Hello, Does it make a click noise when trying to start it?

If it clicks and does not start, if you have a good battery, you could have a bad starter, or the motor could be seized. Try turning the motor over by putting a socket on the balancer pulley bolt and turn it over by hand. Hopefully its not.

If it turns over and does not start, spray some starting fluid in the throttle body and see if it will start. If it does you have a fuel problem. If not, could be ignition related then you would need to check for spark. You would also need to verify you have injector pulse. Check compression last if all of these other things are good.

Hoping that this helps you out, and let me know if you have any more questions.
