Hello, you need a gage to check fuel pressure. Have a helper crank it, while you check for spark at the plugs. If you have plenty of spark, you might try some starter fluid in the intake, see if the vehicle will try to start. There could be some safety issues using a flammable spray. The responsibility is yours.
