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 a properly charged battery, as good working starter , good spark to the spark plugs, injector pulse at the injectors and proper fuel pressure. If you can check each one of these things and post back with which your lacking then I will see if I can help you get this resolved.

is the noise coming from the starter

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don't know what kind of noise the starter makes. I don't think it getting any gas to the engine
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
To my understanding he check the spark to the plug connection to the wires connection to plug connection to the battery fuses etc
Expert:  john -aka eauto replied 1 year ago.

if the starter isn't cranking the motor over why would he be checking fuel and spark if the motor isn't turning over , i feel there is a miscommunication somewhere.. what happens when you turn the key ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Because I recently had a tune up because it was misfiring it started misfiring again had oil leaking to the spark plug wells. I had all ignition coil seal coils seals o rings valve cover gasket etc replace but prior to the replacement it wouldn't start. And after the replacement. That why he look at those & the connection. It was starting at first but it sat couple days then it wouldn't start before he replace all the items mention. The it making is like a wiin wiin like it want to turn over but it don't
