Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I’m Ron and I’ll be helping you today.
Before we get started though, Please understand that I don't know
your skill level or tools you have to assist us. Also understand that
I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does NOT replace a
repair shop.
My goal is to make you happy and get a great rating in return for
my time. Sometimes I have to give you bad news that I know you
didn’t want to hear, so please don’t shoot the messenger.

Check the fuel pressure with a gauge to be sure it's correct.

Check for spark at the plugs with a spark tester.

Check compression with a gauge for possible valve timing being off.

Thanks, Ron

Possibly, we'll find out if there is no spark. Do more testing. let me know your results.

thanks again, and please don't forget to rate me and keep this link in case you need me again later on.
