Have someone help you, then using a can of starting fluid, spray some fluid in the intake while your friend tries to start the engine. If everything ELSE is working properly, and the engine starts briefly with the starting fluid, there is probably an issue with the fuel delivery. It could also be related to EGR valve, especially on a vehicle that is getting a little older. Sometimes a plugged EGR circuit can cause problems with the engine.
