tired right now I can't think straight, so any ideas on things to tackle in the morning, *considering that* it just 'all of a sudden' won't start, would be appreciated (keep in mind its a m20b25). There was nothing that led up to this at all..which makes me thing maybe a short, something fried, etc.

Other than that, I guess I'll make sure the plugs are getting wet and verify spark first and go from there.

damn. $65 flatbed fee, and no car to hit the beach tommorow...

but it was in the garage.

Check the coil wire... I had a loose coil wire and it wouldn't fire. So same symptoms... When I parked it, it was running. Now it was not. I started checking around and found good fuel pressure but no ignition. NO SPARK. I checked the voltage at the coil and it was around 7 volts or something. Battery voltage was 12.6

The 12v positive lead at the coil was slightly loose, I tightened it and it fired right up. I hope it is that easy for you.
