Check engine light come on when you turn the ignition on? Any trouble codes stored? Do you have a 12 volt incandescent test light?

Let it crank for around 10 seconds. See if it triggers a code. Make sure all coils are plugged in.

Does the engine sound any different when it cranks now (faster)?
Have you pull the timing cover forward and made sure your timing belt isn't stripped/broken?

If you can see the rocker arms thru the oil cap, see if they move while cranking....

Thank you for all the help , I cranked it for the 10 seconds to bring up a code and it started , I pulled the plugs and they were gaped at .050" and corroded with a light ash coating so I replaced them and it's been running fine , I know I said I did the "spark test " and from what I saw there wasn't any , there's a glare on the plastic tube that's right in your line of sight , I tried the tester out when the car ran and any spark jumped from the business end to any available ground skipping the testers gap altogether , it is what it is and thanks again
