I know! Lets throw parts at hoping for a fix!



Start with the basics.

Disconnect fuel hose from filter inlet, turn key. A small amount of fuel should spray out then stop. If no fuel check for power / ground at the pump. No power/ground, follow the harness up to each junction and recheck until you find the power /ground.

Got fuel? Check for spark. Pull an ignition wire and see if it sparks against metal during cranking. No spark? Check for power and ground to coil (see above)

Have fuel and spark? Check timing.

Have fuel, spark and timing? Now you can make an educated shotgun diagnosis and swap the MAF sensor (there is a diag procedure for it, but it is easy to swap and readily found at a wrecking yard for $15)
