Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Justanswer. Thank you for your question and I will assist you with your concern.
In order for the engine to start and run you need good spark at the spark plugs, Injector pulse at the injectors, proper fuel pressure and good compression. If you can go back in and check each one of these things to determine what your lacking and post back with this I will help you determine the cause.
