lots of stuff to check....
  1. fuel? does it have any, tank low etc? you never know when a gauge is gonna quit
  2. Check all wiring harneses in the engine valley at the valve cover gaskets. thouroughly inspect for any burnt, corroded, missing etc pins on both sides
  3. IS the CEL on? if so, codes would be helpful
  4. inspect fuel filter for debris, oil, etc. Verify that the fuel bowl is full......
  5. Check Oil, if oil is too low, it won't run. refill to proper level, attempt to start
  6. It's got to be pretty cold for fuel to gel, especially winter blend. How cold is it where you are?
  7. Has the CPS recall been done? this is the first thing I check when I have a stall or no start situation, it's a 30 dollar part, and It's always good to keep a spare
