    Spray some good carb cleaner into the throttle body and see if it trys to start. Could also be a possible timing belt issue.

    thank you it got spark on the plug ,tried squirting a bitof starting fluid on one of hose to the throttle body and run but die off again.
    i did suspect the fuel pump but have to check if there is voltage going to the pump
