Are you sure you are pushing up on the correct plate? If I remember correctly, when you remove the air filter the plate you need to move is on the left (driver's) side as you are facing the motor.

When you put the key in the "on" position (final position before engaging the starter) do you hear the whine of the fuel pump? Do not try starting the car while doing the next item! With the key in the "on" position, go to the rear of your vehicle and push up on the throttle plate. You should only have to do this a couple of times. You should hear a rush of air as you are bleeding the system. As the fuel is coming in there will be a loud noise like a screaming cat. It is very easy to flood the car at this time.

If air is in the fuel line or the pump is not starting then you will not have fuel coming through the injectors. Let us know how it goes!
