See if it is not firing or not getting fuel. Take the air tube cover off and spay some starting fluid in it and see if it runs for a second.

Too see if you have fuel. 1) After sitting long enough for fuel pressure to drop. Remove the gas cap and put your ear close to the fuel filler tube with key on. You should be able to hear the fuel pump for a few seconds. 2) Open the power junction box under the hood and listen for "clicking" at fuel pump relays. Have someone engage the key to the start position, Check all Fuses there & under dash and Computer & check relays if possible. And 3) put a fuel pressure gauge on the fuel line (schrader valve) and check for pressure. If fuel pump is working 4) Install a noid light in one of the injector plug ins and see if it flashes when cranking.
