The old saying goes, "Three things make a car go, Fuel, Fire and Air".
So, start with making sure there is nothing like a really dirty air cleaner or family of mice in the air box, keeping air from getting to the motor.
Next, check the spark with a friends' assistance. Remove a plug, keep it plugged in the boot and sit it where the threads contact bare metal. Be sure to hold the plug wire well away from the plug and I really can't tell you this is safe as testing for spark the safe way is not so easy or cheap. Use common sense and it only takes one quick blip of the key. Use a new plug and spark will immediately be there or not.
Now check for fuel by removing another plug. You might want to turn the engine over a few times before you remove it. Check to see if it is wet with fuel. If not, then there is an issue with fuel delivery/management.
If fuel is the problem, try to add some fresh fuel, at least a few gallons. Check fuel lines all the way to the fuel rail where they meet the injectors.
You can listen if injectors are working as they make a clicking sound when turning the motor over. You can also use a, "Test Light" to make sure they are working. Although, after so much time sitting, they could be hopelessly clogged. You can send them away to be cleaned and checked or get remanufactured from a parts store.
Other than that and the components that need to be checked with each, I can't do much more without being there.
Let me know how it goes and I will help as much as I can.
