Are you getting fuel? Is the fuel pump working? If so perform a compression test. If all cylinders are low you've jumped timing. HTH. -Jim

how much pressure should I see when I do the test? someone told me 40 pounds of pressure is what it takes to start the car. The car ran fine I never really drove it in about two years. It ran out of gas and I let the car sit with none in it for a long time.
