Not likely. I would start with the DME relay under the driver's seat. There is a particular line in the circuit which *always* fractures and the car won't start.

Sometimes pulling it out and putting it back in works. Also check your distributor cap; make sure it's on firmly. Check your coil wire. Then grab a spare spark plug, pull a wire out, and hook it up. Have an assistant crank the engine while watching the plug for spark. If you have spark, then it's a fuel problem; possibly a bad fuel pump, fuel pump relay, or DME relay (or DME unit).

Good luck.
