when you turn the key, before turning and holding to start the engine, does the check engine light come on and can you hear a buzzing-ish sound (fuel pump priming)?

Also check for spark at the plugs (see Spark link in my signature).

try starting it with the gas pedal pushed down a little. If the intake has no suction when you are trying to start it without the gas pedal pushed down, I would think that would point to a clogged IACV.

Check whether the timing belt slipped a few teeth.
