Your battery might be completely drained does it even try and roll over

battery is good even tryed jumping it its got fuel in the rail when i start it and firer in the plugs

Put some pressure on your map sensor and see if it crank up

Next thing to do, is a compression test to see if timing chain might've jumped off

My truck coil pack wiring went to crap try wiggling those wires and start it up and see if the wiring is bad
