If you add a combustable gas and it starts and runs then your problem is fuel.

First make sure that your main relay is functioning properly (your fuel pump should recieve a signal to prime) if the circuit is fine, then replace the fuel pump

Okay well. Check your wiring.

With the key on the blk/yel wire should have battery voltage and the black wire should provide a ground.

If you are missing one of those you have a problem. If you have both power and ground and the pump is still not priming, the pump is faulty/defective.

Check your fuses and your relays if you have no battery voltage to the injectors.

It may also be the ignition switch, but that is uncommon.

The TDC, CYL, CRANK sensors are all internally inside the distributor.

How do you know the main relay is fine? Are you getting power out of the main relay to the injectors? Your main relay is what sends power to the injectors, make sure that the relay is fine and you are seeing power to and out of the relay.

Try having someone crank the engine over while you test the injector for voltage. If it has intermintant voltage it is a fuel pressure issue. If it has a return line try pinching it off or blocking it. If that works its a fuel pressure regulator.
