Here's a few things to check. Bad crank position sensor, bad tps, Water in the fuel system, dirty filter or pick up in the tank, timing is off, engine is seizing.
Have you done a compression check ? Need to use a actual water remover, or drain the fuel system completely. What did the plugs look like ?
My gut is telling me crank sensor or a problem with that specific wire harness.
