2 things needed to start a car. spark & fuel. since its not getting spark...its gonna be alot more labor intensive than it would if it was a fuel problem. keep in mind...each wire that goes to the distributor cap has to correspond with a certain spark plug. theres a diagram on the owners manual & should be under the hood. gooooooood chance u could also have a bad spark plug & or spark plug wire.
