Use a spark detector attached to each plug to make sure each plug is firing. If they are, then the problem lies elsewhere. Check the fuel pressure at the rail with key on. Pressure readings can be obtained from the net.

Another thing to look for is if the theft light is blinking while starting. It could be the theft system activating.
