Probably have no spark. May be a bad coil, may be a crankshaft sensor. You could take them out and have them tested at an auto parts store.

I just replaced the coil pack and still nothing just sits and spins but I was just told that it doesn't seem to be getting enough power. Ur battery is checking out fine

Sounds like plenty of power to me. After cranking on it tho, you may need to charge the battery back up. Try the crankshaft sensor.

I have changed that and still nothing how would I know if it jumped time

Good morning. This engine has a timing chain, so chances of the timing jumping are very minimal. But to check for this, you could do a compression test, there would be low cylinders compression. But looking at this more, there is a ignition control module that is located on top of the coil pack, I believe on the left side of the engine. You can't miss it. Should take that and have it tested.
