Sound,s to me like you may need to check your timing belt,sound,s like it may have jumped or broke.

No timing belt is ok I checked it. Problem seems to me elictrical not mechanical. Any suggestion


Well, i think you may need to check fuel pressure to rule out your fuel pump,but first check all fuse,s,and fuel pump relay first.
