The weather isn't cold its pretty warm but i am still having trouble starting the car when i turn the key it just isn't getting a spark. i am also going to have my feul injectors cleanded at a mechanic friend of mine donno knowif that would help.

Have you checked the distributor cap and rotor?

And about the gas...you realize that the gas tank is under the rear seat right? I would get that checked out. You could make enough of a spark to ignite the fumes just by closing the door, or something of the like.

have you checked your battery out? i know that seems too simple, but mine wasn't starting and it turned out that the battery just went dead...
