My car won't start

Asked by Jun 05, 2019 at 01:54 PM about the 1988 Ford Festiva

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I got a 1988 ford festiva ran fine then one day was
sitting there car was running then just shut off, I
started it back up it ran for few then I shut it off.
When my boyfriend came out of work I started it up
again and tried to drive off didn't even make it out
the parking lot before it just died again and
wouldn't start up. Then next day I came back to it
and tried to start it up, it fired right up so I drove it
got bout 2 miles down the road and it died wouldn't
start again. It's getting gas and spark, I changed
spark plugs, wires, cap and rotor, also coil it didn't
help. Actually made engine sound like it was
dragging so I put old stuff back on sounded better
right off but still won't start. Driving me crazy and I
can't figure out what's going on with it, please any
information would help...
