I have found the problem with my car and it might be helpful for you to check it out the pickup coil in the distrubtor mine is falty and the car tryes to start but then fails after. The pick up coil is easy to check.
First disconnect the EST ( electroinic spark time) connection this is the black and tan wire just to the left of the blower moter as you look at it then disconnect the four pin connector at the distrubtor control modual not the two pin fron the coil, check for spark if you get one then the pick-up coil (AKA ignition coil) is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If you dont get a spark the using a DVOM(digital volt ohm meter) disconnect the two pin connector at the distrubtor and check both pin for voltage the should read battery voltage if they dont then you have a short in the two pin gray connector at the coil. You will need to fix this
