If a car cranks but does not start its one of two things... no spark or no fuel. Check your fuel pump, if you are smelling fuel... you may have a serious leak that is starving the engine. BE CAREFUL!

Thnx ill check that

A pressure gauge is the proper way and attack it to the test port. But you smell fuel so you have some kind of pressure. I suspect the spark module failed, but as AgeeK stated if you do have a fuel leak it would be dangerous for you to have an open spark. I would recommend a shop of your choice on this one, you may have more than 1 problem.
