Hello and welcome! My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question. Have you checked the fuel pressure? Maybe you have a bad fuel pump. This is very common on this vehicle. Or the fuel pump may not even be getting powered up while cranking. HOwever, if the engine has spark, it should start and run on starting fluid. Hands down. If not, then the ignition or valve timing is off (out of time). My experience on these engines is this is caused by a bad distributor cap and rotor. It might just be as simple as that
