The ignition system on these cars is a very common problem causing no starts. The fuel pumps are the next most common problem causing the no start. My suggestion is to have a qualified technician check the ignition and fuel system for the failure. The fuel pump and filter should be replaced as a set if they are the failure. The ignition module and coils should be changed as a set if they are the failure.
