Try the gas pump in the gas tank


Check and see if that model has a fuel cutoff switch It'll b a red button either in the trunk or possibly under the dash on passenger side

Can you hear the fuel pump activate when you turn the key? If not, my bet is you burned it out.

It may take u and another person.. one to turn the key and one to listen for the pump humming
