Have you checked for spark and fuel? Turn the ignition on but don't try to start it. You should hear the fuel pump come on for about 3 seconds. If not, get a hammer and hit the bottom center of the gas tank a few times. Don't beat the tar out of it. Just a few good whacks. If it starts the fuel pump is bad and needs replacement. If not, tap the fuel pump relay, located in the underhood fuse box, with the handle end of a screwdriver. If it starts the relay is bad and needs to be replaced. HTH. -Jim
