Are you getting fuel and spark to check for fuel there is a service port on the fuel rail you can take the cap off and put a fuel pressure gauge on the port. To check for spark you can disconnect one of the wire from the distributor or coil pack, while some one is in the car and have them turn the engine over while you see if there is a spark.
