Cool 1999 2.5 won't start

I recently purchased a 99 ranger 2.5 that won't start. When motor turns over it act like it has jumped time. Has new coil packs, plugs and wires. Any help would help. Truck has 81,000 miles on it. Thanks

Does it sound like it is normal when trying to start it or is it freewheeling like it has no compression?

1st....is it getting spark? test by taking out one plug, turn over with wire attached and look for spark. if it is sparking then,
2nd....is it getting fuel? several ways to test here....first I would try unhooking gas line down from filter and ensuring fuel is coming through filter.......
