    Haynes sells decent European vehicle manuals online, and alldatadiy.com has online subscriptions that are inexpensive and worth the price. I suggest you use one of these services, and learn how to diagnose a no start problem instead of replacing parts without a justifiable reason.

    probably the distributor cap or rotor in the cap. start with these. check that spark plug cables are in good order while you do it
