I would start with checking the battery, belts and fuses. Some places like Autozone will check the battery under a load for free. If all that checks out, then move on to fuel and spark. That will give you a good indicator of where to go from there. If you have no spark then you are moving on to your coil, distributor, etc. If you have no fuel then you would check your filter, injectors pump etc. Keep in mind that a broken timing chain/belt will cause a no start condition as well, as will a faulty neutral safety switch, so if nothing else seems to add up you might check those as well. good luck

And you know the fuel filter is good? Could be injector problem: just as a check, spray some starting fluid into the intake and see if engine runs a few seconds. If it does, it is a fuel problem. Check injector fuse, as a start. Check fuel pressure. Check injector circuit. If engine won't start with starting fluid, check if you are getting spark. Problem may be in the ignition system.
How about the fuel pump...are you getting the fuel to the cylinders? Is the fuel making it through the fuel line through the fuel filter? Drop a few drops in 1 cylinder, if it fires, you have a fuel problem. Does it turn over? If not check out the motor starter!
You need to find out if the fuel pump is working, getting gas up to the engine. If the pump is working and seen to have good fuel pressure, check ignition by checking for spark.. To work, the engine needs, you know, gas, air, spark, and compression. Why people say, check for gas, check for spark.
replcace filter? ,you say you have good pressure.have you checked your pressure with a guage? i had pressure but not enuff,really 96 4.3 vortex needs to be pretty high(check requierments at parts store) fuel pump is in the tank, cheapest one @ 235.00
I'd use a gage and check proper fuel pressure, key on engine off, 60--66 psi with spider fuel system.
Engine cranking did you visually check for spark at the spark plugs? Engine cranking is there a fuel injector pulse?https://s8.postimg.org/50arofh11/fuel_pump.jpg
Click on the link for fuel pump relay, you can check the fuse. At the fuel pump, gray wire is voltage, black is ground.
