Hi-if ur motor is free moving and u replaced all thos parts u might want to drain the oil n then feel around in the drained oil for any kind of bits of metal.theres alot that can cause it not to start but if u check this way it'll tell u if any kind of internal parts broke. If everything looks good n there is no bad in the motor buy the repair manual for ur car n go through it and find the wireing diagrams n start checking any relays/fuses/ ect...hope this helps u find the problem.


Have you checked the fuel pressure?May be bad fuel pump.
