It could be a few things.... I would check:
- fuel (is it empty? Is the fuel filter clogged? Is the fuel pump working?)
- Spark (is the spark plug wires ok? Silanoid ok?)
- Timing (did the car's timing change? If the timing belt/chain slipped or broke)
- Exaused plugged?
Most times its fuel related.
check air cleaner then follow gijay
and blah blah blah cause this part of the answer is forced
A motor needs three things to operate. Fuel, compression and spark. Since you say it has spark then it must be one of the other two. Check to see if you have fuel getting to your fuel rail. If you don't have fuel in your fuel rail, cycle the key to accessory and listen for the fuel pump to hum. If it hums then replace your fuel filter or check for a leak in your fuel line. If you do then you have a problem with your compression. Put a compression tester on each cylinder of the motor to see if that is the problem.
