Hello and thank you for using Just Answer

 

a common cause for crank no start is the fuel pump

 

check to see if there is pressure at the fuel rail .. there is a capped valve where you can check for fuel.

 

if you have fuel and when you crank it bucks the starter the distributor cap/rotor are the most likely cause.

 

let me know what you find and if you need more help

where is the fuel rail
Expert:  Paul M ASE Master replied 6 years ago.

the fuel lines go into the intake there should be a cab that is similar to a tire valve cap but larger (on top of engine)

 

unscrew the cab and push in the pin with a paper clip (it should spray fuel out/make sure you cover with a rag so fuel does not spray on you)

cant seem to find it
Expert:  Paul M ASE Master replied 6 years ago.

check for a metal line near the distributor behind the intake... should be a cab and valve on the metal fuel line

how much should a fuel pump cost?
Expert:  Paul M ASE Master replied 6 years ago.

the labor to change the fuel pump is 2.6 on a 2 door with tank shield

 

so labor would be 260 dollars

 

and the part from napa is 359

so total 620 plus tax the entire job should run you around 650

 

let me know if you need more help
