How much fuel is in the tank?

I'd skip the filter and aim straight to testing the fuel pressure.

On the 95'*, the VATS disables the starter. Prevents it from being turned over.

Ogea21, when you were fumbling with the trans connector, did you remove the airbox and hose assembly?

Oh no, I didn't mean that it was wrong for you to start it without the airbox assembly removed. I'm trying to think of what you might have bumped when you removed the airbox and hose that allowed the engine to start besides playing with the trans connector.
