Try spraying some quick start in the throttle body to see if it'll start for a bit. If it does, check fuel pressure. If pressure is ok, you may have to drain old fuel, depending how much fuel is in the tank, if it's low, just mix in some new fuel with 91% octane, if more tba. 1/4 tankfull, drain it

Most likely the fuel system is all crudded up, you may have to drop the tank and clean it and replace the fuel pump, fuel filters, pump relay, clean the fuel lines and the injectors, if the injectors are too bad they will have to be replaced. I assume that you have already changed the oil and filter. After you get it running I suggest that you change out all of the fluids, sitting is one of the hardest things that can happen to any model vehicle.

Suggest you pull the Engine oil dipstick and check the quality of the Oil. Smell it...feel it between your fingers....does it smell like GAS? Do not start the Engine. Change the oil and filter first.
