No one can tell you without more information. Is there a check engine light? Does the motor turn over? Does it have gas?

....many of them can...you've gotta have manny, moe or jack read your diagnostic trouble codes read...crank angle sensor, idle air control, throttle position sensor...get your codes read...buy one for your own~

okay, lets start with the basics; air, fuel, spark, timing~

power to the coil-packs? fuel pressure there (you can put the ignition key to the on position without starting and listen for the gasoline to flow into and back through the fuel loop...spark timing, if there should be set correctly~

no codes? huh? no P1002? not even P0000?

no codes.... power to the coil packs, fuel pressure was there he thinks its not get no spark in the correct timing, sounds like the timing is off..

the cam sensor or crank angle sensor would throw up a Check Engine Light~

how about system ground? the battery cable at the other end that connects to the chassis/ground should be wirebrushed clean and good solid contact, though the battery and the starter gets plenty of juice, perhaps the chassis ground isn't.
