It is unlikely it's the plugs if it was running the day before.

 

When it will not start can you hear the fuel pump come on when you turn the key on?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
yeah I think so
Expert:  Neal replied 5 years ago.

I would make sure as this is a common issue, and check the fuel pressure if you can.

 

The pump is a likely cause.

 

Also, can you test for spark?
