Check a plug for fire at it by removing a wire to see spark,but i think it may be the fuel pump,just because you here it does not mean it is pumping fuel,the best way to check this is check the fuel pressure,and as i said before ,if you see spark at a plug,it will be the pump.

Thsnks I'll try it. Fuel pump not something i could fix, I'm hoping it's the sparkplug or coil pack. ? Idk tomorrow will have daylight to get some answers
