DId you check the injection fuse? Do you have a trigger signal to the injectors, a noid light works really good for this.

Thanks for response. Parked it 8 yrs ago when my husband passed. Want to get back on road to either sell or drive if reliable and safe. My mechanic friend (who's very good) is scratching his head why it starts with fluid. Thinks maybe crank sensor, timing sensor, harmonic balancer-he's going to work on in the morning and asked me to do some research. I'll pass along your suggestion and see what happens! Thanks again! You rock!!! Rebecca
