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. Roy

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