    Finally a good update! It turned out to be the MAP sensor, I replaced it and it started right up. How oftem does this sensor go out?

    A defective MAP sensor will usually set code 22. I have not seen one cause a no start condition, but there is a first time for everything with these cars.

    Dumping the codes would have probably shown the code 22, but all of us, myself included, were off chasing other rabbits.

    Yea it happens but I'm glad I finally got it fixed just need to set the timing and replace some vacuum lines. At least I have a bunch of new parts on my car less things to worry about now. Is it rare for a MAP sensor to go out?
    And thanks for all the help, I really appreciate it.
