Hello shuck1311.
If you have spark and fuel it then makes the issue a little more complicated.
Have you tried to depress the fuel pedal down a little to start it?
Is there an excess of fuel in your engine oil? It can get that way after extended cranking and poor spark.
After that, he first thing I would do is verify fuel pressure. It should be around 40 PSI when you cycle the key to the on position.
If that proves to be good then a compression test is the next step. All should be around 150 PSI.
What about mileage on this engine? It would be rare but it's possible a timing chain has skipped if it's a high miler.
Here is a starting point for you.
Leave me more questions, if you have them, in the comments and I will help you along with this.
