Is it cranking over and will not start if so do below

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine at least 3/16 away from ground -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, Do you hear the fuel pump come On when you turn key on? If not check fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay if so, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it.

So you made sure your battery cables are clean and tight?So does your starter not turn your engine over?Is there any noise at all when trying to start it?Do you have a multimeter?

So does the engine turn over or not?Do you mean it has spark?Do you have any trouble codes in the computer?What do you mean the catalytic blows?
