Use some starting fluid to determine if the problem is no spark or no fuel.

put it on your code reader. Sounds like a crank-angle sensor.

As was mentioned, first check and see if it's spark or fuel causing the problem. Pouring starting fluid down the TB and cranking is a good way to test. If you rule out the fuel, I would suspect either the coil or cam sensor (pick up plate under the distributor cap). It may also be the crank sensor but it's less likely.
