Before we get started, I have to say, "Great Car!"

Okay, now that I said it, we can move on. lol Have you checked to see if you are getting spark and fuel to the engine? Also, if you want to try starting fluid, it would go into the throttle body, not the #1 cylender. If you try the starting fluid and it starts for a few seconds, then we'll know you are getting spark and fuel is the problem.

Regardless, here is the how to for checking fuel pressure and spark. I need you to check it so I know which way to direct you.
