A number of possibilities still remain. Even though you hear the fuel pump engage that could still be the problem. I think the first thing I would do is to eliminate electrical as the issue. To do that I would recommend a shot of starter fluid. If it starts then electrical is ok. Re-check the plug wire connections. Are they correctly fed to the plugs? If yours has a fuel filter, clean or replace that. Good luck. I love my '96, but it has had problems now and then over its 190,000 miles.
