Pull the distributor cap off and see if the rotor is turning when you try the starter. If it turns, check the primary and secondary windings on the coil with an ohm meter. If coil is good, check the magnetic pickup coil in the distributor with an ohm meter. Another possibility is your timing belt has jumped or broken; taking off the cover of the belt will allow you to see the belt, but if the rotor in the distributor is not turning, the belt has failed..
