If you keep it in good repair, it's probably just flooded. Crank with
accelerator full down until cleared. If you haven't done any main other
than oil change, it could be a number of items including timing chain.
If it sounds like it's turning over very freely and without all the
usual noises, check the cam belt.
If it's not even doing that then it sounds like the starter's not
engaging - try giving it a whack with the handle of a screwdriver.

Have someone crank the car over while you watch the front pulley on the
crankshaft and open the oil cap and (if it's possible, I know you can on a
1980 5k, but not on a 1987 5kt) look at the camshafts. If the crank turns
and the cam shafts don't, you probably have a broken timing belt. If the
crank doesn't turn, you may have a broken starter, or a missing tooth on the
