Spark from the coils to the spark plugs?
Fuel pump and gas. Even pour starting fluid?
Sounds like you have an idea of what to check for
And everything you said should be starting??

I would first check all the fuses (engine bay and cabin dash)
Take oil filler cap off and have assistant crank engine
Watch for valve movement?
No valve movement then broken timing belt or chain

Try taking out up stream O2 sensor and start engine
If it starts then the exhaust is clogged

Check air filter. Air flow.
Check IAC valve (clean if necessary)
Check compression on the cylinders
Check timing

That is it. All anyone can do.
