I know you probably already have done this probably stating the obvious here but have you checked your spark plug wires and their connections could be your spark plugs I would check more of your ignition system or another thing to do is to get it diagnosed by second person try other options without spending money just looking at things and adjusting things and pull spark plugs out and seeing if they're good and put them back in cuz it sounds like it's your ignition system is not working but the charging system is working but you have no spark? Check your battery connections, Maybe your ignition module coil pack tower, I don't know hope this helps?
