Did the car stall originally before it wouldn't start. Has the timing belt been changed?

Could be a lot of things. Could be as simple as a fuel pump fuse or bad as a busted timing belt (they are known to do this). If your engine seem the crank faster then usual, I suggest you remove your valve/timing belt cover to see if your belt have snap. You notice it if your camshaft are not turning when cranking. Before, I suggest you check for a blown fuse or bad fuel/ignition relay. If you fix it, I suggest you replace your timing belt. Those engine are with interference so if the timing belt snap, you need a complete engine replacement $$$!
