Are you getting Fuel, Fire, and Air? When you turn your key on does your fuel pump turn on and prime for a second then go off>? Start with the basics then go from there. Spray some starting fluid in the intake and try to start it, "gas on a rag and hold it over throttle body will work also." I need some more details. Pull a plug wire or the coil wire that goes to the distributor and ground it to see if it sparks when you try and crank it. I need more details of what the problem because there could be so many possibilities.
