Does the everything else you've checked include the starter?


First thing first... determine if the problem is fuel, electrical or timing. How you do that is check if fuel pump kicking on and Sparks are coming to car. If your not then Sparks could be a sensor (Crank/cam) fuel could be a safety switch or pump or regulator. If not check timing jump. Spray ether into intake and try and start it


I'm guessing he got it fixed about 2 1/2 years ago

Yeah your right LOL. But it's good to answer the questions for others that have similar issues


That's true. And I can't say I've never responded to an ancient thread without checking the date first.
