Since the engine is indeed TRYING to crank, we now already rule out a faulty starter, alternator and battery.
What you need to do now is to test for proper fuel and spark to the engine. The easiest way to check for spark is to unplug one of the spark plug wires and let the spark jump. If you see a bright blue spark jumping, then there is sufficient spark. If you see a dull orange spark then the plugs and/or plug wires need replacing. If there is no spark at all, there are a few components that it could be, so just post the results.
To test for fuel, use a fuel pressure gauge and check the pressure of fuel at the fuel rail. If proper fuel pressure is present, check the fuel injectors to see if fuel is making it to them.
Just post your results and I will follow up.
