check the fuel pump
get someone to sit in the car and you go to the rear when they turn the ignition on you should be able to hear the pump from the fuel tank.
if not bang the tank and try again if nothing replace fuel pump.

did you get her going old son?

If you haven't try a test light between the ignition module and the coil terminals. It should flash when you crank it.

If it doesn't you probably have a bad connection there some where.

ps I'm no expert.
