Check to see if it is getting spark and fuel to the engine. One is most likely missing.

There is a fuel pump connector/plug located behind the rear passenger tire that can come unplugged. If this is the problem, the engine will fire when starting fluid is introduced (eliminating no spark problem). Slide under the car behind the passenger rear wheel by the muffler and look for a connector/plug mounted to the body about arms' length up. Check for seating/corrosion.
