Fuel Bowl Heating Element

Could be a shorting fuel bowl heating element. Had similar symptoms back in the winter and it ended up being that. If it shorts, the engine will crank, but not start, and the WTS light won't turn on at all. The #22 fuse will blow in the power distributor box if it shorts. Just my $.02.
