my 1990 ford probe lx won't start

well i don't know anything about cars and i bought my probe in august and everything was ok with it. About 2 months ago it started to slow down it wouldn't pick up speed fast. It gradually got down to not starting at all and my uncle who is good with cars still hasn't found out what is wrong with it. I dunno what im even asking, i'm just curious what COULD be wrong with it.

Re: my 1990 ford probe lx won't start

It could be any number of things. Of course not being there I can not properly diagnose the issue. But knowing the following will help a little bit.

1. Have you checked or has your uncle checked to see if there are any codes being thrown?

2. Are you getting any fuelpump whine when it click it over?
3. Do you have any electrical at all?
4. Have you had a look at the fuel filter. Check to see if it is clogged or if the line is clogged. You can replace the filter cheap and quick.
5. Check the Fuelpump relay. This can be causing your no start issues.
