Re: my 87 aries k wont start it acts like is going to but...
You don't mention if it has spark. You might want to check that.The hall effect switch in the distributor is a common failure item. How's the wiring and voltage to to coil. Spark control is in the combustion computer on the driver inner fender well.It is also a common failure item. Check all wiring too.

send one bottle of fuel injector cleaner, a pint of kerosine, and 2/3 of a bottle of seafoam in the gas tank. It sounds that something in the fuel system is dirty, or is clogged up. just run that through the system, and see if that makes it better. I have done that before to my Aries, and it made it live again. also, before you change the oil, add the rest of the seafoam into your oil. it really cleans the sludge up in the engine.
My 99 v8 gas ran fine before it went for a barge ride to alaska. weeks later it acted like timing was off, kick back when cranking etc. Corrosion had build up in cap and rotor from the salt air. First cleaned contacts and was much better, ordered and replaced cap and rotor, problem solved.
Remove the distributor cap, so that the rotor is visible. Have an assistant turn the ignition to crank the engine over. If the rotor does not turn when the engine is cranking, then you need a timing belt or chain.
Only three possiblities. no gas, no spark, or the timing of the 2. So first follow the full lines and disconnect and turn on the ignition. That will start the full pump. you should see gas flow. Next remove a plug wire and dont hold it but place it near a plug or anything metal on the engine. You should see a spark when cranking the car. Finally its the timming of the two. remove spark plug from number 1 cylinder, with a wrench turn the crank shaft around untill the cylinder comes to top dead center. Look through the spark plug hole you should see the piston top. Now take off the distrbuter cap and look to see which terminal the rotor is touching. follow the wire and make sure it is the same wire that goes to the number 1 cylinder. Of course if the distributor rotor isnt rotating then of course your timing belt is broke. Good Luck.
when you changed the water pump you need to make sure you change the timing belt also, did you do this. check that your timming is correct.
the other problem is different,
I would check to see if you are getting fuel at the correct psi, then how do you know you are getting spark, did you pull the plug and see the fire when you got it near a ground. also are the plug still good. you could have damaged your plugs. Is the distributor cap with rotor, and wires new? are you getting air. have you checked the timing? This is where I would start.
