Welcome to 2CarPros.

When an engine refuses to start, most often it is a fuel related issue or ignition related. Take a look through this link:

The easiest thing to do is see if it starts for a couple seconds using starting fluid. If it does, then we know if is a fuel related issue. If it doesn't, then chances are it is ignition related.

Here are links that explain how to check fuel pressure and how to check for ignition spark:

Do these things and let me know what you find. Also, let me know if you have other questions.

Take care,
Joe
