Check for spark, scan for codes and check fuel pressure.

You can get a code reader @ Walmart or auto zone there not very expensive. There is a 16 pin connector on the drivers side under the dash bord. @ This point we should be checking ecu codes. Auto zone might read them for free let me know how you make out
