Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. The code 212 is set in most case due to either having the wrong ignition control module (ICM) or you have a failed distributor stator located inside of the distributor. The ICM on this vehicle should be black in color. If the ICM is gray, it is incorrect for this vehicle. Replace the ICM with a black module.
