    You have crank so battery/charging systems is probably fine. I had a
    1990 GT so this may not apply to your year, but check your cap and
    rotor if you have them (some ignition systems don't), take them out
    and look for wetness, etc. Otherwise I would check the ignition
    module or ignition coil & related wiring for no spark.

    When was the last time you changed the timing belt? Wouldn't hurt to pull
    back the belt cover and make sure the belt is turning when you are cranking
    it. My 1990 Escort 1.9L had to be changed every 110,000 kms consistently,
    otherwise you were just asking for trouble if the belt broke.

    Good luck,
    Sharky
