Spray some starting fluid down the throttle body. It should run a few seconds on that. If not and you know you have spark, do a compression test. If all cylinders test low or zero it's jumped timing. If it will run on the starting fluid see that you have a trigger signal for the fuel injectors. Test that with a noid light. HTH. -Jim
