To answer your PM
When it does not start you need to check for spark
pull one of the spark plug wires place it near ground
ask a helper to crank the engine
you watch for a spark arching from the wire
also check the relays at the side of the fender
and let me know

If it does you need to look for fuel and fuel pump
and if it does nt you have coil relays
replace crank sensor
