Diagnosis Mike, diagnosis! If it's not starting it's probably because you don't have spark or fuel at the cylinders. Check for spark at the plugs, check fuel pressure and injector operation. Check crankshaft to camshaft timing as well.
Ok, another question on that subject: My 1994 Villager takes a while to start in warm weather. Starts fine in cold weather. Scratching my head over this one.
