Hi Im David. Sorry you are having issues...lets try and figure it out. First off can you hear the fuel pump running when the key is turned to the "on" position. you should be able to hear it from the drivers seat if you listen closely ...it should be a faint humming for a few seconds. it would be better to have someone listen at the fuel door to see if they can hear it.

I will mention that while there are many possible causes for your no-start, we can relatively quickly narrow it down with a few simple tests if you are comfortable trying. I will also mention that there is a very high likelihood that there is a problem with your distributor, as this is an extremely common problem on these engines. you can tell if this is the case by removing the cap and rotor button off of the top of the distributor (it is located in the front of the engine in the center) and checking for obvious metal shavings in the casing of the distributor; this is an indication of a bad distributor. Let me know if I can do anything else for you and good luck!
