Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are many things that can cause a no start condition. You may be missing fuel pressure due to a pump issue or a loss of power or ground to it. You may be missing spark due to a cam or crank sensor issue or a number of other causes such as wiring or cam timing. It could be a fuel quality issue or an exhaust restriction.

Have you checked for communication with the engine controller using a scan tool?

Does the fuel pump run?
