my wagon would not start yesterday, i had to replace the coil ($15 at junkyard) however it only got me a few miles before not starting again. so im back to trouble shooting again today. looking foreward to hear what you come up with!

try haveing the crank position sensor replaced,bad coil as other poster said,but sounds like his cps may be bad also.

have you had the timing belt checked? its on the passenger side behind the plastic cover where the water pump sits.
