Hi there. In situations like this when you have fuel and spark, the logical step is to check ignition timing issues. In many cases, the crankshaft position sensor or cam sensor can cause a timing issue which will cause the no start issue.

It might be a good idea to contact a professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to come to your location to complete an inspection to determine why the car is not starting. This will eliminate a lot of the guess work and let you get a better sense of what is wrong with your car.
