Legacy won't start

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was driving my 2005 subaru legacy non
turbo and as I was coming to a stop sign it
stalled. And wouldn't start again. Replaced
plugs and wires and crank position sensor.
Still nothing. So I took the timing cover case
of and there was a mouse nest wound
inbetween the belt and gears.  Assuming it
jumped time. Got a new belt tried to retime it
like a thousand people said. And nothing...
any guesses

Have you check the fuel pressure? Checked for spark at the engine?

There should be a Shrader valve on the fuel line. You will need a fuel pressure gauge. https://www.2carpros.com/articles/how-to-check-fuel-system-pressure-and-regulator
