Are you sure there is no spark? Check the relays inside the engine compartment the eec relay is the first to click when the key is turned then comes the fuel pump relay. These Ford relays are notorious for going bad in sequence. try listening or feeling for a click from the eec and fuel pump relays when the key is turned to on, if not then try swapping the ac relay with the eec relay or the fuel pump whichever one does not click and see if it helps

1997 Pontiac sunfire 2.2 liter no spark no fuel turns over but wont start?

Without fuel and the lack of spark, you can crank the engine continuously for the next 5 years and it will never start. One needs to find out why there is no spark or fuel. Start with the fuel pump and check the fuse(s), and then check the operation of the fuel pump. Check the electrical system of the car - check fuses, check wiring.
