Check if there is spark on any of the spark plugs.

Spark? Yes :
Spark? No: Check crank position sensor.. take it any auto-parts store e.g. autozone, pepboys, o'reilly for free testing.

Crank position tested okay?
Yes: good
No: Replace it

If Crank position tested okay, if still equipped with distributor cap => check distributor cap and rotor => make sure it is okay. If not equipped with distributor cap, check Direct Ignition Coil.

Check for disconnected or bad wire connectors and terminals. Check fuel injectors fuses and relays.

Good luck
