Welcome to 2CarPros.

Have you checked for both spark and fuel to the engine? Try this. See if it starts for a couple seconds using starting fluid. If it does, then it is a fuel related issue. If it doesn't, suspect it is ignition related.

Take a look through these links and see if they help.

Let me know the results if you try the starting fluid.
