Ok, step 1 is finding out what we are missing......For the vehicle to run it needs spark, fuel pressure, injector pulse, and compression.........Compression wouldnt be intermittent so no need to check that.....If fuel pressure is low pump will need to be replaced. The distributor assembly is somewhat common to cause no spark. Once you find out which one your missing you can reply back at any time if you have more questions, thanks.
