Spray some starting fluid down the throttle body and see if it will run for a few seconds on that. If so, it's a fuel problem. If not and you know that you have spark run a compression test. If all cylinders test very low or zero, the timing chain has jumped. HTH. -Jim

It is not a fuel problem, guranteed, Compression is good on all
