The car is having a hard time getting it started after the weather got colder. The engine would crank but wont start up. Changed the spark plugs and wires and Check all connections. The engines sounds like its trying to start but sounds like there is lack of fuel flowing. Is there anything else I can do or check to findout why this wont start?

You need to check fuel pressure and spark. Get can get a spark tester pretty cheap. It goes on the end of the spark plug wire and hooks to a ground.

When I tested the spark plugs I had spark but haven't check the fuel pressure yet. Is there anything else I should be checking as well?

Spark, fuel pressure, compression. And timing. That about it.
