    is the dash tach the speedo? my speedo cable snapped a few months ago and i didnt bother replacing it so could that be the issue?my car is an auto too and im not very familiar with electrics.

    Couldnt find the tach but i just tried pouring a little petrol down the carby and got it started but its coughing and splattering and when i take my foot off the accelerator it just stops.

Do you have an in dash tach? If so crank the motor over and see if it moves, if it doesn't then you may have a faulty crank sensor.

    no the speedo is not the tach, the tach would be your engine's rpm. as you rev motor it will go up. without moving car.

    fuel pump is out then. the fuel pump is located in the gas tank. you would want to check your fuses first to make sure one is not bad.
