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 and proper fuel pressure. In order to determine what is keeping the engine from starting you need to start with checking each one of these things to see which one you are lacking. If you find you have good spark to the spark plug also make sure the spark plugs are not fuel fouled from setting. Normal fuel pressure should be right at 29 to 33 PSI. Post back with the result and what you lacking and we can work from there to determine the cause.
