Check starter relay and starter and igntion fuses. next check battery cables and grounds. Get it scanned for codes if possible.

i have checked all the above i put new coil packs and ignition control module. checked plugs and 3rd cyclinder p;ug looked like it was bent with pliers. was not getting a spark from it. i got a friend to try to crank the car and there is a knocking noise coming from the timing side of the motor so i dont know anymore. i think i need a new motor.
