Is it getting fuel to the engine? Is there sufficient airflow going into the engine? Based on your information that you give, it is hard to tell.

Seeing the car is a '94 model, does it have a distributor and rotor for an ignition system? Could be the rotor is malfunctioning? Fuel filter plugged? Fuel pump not working properly? Like I said, could 1 or multiple of many things. Need more info about the car and what things have been checked/replaced? -Op-

I have only had the car for almost a year and nothing has really been done to it other than I had the brakes done a couple of months ago. Other than that the car has always ran really good. Like I said I drove it on friday with no problems, I never drove it on saturday but when I went to drive it on sunday it would not start. No noise came from the engine other than a few clicks, the oil is fine, the battery is fine, I just dont know where to start looking

Does it make a noise when you try to start it?
