Check engine light on? If so have codes read and post them back on here. That will give us clues as to what's going on with it.

The codes will give you clues where to start looking. Without them you are just guessing and will have to do trial and error. Crankshaft sensor might be a good guess. So it's turning over fine but won't start? If so have you checked the plug wires for spark? Or the fuel rail for proper fuel pressure? What psi was it? --- or is it just not turning over at all? If so This would not have anything to do with a crankshaft sensor.
