It's spark or fuel no question!try taking the breather off and spray just a small amount of starting fluid through the air induction to see if it trys to start,if it does, that leans towards a fuel problem,if not, that moves on to a spark probllem,that maybe a bad crankshaft sensor. that tells the engine to spark, when fuel is present. it takes 180lbof pressure to run engine. no play there. thets why i asked you to usea small amount of starting fluid. this leads to fuel issue, such as fuel pump,clogged fuel pump filter, computer,ecm,under hood in main fuse box,check all relays box,under the hood,look for bad relay for fuel pump, hope this helps and thank you for choosing
