When a car cranks but wont start there are 3 things you wanna check for : Fuel, spark and compression.

First of all check all your fuses. Then check fuel and spark first as they are the easiest.

its getting fuel.. how do i check if i have spark and compression
spark.

1. get a screwdriver and someone else.

2. take the spark plug wires off. not from the dizzy.

3. take spark plug wire from cyl. 1 and put screwdriver at the part that goes into the spark plug. make sure there is contact between screwdriver and the copper connector inside the tube.

4. find a suitable metal part in your engine bay. that will be your ground. making sure you're not touching any metal part, place the screwdriver a couple centimeters above the metal part.

5. ask your partner to crank the engine, and check for spark. repeat on the other wires as well.

in order for a compression test, you need a compression tester.

When you replace cap you should replace rotor.
