very likely a fuel problem. First pull the air cleaner cover off and try choking the engine by putting your hand over the intake partially choking it. If this don't work then go Down on the bottom right hand side behind the battery you will see a fuel regulator on top of it is a fuel solenoid with 2 wires coming off it. Below the fuel solenoid you will see 2 -1/4" pipe plugs one on top of the other. If you pull the top one out and gas comes out then you have fuel up to the solenoid. If you pull the bottom one out and crank the engine then you should get gas out of the bottom one. If you don't then make sure you are getting 12 vdc to those 2 wires during cranking. If you do then You are going to have to pull the 4 screws out of the solenoid and pull the solenoid off and make sure you the seat on your solenoid valve is not sticking. If all this checks out and you are getting fuel out both 1/4" pipe plug holes, then you will need to see if you have a spark at the spark plugs, if you don't then something is shorting out your ignition coils. Disconnect wire 18 from its terminal located above the oil cooler. If the engine starts and runs with this wire disconnected then you need to trace this wire back to the control panel and see whats causing it to ground out.
Let me know if this helps.
