To eliminate a ton of guessing, and throwing good money in to un-needed parts, consider investing in an OBDII scanner. There are just so many many things it could be, and hate to see people buy stuff that is not the problem....electrical parts can not be returned ...even if never installed. Meantime, you need to determine whether it's fuel or spark. Buy a can of starting fluid.... and with a helper, spray right in to intake, it will go right through filter while one of you cranks it. If it starts and runs for about 5 - 10 seconds, than it's a fuel delivery problem. If it doesn't run then, it's electrical...meaning a long list of things
