Welcome to the forum, are you TBI fuel injection? If so there is an injector/s in the throttle-body. Use a gage and check fuel pressure. Are there any trouble-codes, you should be able to check codes yourself?

When you first turn the key on, no crank, can you hear the pump run for a few seconds? If not, I'd have to check for voltage and ground at the pump connector. How long since a tune-up?
