knock sensor wouldnt make it not start. p0138 is a 02 sensor code, I couldnt find p0153 maybe you meant p0135 which is also a 02 sensor dtc. and would not cause the vehcile not to start. if your not gettin spark you may have a cam or crank sensor not sending rpm signal to the pcm. Which would cause it not to have spark, could be other things also I would check all your fuses make sure none are blown. then get your hands on a scanner and see if the pcm is seeing a rpm signal.
