Verify if your getting gas, could be something as simple as a fuel filter. There may be a stored code. If possible do a scan. Check the throttle body, butterfly may have excessive carbon build up. Make sure you have good air flow. Perhaps a dirty filter there. Check for spark again. Fouled plugs or one bad coil can cause all sorts of issues. Good Luck!
