You need to find out if it is spark or fuel related, try spraying a little starter fluid in the intake and see if it will fire off even briefly, if it does then it's fuel, possible fuel pump or related componets, if it doesn't then it's spark, possible cam or crank sensor, cap, rotor, plug wires, coil etc. we're there any check engine lights on when it was running, a code scan might also be a good idea.

I changed the crank sensor and plugs and I do have fuel presser

Pressure not presser

Did it fire with the starter fluid?
