Question about Cars & Trucks
Although there are three requirements for a car to start; air fuel and fire. air is usually a given. We therefore check for fuel and spark.
fuel: You can spray some starting fuel into the a air/cleaner throttle body, if it starts momentary, then you probably have a fuel problem. if it do not start, then you probably have a problem with ignition/spark.

More than likely it's the distributor. They have a tendency to build up corrosion and rust and have personally went through the same situation three weeks ago on a suburban. Check to see if you are getting spark from the distributor first. Have the ecm in the distributor checked at Oriellys for free. It's under the rotor and has two 8mm head bolts with wires plugged in at each end.

You will not be able to hear the fuel pump on that model. First you have to determine if you get fuel and have spark. If it is a fuel problem, replace the DME relay first. Very common. They act up and fail without warning. Part is cheap and located in the fuse box. Next would be the fuel pump.
If it is spark related it may be the Flywheel Reference Sensors. There are two and the cost about $100 each.

Sounds like a vacuam leak, best thing to use is cold start spray, by spraying the vacuam lines with this you will notice a change in the idle wherever the leak is at.

i just had the same problem on a 1997 4.0 . crank sensor is most likely bad you can spray starting fluid in the intake tube and car will start meaning you have spark but injectors will have no power I.E. crank sensor is bad 38.00 dollars at local parts store dealer told me 170.00 dollars make sure you push it all the way in when you install it i just posted a fix for this on this site today . after you start the car if it gives a misfire code and check engine light comes on loosen the crank sensor bolt and push it in again then tighten the bolt the cardboard on the sensor for the air gap wares off a little bit enabling you to push the sensor in a little bit more misfire should be gone there is only a few thousands of an inch adjustment for the air gap and it makes a difference. hope this helps
