1992 Bonneville won't start

Car is a 1992 Pontiac Bonneville SSE, 3.8, NO supercharger.

It has over 200,000 miles but I've had no mechanical problems with it whatsoever. It ran great on the way home from work Friday; I didn't drive it from Saturday-Monday; this morning I went to start it and the engine just spins and makes no attempt to start.

I haven't had time yet to determine whether it's getting spark or fuel, but the fact that it doesn't even sputter tells me it's probably ignition-related. I know you can't really diagnose anything based on this limited information, but I was just hoping that somebody may know of something common that might cause this problem in a GM car of this vintage.

Any information or advice will be greatly appreciated!

Check fuel pressure with a guage,check for spark with a spark tester and check for injector pulse with a noid light.After you have done this we could possibly have an intelligent answer to the question.

I'm definitely not getting any spark. So what should I look at on this car?
