Hello,

I take it you mean that the engine turns over just won't start.

When you turn the key to the On Position do you hear the fuel pump run for about 3 - 5 seconds?

If Not check fuel pump relay. If relay appears good check out the link below for testing fuel pressure and regulator.

Also check to see if you have spark at the plugs. Spark should be Bright Bluish/White.
