Are you sure the correct spark plug wires are going to each cylinder?

Yes all are correct

And when it try to start it makes a puff sound when it cuts off

I would double check the wires.

Ok i will check them over

All wires are correct

If you are getting a good spark and you are sure the lead wires are attached to the correct plugs, investigate your fuel filter installation. Maybe there is a blockage that is preventing fuel flow or your fuel pump has died.

Pump is good it comes on
