Have the helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If you have spark everywhere, check fuel pressure.
Also check for a fuel injector pulse, engine cranking.
To check for spark, you just pull a spark plug wire loose, use a spark tester in the boot, ground spark tester to metal part of engine. Have helper crank it, while you watch for spark. Your local auto store should sell a cheap spark tester. There are other ways to check for spark, secondary ignition voltage hasn't killed me yet, but, I still don't like it. The safest way is don't hold anything in your hand. The spark tester has an alligator clip on it, you don't have to hold it.
Without doing a little testing it may be hard to pin point the issue?
