Start with a compression test to verify timing.

Then see if you have spark.

Then see if you have fuel pressure.

Without these, it will not run.

Yes it has all of it the timing is all on mark compression is good fuel pressure is 80 pounds but somethings not telling the computer to fire the fuel to the cylinders.

That would be the crank sensor.

Make sure all your connectors are secured and all your grounds are hooked up, clean and tight

It needs a crank sensor for a signal to fire the injectors.

Here is the procedure.

Roy

Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Remove the power steering pump, if equipped. Refer to Power Steering Pump.
Remove the A/C compressor. Refer to Automatic Temperature Control Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning System.
Remove the rear A/C compressor mounting bracket bolts and the rear A/C compressor mounting bracket.
Remove the accessory mounting bracket by removing the bolts.
Disconnect the crankshaft position (CKP) sensor connector.
Remove the CKP sensor retaining bolt.
Gently rotate and remove the CKP sensor from the engine block.
