If your title says 97 then your car is a 97. To answer your other question , don't take a chance jumping anything, you could fry your computer. Get hold of a scanner tool and use it to find your problem. Your computer will tell you the exact problem, which I am guesting is your crank shaft sensor. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.
Check the crank sensor... easiest way to test will be to remove a plug wire from the spark plug and place close to metal on the motor ... have some 1 turn the car over while you watch the end of the wire .... you will be looking for sparks to arc to the motor ... if nothing then you will need to replace the crank sensor. if this information helps please rate it ... if that is not the problem please let me know and we will figure it out together
