basically the same thing happened to me, just replace the Dizzy cap, or at least take it off see how the connections are.

its really called the main relay to find it get under your dash on the drivers side its above the hood release its a grey or black plastic box with one 10 mm bolt and a plug with wires. but i would check everything first cause the main relay will run you about $85.

When your turn your key on, do you hear the fuel pump prime for two seconds?
