First off, buy the Haynes repair manual. Is the car a V8? Remove the #1 spark plug and reattach the plug wire. Ground the spark plug tip on the engine anywhere that's metal like the block. Wedge it securely. Have someone crank the engine and look for spark at the tip. Or spend $15 at parts store for plug tester. You need fuel, air and spark for engine to run.
