Hi Jpenn234.
When was the last time you changed the spark plugs, wires and air filter (Tuned it up)? Check to see if you have spark. If you don't have spark its possible that your Crankshaft Position Sensor, and/or your Ignition Control Module is bad. The parts store can check your Module for free. Hope this helps.

First thing you need to do is fill it up with about 10 gallons of gas and then locate the fuel reset button. This is going to be a button that you will have to find the location of in your manual. This is a safety feature for the car when it runs out of fuel. It will keep the gas from getting to the engine until it is pushed and reset.

when I bought my LSS I was told this was normal but now that we're in summer it hasn't made much noise. That said; if it's excessive it could be loose mounting of the air pump(rattle) or pump bearing(squealing).

To offer a wild guess: is your engine oil the right type for this car & the weather its in? These use 10w40 unless in colder weather alot. As an engine wears it is necessary to pick an oil suitable to an older engine. There is a few high mileage oils on the market. Rumour has it Mobil 1 is the best but expensive. Synthetic might be necessary. Feel free to experiment. Best of luck!

Sounds like the engine has been flooded with gas due to excessive cranking which drained past the cold piston rings into oil crankcase. You have fuel & air but you do not have spark. 3 things come to mind: spark plugs, spark plug wires and ignition coils. Coils are on top with spark plug wires coming off them. Best of luck.
