I have a 98 firebird v6 that won't start? Strong cranking (new battery), no dash service lights indicating any issues? Any diagnostics to consider or attempt? Thank you...

Check for fuel and spark and this will narrow it down. If no fuel then it could be the fuel pump, fuel filter or a fuse. No spark could be a bad coil or coil wire. Check the rotor and cap too.

If you have fuel and spark run a compression test. If all cylinders test low or zero it's jumped timing. HTH. -Jim
