Try starting fluid or gas in the throttle body under the air filter pour or spray in there to see if it starts. If it starts its a fuel issue if not it spark or injecters. Buy a cheap test light and check for spark on wires also check the enjecters for for pulse with. When you touch the test light to the injecter harness the light will flash as you turn the motor over.

Hey remember me I was wondering if you could help me again ok if I'm getting fuel to the injectors what would cause them not to spay fuel cause if I squirt gas in there like you said it will start but won't stay running could that be a bad regulator or crankshaft sensor it's the injectors something causing them not to work thank you and God bless Matt!
