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 good spark, injector pulse , proper fuel pressure (32 to 45 PSI) and good compression. The first thing you need to do to determine why its not starting is to check and see if you are getting spark from the coil while cranking the engine over , if the spark checks okay then check and see if you are getting injector pulse to the injectors. If you have spark and injector pulse then the next steps would be to check the fuel pressure. Check these things and post back with the results and we can work from there.
