If yo are getting spark fromt eh coil to the dist then you either have a rotor cap or dist cap that h as gone bad or a coilwire or all threee. I am not an instructoron how to fix a car an d if you can't get it to runi'd suggest you take it to a pro who can. From the the info i've given you you should have been able to figuresout what is wrong with the car doing a step by step follow through. Scanning for codes an dcheckecing fuel pressure shold be the very first things you do on fuel injected engines. You could have a crank sensor or dist problem with your vehicle. I canoffer no further comments

That sounds like nothing but a wild guess and no idea if the pump picks up during cranking.
