Follow some type of troubleshooting procedure not just guessing. Start by Makeing sure you have a good fully charged battery, check battery voltage, it should be minimum 12.4. If battery is ok, spray some quick start in the throttle body to see if it'll start for a bit, if it does, it means it's not getting fuel past the injectors but at least it eliminates spark or timing issue. Check fuel filter,check fuel pressure. If fuel is ok, check crank shaft sensor. If still doesn't start with quick start, check spark at spark plugs. If spark is ok, do a compression test.


Check spar plug wires firing order to make sure you placed wires in the correct order.


If you vehicle will not crank...first check for good battery and good started. However, I'm am thinking your vehicle does crank...that is...when you turn the key the engine spins over. Right? that means it IS cranking...but I guess it will not actually start up. Irodri911 is right. Make sure battery is good. Make sure fuel is getting to the engine. Make sure you have spark. Make sure you have compression. Make sure the timing is NOT out of sync. Should check those thing in that order. Course if you get it running at step 3 you need not complete the other steps.
