Could be several things.. listen to see if you can still hear the fuel pump should hear it everytime you turn the ignition,buzzing nosie from the fuel tank..if you can hear that..then the fuel pump is ok and"should" be delivering fuel upto the engine...the other could be a failure on the crank speed sensor,and this can cause a non spark issue.. Another issue to listen for is the engine spinning over faster than it normally does..this would mean the timing belt has likely failed..
