See what's missing spark or fuel. To check spark, disconnect a spark plug wire insert a metal screwdriver into the boot and then hold the metal part of the screwdriver 1/2 in from a metal part of the block then crank the engine while you watch for spark you may have to have someone crank the engine for you. Next check for fuel, remove the plastic cap on the fuel rail then depress the schraeder valve while someone turns the switch on, fuel should spray out. I have a feeling your fuel pump is going bad but check first. I hope this helps you
