Air, fuel, and spark at the right time. Has to be lack of one of these. If you can like a previous answer turn the key on and try to listen right when you turn it, for a pump noise. Go from there.

check to make sure you have pressure coming out of the fuel filter. It's located on the frame near the drivers side door.

Under the hood there is a portal for checking fuel pressure. It's similar to a tire valve, undo the cap and with the key on push the nipple in with a tool should gush gas out, hold it open for awhile to make sure you got good flow. Watch ur eyes though.
