How can your car turn over and not have spark? Does the engine just crank but not turn over? Check/replace your wires.

First things first:
Pull the codes:

It probably won't show much but just in case, that's the first thing to do

Next, I'm pretty sure that year has the infamous TFI ignition module
It could show power at the coil but no spark at the plugs
Here's the DIY test for the module:
