Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here. In order for the engine to start and run you need good spark to the spark plugs, injector pulse at the injectors and proper fuel pressure (32 to 45 PSI) . If you can check each one of these things when it will not start and post back with which one you are lacking I will see if I can help you determine the cause.
