You need to provide us with better information for us to be able to help you. Answer these questions and then I can give you some advise. Is your fuel pump operating? Do you have power and ground at the pump when you are trying to start the engine?

Mike, This is going to be much too involved of a process to take you step by step, so, if you want to do this, you should have a good repair manual and a test light or voltmeter. I suggest a Bentley Manual for this vehicle: http://bit.ly/Bentley_Repair_Manuals If you want to do this, and you get the manual, read up on diagnosing a no-start problem, then I can offer more help.
