you will need to check fuel pressure with a guage there is a test port on the fuel rail where you can test fuel pressure should be around 40 psi key on engine off. if its very low it probably wont start, 5 psi would be plenty enough to push it through the fuel filter but not nearly enough to start the engine.
you should also check for spark at a plug wire.
