the engine requires only 3 things to start and run.

- spark

- fuel

- compression

during the time the engine does not start, you need to determine which one of the three is missing.

you can check spark with a spark tester.

listen for thee fuel pump when you first turn the ignition on.

I woudn't worry about compression just yet.

let me know if you need more help.
