    If you have spark at the spark plug end of the ignition wires, and if you have fuel pressure to the fuel injectors, the next thing to check would be to se if the ecu (computer) is turning the injectors on. The injectors have a plug with two wires, one has 12 volts with the key on or cranking and the other wire should have a pulsing ground as the engine is being cranked. if you have a test light hook the clamp to battery positive and prob the other end in the injector wire and crank vehicle, the test light should blink.

    To make sure the engine has no internal mechanical damage which would cause a compression problem try spraying starting fluid into the air cleaner snorkel and see if engine starts.

Turn key to start-engine turns and i have spark wont start


I would check fuel pressure so you can rule out pump. I had a bad pump right out of the box before. Also you may want to change fuel filter so you can rule out plugged filter. You have spark, sure seems like still no fuel.
