    you need fuel pressure, spark and compression to make it run. one of them is lacking at this time.
    a shop can give you a diag and determine the failure. my guess is a possible timing belt slipping out of time or bad distributor assembly.

    Thanks for the idea but it turned out to be bad fuel pump. Replaced fuel pump, filter and strainer.
