Does the fuel pump run when you switch ign on?
try the following routine if car wont start
a. does tach bounce a little while cranking? If not, some ignition
b. FIRST (once car is in no-start paradigm) floor the accelerator pedal
while cranking... if still wont start, PUMP accel while cranking.
- the first delivers less gas than normal, the second delivers more gas
