NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH Neutral safety switch is located on side of transmission case. It is nonadjustable. Use Socket (T74P- 77247-A) when replacing neutral safety switch or switch will be damaged.
More info please, does engine crank? Whats missing spark? Gas? compression?
Start with the basics, and work your way up, Last tune up was? Wires plugs ALL filters? If all that is ok, check for a stuck EGR, then test fuel pump pressure, If it won't restart, determine what's missing, the engine needs three things to run, Spark at all plugs, gas to all cylinders, and compression in all cylinders, tho an engine may run lacking one in one cylinder, it won't run very well!

PARK/NEUTRAL POSITION (PNP) SWITCH With ignition switch in OFF position, set DVOM to 200-ohm scale. Locate PNP switch (on transmission) and CPP switch (on clutch pedal linkage). Disconnect harness at switch. Measure resistance across PNP terminals with transmission in Neutral and across CPP terminals with clutch pedal fully depressed. If any resistance is greater than 5 ohms, switch is open. Replace switch as necessary. Faults in switches or switch circuits should set a service code. See QUICK TEST in TESTS W/CODES - EEC-IV article. If no service code has been set, see CIRCUIT TEST TA in TESTS W/CODES - EEC-IV article for additional switch testing and specifications.
