If battery is ok, spray some quick start in the throttle body to see if it'll start for a bit, if it does, it means it's not getting fuel past the injectors. Check fuel filter,check fuel pressure. If fuel is ok check crank shaft sensor. If still doesn't start, check spark at spark plugs. If spark is ok, check timing. If timing is ok, do a compression test

These cars are known for crankshaft sensors going out depending on what your weather was like it may have got wet I would check coil packs and plugs for sparks if no spark ohm test the coil wires of they are all good change out the crankshaft sensor had this issue in mine and that's all it was about 100 dollar part
