Check the timing chain its probably not in the right dents or the ignition is not in the right place try loosing it a little bit until you can move it from one side to another and try to advance it.

sounds like a fuel prob. to me if it idles good. does it stall in gear and in park? if so then i would bet on fuel prob.

its true i did not pay atention on the part that says its starts, in this case you need to do this simple test get a vise grip with a piece of cloth and squeese the fuel return line right after the fuel regulator if the problem gets solved you have a bad fuel regulator if not its probably your fuel pump unless you have a dirty fuel filter
