Check your fuel pressure at fuel rail. Also is your check engine light on? If so have codes read. Possibly crankcase position sensor. If it's not working properly the fuel pump will not come on. And you sure your timing belt is ok. Interference engine. Valve damage if it breaks or jumps time. If you go to replace crank sensor and are not sure about age of timing belt or water pump now would be a perfect time to replace them while you are in there.
