Now we start with the basics check for spark if thats good then get a gauge and see what the fuel pressure is. If thats god we need to check with a noid light for injector pluse. So has the car been sitting for a while?Does it even try to stary or just crank?Also what engine do you have?

Alright you need to check spark fuel pressure all that. You have bad gas from sitting also. Get back back to me on the spark and fuel pressure and we will go from there.

Sorry for the late reply, it has been more than I imagined with the car. Ok, so update: Had to replace the fuel tank, fuel pump, and pulsator. The tank was rotted bad and the fuel pump and sch were shot. Thankfully it never blew any of that through the injectors so they were fine. Replace all the fluids, spark plugs and wires. Also replaced the distributor cap and rotor. Car fired up and ran for about 50 miles. I now know the IAC valve was sticking and I cleaned it and it seemed to work better. However, now there is a really bad oil leak. I initially though it was from the oil pan gasket (which I forgot to replace), but once I removed the starter, I noticed the oil was leaking from somewhere above the transmission housing and running down onto the starter and ground. What can this possibly be? There is no oil on the flywheel, just seems to be running from something on top. Please help and thanks in advance.

Glad to hear you got running sorry to hear it was a big mess fixing it. You could have a valve cover gasket leaking if you cant pin point the leak go to the auto parts store and get some oil leak dye. Clean up all the oil put the oil leak dye in the engine oil then wait for the oil to start leaking then take a dye light and track the leak to its source. Let me know what you find.
