New Distributor.... Cold starts ok... won't start after warmup

1219 Views 6 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  mrmoose
I just installed a new distributor, new spark plugs, and new ignition wires. With a new distributor install, i'll have to adjust timing....

When I start the car (cold start), it starts up ok. After it has warmed up, I turn off the ignition and it wont start anymore. After it cools down, it can start again.

Please help.

1995 Nissan 200SX GA16DE.

It turns out that I just purchased a bad distributor. I reinstalled the old one and my car starts again........ (I only purchased a new distributor because my old one is leaking oil. The gasket around it melted somehow, and the plastic piece between the rotor and the distributor broke into pieces.)

... I'll just try again next time...
