1997 Imprezza GX

Default Engine Wont Start


I have a automatic 1997 Imprezza sedan which has always run perfectly until 2 weeks ago when the engine would not start. The engine turned over ok but would not fire. The road service mechanic tested it for spark and discovered there was none. He then put the lead back on and the car started ok. He informed me that it was not the lead as or would have fired on the other cylinders. One week later, the day after I had it serviced, the same problem happened. I left the car overnight and it started 1st time in the morning. Both times the engine was cold. As the problem is intermittant, it makes its difficult for the mechanic to identify the problem, has anyone had an intermittant problem like this?

Any help would be much appreciated
