Well, your missing one of the important big three. Fuel, Air, Spark. If you don't know your way around under the hood, find someone to help you out. First, pull a plug wire and see if you have spark. Second, remove gas cap, put ear to the hole, have someone turn key to accessory position and see if you can hear the fuel pump humming. Or touch a screw driver blade to the bottom of the gas tank and put your ear on the plastic handle. Kind of works like a stethoscope. If no humming, you have a failed fuel pump. As for air, just make sure you don't have a mouse nest in your intake box. Post back with results..........
