Just bought an 84 Pontiac Fiero Saturday, Insured it Wednesday, took it out for a drive, 5 miles MAX, and died.

Only has 49,000 miles.

Started to accelerate, heard a pop from the engine and lost all RPM's.

The engine turns over, but wont start.

You can smell gas. New gas was put into the car.

Replaced the ignition coil pack today, but still wont start.

Any ideas?
Thanks

We checked the rotor, and it spins. Replaced both the DIST cap and the Rotor, and still doesn't work.

The spark plug isn't getting a spark.
