Hey there. Considering all the parts that have been replaced, I think you may have an issue with the fuel reaching your engine. This can be caused by low fuel pressure. Low fuel pressure can be caused by a clogged fuel filter or a faulty fuel pump. I would recommend having the fuel pressure tested by a qualified professional to diagnose the no start and determine if the fuel filter or fuel pump are in need of replacement. I would recommend replacing the fuel filter first because it is the more inexpensive part. If the fuel filter does not resolve the issue, the fuel pump is likely the problem.
