Try and spray some starting fluid into the throttle body to see if it fires off. If it does, then there is a fuel issue to be figured out.

if no help..maybe the timming chain...compression problem...injector voltage...****was the check engine light on at any point any codes?? fuel should be squirting out not dripping....about 30-40 psi.
