Check your alternator belt (to be sure it is tight).

Try jump starting the vehicle. If it does start with a jump, suspect the alternator isn't charging the battery for some reason. Then take the car to the autoparts store and have them check the charging system and battery (the will do ti for free).

Check for a spark

In order to check for a spark at one of the spark plug wires, remove the spark plug wire from the spark plug. Connect it to a spark tester and connect the other end of the spark tester to a good engine ground (a bolt will do fine). Have an assistant to crank the engine and you should see a spark jump the gap in the spark tester. If so, the ignition system is doing its job. If not, more testing f the ignition system is required.

Also check your fuel pressure. You can "rent" a fuel pressure gauge for your local auto parts store.

Post the results of both tests here.
