Electronic Module or Coil.

My car will run fine when cold, but when she gets warm it will turn over but not start. After it cools off she will fire right up. I took the #1 plug wire and notice no fire.
I'm thinking its the electronic module or coil. I have a stock HEI ignition w/ Accel Super Coil.

Does it fire on the other cylinders? If so you can pretty much exclude your coil as it doesn't discriminate which cylinder to fire for. Modules will often start failing when they are hot. You can have them tested at many autoplaces. Have them test it 10-12 times to make sure it gets nice and hot.

Starter solenoids often have a hard time when they get hot too but if its still cranking like normal and just not starting then I would lean more towards module.

Good luck,

Dylan.

modules

if you can do it yourself I would shot gun a module in there and go from there. if nothing else at least then you will have a spare module, but sounds like the module is failing.

You can order an Ac-Delco module from most parts places. Factory part without the factory price. I dont see any reason why the stock module would have trouble with the Supercoil. I never had a problem with it and my MSD coil(s).
