Not trying to be funny! It could be almost anything! If you have an Auto Zone any place around you. See if you can get it their somehow and the will run a diagnostic scan at no charge. That should at least get you headed in the right direction. If you have spark, fuel, and air, and it will not start, the timing is off. ==Additionaly,== the other factor in this formula is compression. In order for the car to fire, you need all of the above + compression. If your head gasket has gone south, that can contribute to your problem.

I have a coolant leak in my 2001 Pontiac sunfire 2.4l motor and there are no leaks on the ground what could the problem be?

There is either a crack in the head gasket or some other part of the engine that is allowing the coolant to leak out through the tailpipe. Take the spark plugs out one at a time, turn the engine on and see if anything (like water) comes out of the spark plug holes. Also check to see if the spark plugs themselves are wet.
