Won't turn over? You mean won't start? BIG difference. Not turning over means your starter can't crank the engine over. Make sure you clarify correctly! Which is it?

like i said before it sounds like you have a few issues, so far we've discoverd your CTS needs replaced (or was it just the plug?) and your maf pigtail needs replaced..

do you know anyone who could solder some stuff for ya?

when the cars "not starting" can you hold the pedal to the floor an it will start?

All signs point to coolant temp sensor, ignitor coil, or main relay. Main relay wouldn't be as likely I don't think, since the car has power to everything? I've never had to deal with this specific problem since I've never owned an OBD1 SR powered car.

Most likely scenario is the CTS, as others have suggested. If by chance (rare) it doesn't solve your issue, replace the coil.

just go to the junk yard. it would just be easier that way. go and clip the pigtail for the maf, and grab the two sensors that were mentioned before on the side of the intake manifold.
splice and soldier the wires for the maf CORRECTLY... and blam. you should be golden.

P.S. Greg from G Spec is a good guy if you should want to or need to do business with him.
