My car has been sitting for 3 months and had died just before that. I thought it was the fuel pump so I just finished replacing that as well as the fuel filter. Jumped the battery back to life and the car cranks but won't start. I checked a couple plugs (off of different coil packs) and neither had spark. Plugs are about a year old and the wires and 1 coil pack are about 2 years old. What could cause no spark?

No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it.

Do you think the fact that the car has been sitting for 3 months plays a major part in my problem? What would that likely effect?

Check and test the crankshaft position sensor
