Greetings. If you have good spark and fuel from the injectors then the remaining items would be engine mechanical or clogged exhaust. A compression test would reveal engine mechanical like a broken or slipped timing chain and removing the oxygen sensor temporarily would help you rule out clogged exhaust.
