You may have a spark problem. Hook up a remote spark tester and locate it where you can watch it . Watch to see if there is a lack of spark when the engine dies. Also hook up a remote fuel pressure tester and see what your fuel pressure is when the engine dies. If you lose spare I would look at the module in the distributor as the problem. If it fuel, it could be a weak pump or a restricted fuel line. Also , find someone with a scanner and have him read the codes. It could be that simple.

Check for a shorted wire that goes to the throttle body injectors. They get caught under the air cleaner and short out.

The injectors must receive a signal from the ECM to fire. What is your fuel pressure. 60-65? Check the injectors wires to make sure they get current to fire. Possible blown ignition fuse. Red 10 amp fuse in fuse panel.

Check the fluid in the clutch master cylinder. It may be low. You may need to bled the system or replace the slave cylinder. If both of these are on, you may have a clutch problem.

You could have a bad engine coolant sensor giving the ECM a bad temp reading. It is located in the front part of the manifold.

Is the engine slow cranking, hard to start or cranks over but will not run? Slow cranking would be battery or starter problem and the cranking but not running could be a fuel problem or lack of power to the ignition system. When it does not start, spray a little starting fluid into the throttle body and try it. If it starts, bad fuel pump or relay. If a no start continues, pull a plug wire and check to see if it has spark.

Remove cooling fan, all belts, radiator shroud, pulleys, water pump and harmonic balancer. Probably will need to remove the alternator and power steering pump also. Drain the coolant. loosen the oil pan removing the front 2 bolts on both sides. Take all bolts from the timing chain cover. Carefully remove it from the engine. You should be looking at the old timing chain. Rotate the crank until the two dots, one on the cam gear and the other on the crank gear, are positioned together. Cam gear dot on the bottom, crank gear dot on the top. Take out the 3 cam gear bolts. Slide both gears towards the radiator keeping them lined up. Install in reverse order.
