if there is an autozone near you or another car parts store....some of them can actually check coil packs if they are still good or not.....

Another item to look into is the crankshaft position sensor - it may not be able to provide a signal to the ECM (because of a grounded or broken wire), or it has failed altogether. No signal, no start.
