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.

If the spark plugs are wet and you are sure you have good spark then I would start first with checking the fuel pressure . If the fuel pressure checks okay then the next steps would be to run a compression test. Check these two things for me and post back with the results and we can work from there.
