P1684 does not indicate a problem; it's only a status, which indicates that the PCM memory has been cleared within the last 50 ignition cycles.

Check the battery for full power and good connections (no corrosion), coil/plugs for spark. The 2001 has a Schreoder vlave at the end of the fuel rail to check for fuel pressure.

So, starter cranks, but engine doesn't catch?
No other error codes?
How long has gas been in the car? Does car get driven much?
How many miles on the car?
When were plugs and wires last changed?
