Check for spark, fuel and compression. The engine must have all three to run. Spray some starting fluid down the intake manifold. Just two short bursts. Does the engine run a few seconds? If so it's a fuel problem. If not it's an ignition (no spark) problem or compression (jumped timing) problem. A catastrophic failure (it just quit) is usually a fuel pump or jumped timing. An ignition system problem is usually marked by chugging, a flashing check engine light, and just generally running poorly before it actually dies. HTH. - Jim
