    Is it a case of the engine won't crank over when the starter is engaged or the engine cranks over but will not "fire"?
    If it won't crank over when the starter is engaged remove the spark plugs and put a wrench on the crankshaft pulley to turn over the engine manually to see if it has seized. If it cranks over but doesn't fire coolant has probably gotten to the ignition insulation. Check the obvious, check for spark at the spark plug and fuel at the fuel line when the engine is cranking.
    For specific tests you will need a workshop manual or more information. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info .There is a company that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You get a one year subscription to year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have ,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores, much cheaper than the factory manual. http://bit.ly/alldata_repair_manuals or try http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online and get an online repair manual subscription.
