    An engine need fuel, spark, and mechanical integrity (internal components in synchronization with each other and being able to develop adequate compression to start. Are you sure you are getting adequate fuel pressure are the injectors being triggered, and is the spark strong enough? There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
    Check the basics first.
