    Yes check fuses and look for power at the coil wit the key on. I have seen the rotors fail, hard to get to have to remove top timing belt cover and plastic trim covers to inspect.Check the basics. Listen to the fuel injectors with a mechanic's stethoscope while a friend cranks over the engine, do they go click, click , click if they do the computer is triggering them and id receiving a crank and cam signal needed to fire the coils.There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
