Thank you for the responses:
Tester - No check engine light. There are no OBD-II codes.
Rascal - I appreciate the experience. My kid got this car for free from a friend who said it ran with no problems. Just needed to get rid of it. I’m thinking there was more to it than just needing to get rid of it. Ha!!
the_same_mountainbik - Yep, all those things could be it for sure. I have a compression tester and will use that to check compression. My son says he checked fuel pressure and it checked out. I’m not sure how reliable that is. It might need a thorough going over as you say. I also have a timing light that I was going to use to check the spark.
I have read about multiple items, fuel module, crankshaft sensor, and other stuff that feeds the computer. With no codes and no access to much, it is hard to say. The vacuum lines coming out from the manifold look in good shape, but they go behind the engine and disappear. So it is hard to say if they are good or not. I was going to take the line off the manifold and put a suction on it to see if it would hold but I can’t get that line off. I feel like I can work on it but I really don’t have the knowledge to troubleshoot so many things. I can hit a few but the others I don’t know much about.
