Do you hear the fuel pump when you turn key to run-if so do a fuel pressure test-if not start with the fuel pump fuse and relay-sounds like the fuel pump

What you need to do now -is check for injection pulses-listen to the injector/s while cranking engine over -do you hear it clicking, also you can use a noiid lite for this test.

Disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark?
