Sounds like your not getting fire! I would check to the distributor, the coil is inside the distributor. If you have acess to a good used distributor, then switch them out real quick. It's very easy and it might solve your problem. Just mark where the rotor inside the distributor is pointing, and when you drop the distributor in make sure to align the rotor button in the exact position. If it still doesn't fire then you'll know that's it's not the dist. I hope this helps!

Car wont run below half a tank

If it has a timing belt,that is your problem

The exhaust converter & all the oxygen
sensors will have to be replaced as they
fired from the heat of a timing or misfire

Check fuel pressure also after you resolve

Ran out of gas,put 4 gals in wont start tried starting fluied wont start

Sounds like the ignition system is not firing the spark plugs if starting fluid and gasoline doesn't solve the problem.

Verify by putting a spark tester on one of the spark plug boots and attaching the spark tester to the engine block or ground.

My son let his 2001 Chev Tahoe run out of gas. He put in about 2 gal gas , it would not start. I put in 5 more gal , still no start and the fuel guage does not move at all when key is turned on. thanks

There is a fuel shut off switch that needs to be reset (sorry don't know where it's located on that vehicle, you'll have to call the dealer).

89 Ford F150 shuts off when put in gear.

After sitting 2 years, there must have been some fuel in tank that has probably gone real bad (like shellac) and contaminated the fuel system, plugged up filter etc. Usually rust will form in tank, mixed with stale fuel, it will turn just like mud.
