There is only one thing, does it have compression?

3 things needed are fuel, spark and compression.

Ok, you have the dual overhead cam motor. You need to check the belt. You are right at the time for replacing the belt. If it breaks, it will bend valves and complicate things.

When the engine cranks, does it sound odd? If the belt broke, you most likely have bent some valves.

Have you checked the following: Spark (should be blue snapping spark)
Fuel and fuel pressure (should be within manufacturer's specs and
be getting a good pulsing power to each
injector)
Engine compression Should be within the manufacturer's spec.

If the belt broke, you could have bent valves.

Let me know what you have found.
