Question about Cars & Trucks
Have you tried to start it?
It wouldn't hurt to give it a SMALL prime. Remove the air filter and put a thimble or 2 (NO MORE) into the carb ant then try to start it. Sometimes they just need a bit of encouragement.
After sitting for 2 years the gas in the carb, fuel fump, and tank may have gelled, so there is a possibility that you will have some cleaning and flushing to do.
Work patiently, and stay safe.

Hey there boatright33,
A few things things immediately come to mind.
There may be a problem with the engine controller. You could check the ODBII onboard diagnostics. Auto part stores will usually do this for you at no cost.
When you pulled the ones that were/went bad, how did the filters look? Could there be particulate matter still in the tank causing them to fail.
I always put this one off until last. Check the injectors. Are they gummed up?
Let me know what you find out

What you need to do is check you fuel pressure. Go to a local auto parts store and buy a fuel injection pressure tester. The pressure fitting is on the top of the motor its a 3/8 ish sized metal line and has a screw on fitting like a tire valve does. This line comes up from the back of the motor to the right of the distributor and goes down into the intake. Make sure to have a rag handy to catch the fuel seepage. After you connect the pressure tester turn the key on and off three times and read the gage you should have atleast 58 pounds of pressure. If you have 56 pounds it won't run because the fuel injectors are a poppit valve style and need atleast 58 pounds of pressure to operate.

will be rubbish in the carb blocking either the primary or more likely idle jet.
Remove carb (2 x 13mm nuts, back one tricky) Undo 5 screws on top of carb and seperate after taking off throttle return spring.
carefully remove gasket (can be reused) Undo injection jet (Centre) idle screw and volume control screw (side of car) Blow through all hloes (body and removed jets) with carb cleaner. Also check that fuel supply valve in top of carb is not blocked. Refit all jets. For idle and volume control (idle the big one) screw in fully and then undo for 2 and a half turns (rough setting). Fill carb 2/3rds with new fuel. Refit top and put carb back. Should start and run. Adjust Idle so tickover at 1000, the turn volume screw for max rpm. Then turn down Idle to 850.......sorted.

Check starter relay fuse and fuel pump fuse inside under hood fuse box. Take out those 2 fuses (they are the same size) and bend the 4 tabs outward a little bit, then re-insert. This will help the fuse prongs make contact inside fuse box.
