could be your head gasket. check for leaks etc and check oil and water. hope there's no whiticsh gunk under oil cap. if i'm wrong you should be able to fix it easy. if i'm right get a new motor

I have an identical issue... I was out last night and my altinator went out so i replaced it... I started it up and drove to auto zone and my fule pump cut out then picked back up then the car died i replaced the fuel pump and sprayed brake cleaner in the intake because it works the same as starting fluid and it cranks but WILL NOT START. so i checked the rotor checked for spark and both were good... I also changed the fuse but not the relay i put plugs in 2 weeks ago... I need help before i send it to scrap yard
