Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I’m Ron and I’ll be helping you
today.
Before we get started though, Please understand that I don't know
your skill level or tools you have to assist us. Also understand that
I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does NOT replace a
repair shop.
My goal is to make you happy and get a great rating in return for
my time. Sometimes I have to give you bad news that I know you
didn’t want to hear, so please don’t shoot the messenger.

The most common thing to go wrong is the ignition module and pick up coil inside the distributor. The easiest repair is a new distributor this way you get both parts. Check for spark at the plugs with a spark tester first to confirm there is no spark. If you have spark, then check your fuel pressure with a gauge.

Thanks, Ron
