Process of elimination. Assuming you meant it cranks good but doesn't start. Spray some quick start in throttle body and see if it runs for a bit. If it does, it's fuel related. Check fuel pressure at fuel rail. If pressure is good, check crankshaft sensor If still no start, check spark at the plugs. If apark, is good, do a compression test.
