SnafuPossum probable wing man
to check alternator, put a voltmeter to the battery while the car is running, it should be at ~13.5-14v at idle, then ~14v at about 2k rpm. but you would know if the alternator was acting up because the coil packs hate anything under 13volts going to them. Have you tried giggling different parts of the harness then seeing if it will start? something is obviously intermitting and I am guessing it is a connector or wire somewhere bad. Also have you tried messing with the key to see if the ignition tumbler is the problem, these cars are getting pretty old now and sometimes it can take a magical touch when turning the key to get it to turn over.
