Hi did you check your plug wires to make sure they're in the right firing order that they should be? Make sure the plug wires are on really tight and also check your battery cables to make sure there on tight and clean.

I changed the wires one by one. I had someone tell me that my fuel pump isn't kicking on.

When you turn the key on if you have the radio off you can hear the fuel pump kick on. Check your fuse s it could be a fuse thats blown out?
