I have a 90 lx 5.0 5spd that when the car has been driven for awile and stoped it will start then die, start then die. on the 3-4th try it will fire right up. I have serched my arse off and can't seem to find a reason. parts I have replaced are as follows.

New ford dist. still did it
New MSD dist. still did it
New ignition switch. still did it
New motorcraft start relay. still did it.

What am I missing? Any help would be appreciated.:mad:

it still could be your pick up in the dizzy, but it is a new ford one right? What about the TFI ( mounted to the dizzy) did you replace that or just re use the old one?

I bought a new Ford complete unit and it still did it. So I returned it and bought a brand new MSD complete unit. That's whats in the car now and it still does it. I replaced the stock coil with a MSD one at the same time.
