Here is a link to a tip I wrote nate. It sounds like your timing belt slipped a tooth or ten. Or it may be broken. Does the starter motor seem like its turning the motor much faster than it normally does? You say that you can see the external drive belts turning, if this is true then your starter is engaging correctly. If your timing is off, or belt is broken, the engine will not make compression. Put your hand over the intake while someone cranks it to see if you feel that intake stroke pull on your hand. Read my tip in the link above for lots more info.

this maybe caused by no fuel or faulty fuel pump, ignition coil, wire and plug crank position sensor. first check for spark by removing on spark plug wire and put a spark plug in the spark plug wire boot, donot touch the plug only the boot have someone crank the car over. if you see spark, that part of the ignition is good. if not, check the coil resistance if should 40 to 80 ohm with a volt meter pf not replace. if ok, but no spark check the igniton control madule make sure the coil and module are receiving current. if not check the fuse that feels them. if it is ok, check distributor cap and rotor. if rotor and cap are fine, check for fuel at either the fuel filter, the fuel return line or removing some spark plug and see if they are wet. if there is no fuel check the fuel pump and the fuse and relay that control the pump. if there is fuel with high pressure but there is no spark, check the crank sensor for signal with a volt meter while cranking the vehicle

The other coil pack replacement would not be a bad idea. The rubber around the coil pack that is worn could be letting in moisture and condensation, thus cutting out .
Another possibility is the fuel system is loosing pressure and cutting out. The fuel pump and fuel pump sender could be the problem

I'm thinking fuel pump. When computer senses lean condition, it tries to compensate by increasing fuel. Then becomes too rich causing fuel cutoff thus the rev indication. If pump overheats it shuts down thus no start. The good news on this car the fuel pump can be accessed under the spare tire without dropping the fuel tank. Check fuel pressure to verify. Other suspects ISC and Throttle Position Sensor.
