Any trouble codes? what is the fuel pressure reading at the test port on the top of the engine?
First check to ensure it is getting fuel and as well spark and that all hoses / vacuum lines are not cracked or rotted and all fluid levels are correct and up to par ...check the air filter check that everything from the aircleaner to the plenum are tight no wires are burnt or exposed causing a short in the system try to make sure it is getting proper fuel if it has a fuel shut off switch make sure to re engage it just for whatever reason there are many things to ask you but these are a few places to start Look for the obvious 1st then check the fuel filter condition is it getting fuel >
