You should hook up a fuel pressure gauge to see what the pressure is when it wont start. If you have no pressure chances are it is a fuel pump, if you do have pressure than you should check for spark from the coil. If there is no spark, try a coil, if there is, check for spark from the plug wire. Is the check engine light on? A bad crank sensor, coil or fuel pump can give you this condition.

I agree, but don't "try" any parts before testing them and damning them as bad first .

Most electrical parts are not returnable to stores and you may eat a coil and it's not your problem....

Test them as per the specs and procedures in autolibrary below first and then determine what's bad and what's not .
