Re: Im dead, im dead, im dead.
What year is it? I have a 91 (F.I.) that acted similarly. One day it just lurched a couple of times, then died. It would crank fine, but never even tried to start. I went over EVERYTHING at least half a dozen times. On the recommendation of fellow BBS folks here, I finally gave in and had my computer rebuilt by a company out of Florida called Auto & Truck Electronics, that specializes in that. Anyway, as soon as I got it back in, (and after about four months of trying other stuff) it started right up. The rebuild was $375. I'm not sure if this applies to any other model years, but it is a possibliity for sure, in any fuel injected models (It may even apply to all models with a computer control for emmissions, which affects the ignition system, which is where my problem was). So if you are getting fuel, and it cranks, check to where you are and where you aren't getting spark. In my case, I had no spark at the plugs, or even off of the distrubutor, but I was getting some measurable (but small) current from the coil. Just probably not enough to drive a spark. I thought it might be the coil and/or igniter, but there is very little that can happen there (although you might be able to get them tested - I couldn't find anyone here who could test them or give me test procedures)
