If you have spark and fuel, do a compression test. If all cylinders test very low or zero the timing chain has jumped. Try spraying some starting fluid down the throttle body. If it'll run a few seconds on that it's a fuel problem. If not, check for spark. If you have spark do the compression test. HTH. -Jim
