Hi there. As you already know, replacing components without proper diagnoses, can be expensive and time consuming without resolution. Assuming, the engine is mechanically sound, turns over uniform with compression. This would lead me to believe, it could be no fuel pressure caused by, a faulty fuel pump, a faulty fuel pressure regulator, or a plugged fuel filter. It could be a lack of spark caused by a faulty ignition module. Proper diagnoses should be performed, as there are many other possibilities. I recommend having your vehicle’s no start be diagnosed and repaired by a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic.
