an 88 run by a coil pack, didn't know they started using coil packs that far back, then again I've only been investing time into learning about cars recently, being as young as I am, thanks for the insight. Anyways have you checked the starter? What about battery/alternator. While those are unlikely to be temperature related, ya never know. Start with the easy stuff ya know?
