Hello Dave

I would first look at a fuel problem
Get some either and spray it down the air intake if it trys to start then look into fuel filters and fuel pressure

Reply to glenn's Post: Hi Glenn I have already checked the fuel and also tried spraying a little either that is why I checked for spark there is no sprak comming out of the coil

Next would be the cam sensor that tells the coil to fire
