    Do you mean it has gas in the fuel tank or the engine is getting gas through the injectors? If the engine is getting fuel then chances are there is no spark. The first place to begin looking if there is no spark is the distributor.

    I will assume you have already fixed your issue due to the date but other people may read this and find it useful. Try replacing the fuel pump relay first. On my 1999 deville all my relays seemed to fail around 215,000km. If it works it will only cost you less than $20. If it does not work at least it only cost you less than $20.
