A lot of times get this the cooling system

So, it cranks but won't start. A little fuel in the throttle body will tell you if it's spark or fuel supply. if it starts and dies - it's fuel. Does the Distributor rotor turn while cranking? Fuel, Air and Heat are the three things it takes to make fire. Is enough fuel being delivered (pressure and delivery tests). Is the engine mechanically sound? (compression test). Is there spark at the plugs? Don't throw parts at it unless you want to rebuild a truck that doesn't run.
