Truck is turning over but wont start

I have a 96 Tacoma 2.4 engine. this morning I went out to try and start it and it would turn over but it would not start. it ran just fine the day before, I had no problems. I let it sit for a couple hours and then went back out and tried to start it and it was still doing the same thing. Any suggestions?!?!?

check your fuses in the dash and under the hood, your coils may not be getting power.

do you have a distributor? if so take the cap off and check it and test your ignition coil is firing

Make sure your battery contacts are clean and actually making contact with your battery cables.

if the truck is cranking but wont start and you are getting fire check fuses and if that doesnt showm the problem pull the fuel pump fuse or the fuel injection fuse crank the truck about 8-10seconds put fuse back in and try starting the truck could possibly be flooded

also check your engine grounds, a broken or bad connection engine ground wire can kill power to the ignition coils
