turn the key don't start it ( KOEO) listen for the fuel pump to prime the system , shut it off , do it again , and then see if it starts try an octane booster , don't run it dry , it's not good

check for proper spark and fuel pressure and if the injectors are firing correctly

If the engine runs briefly when using starting fluid - but then dies - you could have a clogged fuel filter.
