Does it crank and just not start? Have you tested it for spark? And is it getting any? If not, it sounds like a timing issue (jumped time or broken belt/chain), or coil pack/ is dead. If there is no spark the gas can't burn.

It cranks and sounds like it back firers, smoke started coming out of where air filter is at.
