Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

There are quite a few things that can cause a no start condition and it will require some testing to determine exactly what is going on. You may be missing fuel, spark for a number of reasons, it could be a fuel quality issue, even the engine controller itself.

Are you hoping to do the required testing yourself?

The next step will be to check for fault codes then.
