Hi,

If the starter engages, we need to determine if there are spark and fuel to the engine. Here are three links to help. The first reviews a crank no start condition. The next two explain how to check fuel pressure and ignition spark.

Also, see if it will start for a couple of seconds with starting fluid. If it does and stalls, we know it's a fuel-related issue.

Let me know what exactly is happening. Also, let me know if you have other questions.

Take care and God Bless,
