    If it has fuel, yet will not run, you will need to find out what is missing... spark, timing, compression, or air.
    That vehicle should be fuel injected, so it does not have a carb.
    How do you know it is getting fuel?.
    You should be able to see fuel spraying into the engine when the engine is cranking over.
