It sounds like it is going to start but just won't catch...Battery is fine and there

Borrow a fuel pressure gauge from your local auto parts store.

Easier, get a can of starting fluid. Spray some down the throttle body and start it. If it runs for a second then it's fuel related. If it doesn't change anything then it's not
