Thank God for the internet! If you have this issue, replace the distributor cap and rotor first. Cost about $40. I read numerous recommendations and everyone was talking fuel pressure, spark, crank sensor, etc. I had tried to check the spark, but one of the wires broke at the plug so I started replacing the wires and since I was there I went ahead and replaced the plugs. I did have spark, but still did not help. I did try gas in the carburetor, but did not start. This led me to believe it was electrical. I found a thread that indicated that GM had an issue where the AC line condensation would drip on the cap and corrode it. I replaced the cap and rotor and it started right up. There are horrible stories of people spending $850 for a new fuel pump and they still would not start, Even if this doesn't fix yours, it's a very inexpensive starting point. It does take a fairly short T20 screwdriver to access the rear screw. If this doesn't work, you'll have to try all those other things referenced in the various threads. Fuel pressure, fuel pump, crank and cam sensor, fuses, ECM. Good Luck, as I was prepared to have it towed to a mechanic and take it in the shorts.
